Have you ever had a really big secret?
Family comedy classic with Tom Hanks, in a star-making performance, as a young boy living in the body of a man who charms his way to the top of a toy company. Named the 10th best fantasy film ever by the American Film Institute in 2008.
Frustrated with the lameness of childhood, 12-year-old Josh (David Moscow) makes a wish to be "big" to a fairground slot machine. The next morning he wakes to find his exterior transformed into that of a 30-year-old man (Tom Hanks). Unable to stay at home (his mum thinks this strange man has kidnapped her son) he goes to New York City to lay low and to locate the slot machine.
There, his ability to get inside the mind of a child is identified as financial gold by the owner of the MacMillan Toy company (Robert Loggia). Rocketing up the company ranks, Josh is soon struggling with all the complexities of the adult world as well as trying to find a way to return home.
