Such a wonderful movie and Tom Hanks was so deserving of an Oscar for this one! He does an incredible job as Josh, the 13 year old who finds that his wish at a carnival has come true. He lands a "dream job" fit for any kid in an adult's body, and unexpectedly finds love along the way. Hilarious and fun, Big is one of Tom Hanks' best!

The idea of trading places with another person or an older/younger self to show a different perspective is archetypal by now. This is one of Hanks' earlier films and he does a very good job of portraying a kid suddenly thrust into adulthood, but it's not that easy to get a job. It's interesting to look back now at toy technology that was cutting edge at the time though.

Insipid piece of trash. Does not hold up over time at all. Tom Hanks? Big deal. Big is small. And I detested the female character who chain smokes throughout the film. What's that all about and it's a kid movie? Only bright spot is Loggia as the boss. Don't bother wasting your time.

I really recommend watching the extended version, it shows a bit more. Do not forget to watch both DISCS , the second DISC is also very good.

Has both the original theatre release version as well as an extended version. One of Tom Hanks first movies to make him a star. Really enjoyed watching it again.

It is entertaining and can be funny. I found the film to be overrated.
