"Big" is one of Tom Hanks' best performances. He is my favorite and I just love his childish behaviour in this movie. And there are some great scenes in this film too. Here are my favorites.
After Josh was rejected on a thrill ride, he discovers a Zoltar machine. He puts in a quarter and he can make a wish. He wishes he were big. Josh receives a card which says his wish was granted.
The day after, when Josh wakes up, he sees his wish came true. He is big, Josh is a grown up now.
Josh tried to convince his mom, but she didn’t believe it was really him. So he is trying it with his best friend Billy. At first he doesn’t believe it either, but when Josh starts singing a song they always sing together, Billy believes him.
Josh and his boss meet each other in the toystore. Josh starts telling him what he does and doesn’t like about the companies toys. When Josh sees a giant floor piano, the two of them start playing “Chopsticks”.
Susan asks Josh if he wants to leave the party with her. They get into a limo and Josh is fascinated by it. He starts playing with all the buttons in the car, while Susan is trying to have a serious conversation with him.
Susan goes to Josh’s apartment, which is filled with toys. She sees a trampoline and Josh invites her to jump on it. At first Susan doesn’t want to, but as soon as she gets on it she has the most fun ever.
Josh and Paul are playing racquetball and when Paul says he won, Josh tells him he’s cheating. Paul just wants the ball back, but Josh does everything to prevent Paul from getting back that ball.
Josh found the Zoltar machine and is trying to undo his wish, so he can go home. When Susan sees him standing at the machine, she knows she has to say goodbye to him. Susan drives Josh home, they say goodbye and Josh is finally home and his ‘young’ self.
