Synopsis:
At a carnival, young Josh Baskin (Tom Hanks) 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.

Family classic - Big review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

One of my all time favourite family films, with a brilliant performance by Tom Hanks. Great fun for adults, as you giggle at what Hanks' character gets away with as a result of his naivety.

There are a lot of insights and wonderful observations of childhood in Tom Hanks' portrayal of this 13 year old boy. His acting is amazing. Some of the other actors lag behind a bit. Overall a great film for anyone but aimed at families.
