Big, 1988

Directed by Penny Marshall
Written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg
Starring Tom Hanks, Elizabeth Perkins, and Jared Rushton

This is a sweet movie about boy who gets his wish to be big, and what happens because of that. It has some funny parts, but is more poignant than comic. It's not really a movie for kids, as it is partly a reflection on innocence, growing up, and adulthood. Tom Hanks does a good job of playing a boy in a man's body without getting the cheap laughs that were certainly available.
