Reviews
Mine: Enjoyable at first viewing, but does not stand up second time around. Hanks gives a great performance. Support is weak.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A 12-year-old boy wishes he were ``big''--and gets his wish, waking up the next morning as a 30-year-old man! Charming fantasy tackles a rare modern-day subject--innocence--and pulls it off thanks to Hanks' superb, seemingly guileless performance, and Marshall's surefooted direction. A real treat. Written by coproducers Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg. Later a Broadway musical.
