  • Many films since have tried to replicate this story of a kid in a adults body and nice versa, but this will always be the original and the best.
  • One of the most memorable scense of the 80s, when Tom Hanks and Robert Loggia play Chopsticks on the giant piano.

Tom Hanks won rave reviews for his Oscar nominated performance (1988, Best Actor) as a twelve-year old boy trapped inside a thirty-year-old body, in director Penny Marshall's winning comedy.

At a carnival, young Josh Baskin wishes he was big - only to awake the next morning and discover he is! With the help of his friend Billy (Jared Rushton), Josh lands a job at a toy company. There, his inner wisdom enables him to successfully predict what children want to buy, making the awestruck, naive Josh irresistible to a beautiful ladder climbing colleague (Elizabeth Perkins). But the more he experiences being an adult, the more Josh longs for the simple joys of childhood.

Young Josh
I wish I were big.

The space goes down, down baby, down, down the roller coaster. Sweet, sweet baby, sweet, sweet, don't let me go. Shimmy, shimmy, cocoa pop. Shimmy, shimmy, rock. Shimmy, shimmy, cocoa pop. Shimmy, shimmy, rock. I met a girlfriend - a triscuit. She said, a triscuit - a biscuit. Ice cream, soda pop, vanilla on the top. Ooh, Shelly's out, walking down the street, ten times a week. I read it. I said it. I stole my momma's credit. I'm cool. I'm hot. Sock me in the stomach three more times.
