Now an iconic, breakthrough performance for Tom Hanks, Big is 100% cotton candy fun, an Adam Sandler movie with more of a brain and a heart. Even a soul. The story has become timeless -- and it's kept Penny Marshall's career alive for almot 20 years now -- about a boy who sees that adults have everything that he doesn't, so he wishes to be "big." When he gets his wish, comedy and some touching moments where young Josh learns, real quick, about the difference between kids and grown-ups. Very funny, with good performances from everyone in the film. Though, if her kid was ostensibly kidnapped, why wouldn't mom (Mercedes Ruehl) call the cops?
