Overview

More than anything else, 13-year old New Jerseyite Josh David Moscow wants to be "big." That's the wish he makes at an odd-looking amusement pier fortunetelling machine. The next morning, Josh wakes up-only to discover that he's grown to manhood overnight! At this point, the part is taken over by Tom Hanks. Still a 13-year-old mentally and emotionally, Josh decides to hide out in New York City until he can figure out what to do next. He lucks into a job with a major toy company run by kid-at-heart McMillan Robert Loggia. By cannily bringing a child's eye view to McMillan's business, Josh rises to the top-and in process, he falls in love with fellow employee Susan Elizabeth Perkins. But he's still a kid, and he'd like to go back to his own world and own body. Written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, Big proved a crucial success for budding director Penny Marshall, who'd work harmoniously with Hanks again on the radically different A League of Their Own. The cinematography was by Barry Sonenfeld, who went on to become a director himself with The Addams Family. That Big was heavily reliant upon the input of Tom Hanks and Penny Marshall was proven by the failed attempt to turn the property into a Broadway musical.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Mark Deming
While Josh Baskin in Big was not Tom Hanks's first major role, it began to transform the star of Bachelor Party and Dragnet into one of the leading movie actors of the 1990s. Director Penny Marshall and screenwriters Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg tell their story with understated intelligence and a marvelous feel for the mind of a 12-year-old, a time when adolescent obsessions are just starting to edge into the child's psyche. Both physically and emotionally, Hanks does a nearly flawless job of putting the soul of a 12-year-old boy into the body of a 35-year-old man. His awkward gangliness and clumsy over-enthusiasm look and feel as if he's not yet used to the body he's grown into, and his naivete is convincing, unforced, and utterly winning. Josh never seems childish, but rather like a child who is out of his element and determined not to let it show (which, of course, just makes it show all the more). Hanks also had the good fortune to be cast alongside Elizabeth Perkins, whose sharp but sneakily charming personality has rarely been used to better advantage, and Jared Rushton, who in his scenes with Hanks achieves the goofy rapport of two kids talking after school with someone almost three times his age. Hanks's and Marshall's feel for details and willingness to take a subtle approach raise the film well above Vice Versa or Like Father, Like Son, two similarly themed films which took a much broader tone, making clear how big a difference a light touch can make.

    A great story to make you remember that life is just not about w

    A great story to make you remember that life is just not about work. Be a kid once in awhile. I forgot about the movie for over 10 years then rediscovered it a few months ago. It brought a smile to my face. My 2 grandsons, 8 and 10 love it. We ave watched it three times together, at their request!
    And for the stuff shirts, it has social redeeming values, it makes you laugh and feel good.

    Fun romp

    This is one of those movies that I just love to come back to. It's fun to see the way someone gets that chance we all want - to design toys and give honest feedback. Always reminds me to work at a place that is interested in real opinions and is fun, not just a bunch of suits. Always fun.

    Big is awesome!

    This movie allows for escapism from everyday life and strife. I would recommend owning this to anyone who just wants a little respite from life!

    Big; A child's super-ego taking over his life

    The movie Big is a classic movie that all people should see. There is something in Big for all ages. For the kids there is a laugh and a fun story, for adults the same applies but the movie also portrays a child living out the role of his super-ego. The super-ego is the part of the human unconsciousness that wants to do everything now, and not wait till later. In the case of Tom Hanks, we see a child grow up overnight and take on the tasks of an adult now instead of later. Definately a movie to see.
