super fun movie

Great movie for kids and adults. Tom hanks wishes he was big..a grown up. The wish comes true and he quickly realizes it is better to be small...young. he winds up on a journey to find a reversal. Love the lifesize foot piano scene.


Fun movie. I saw this quite a few times when I was a kid.

Love this

My mom let us watch this and it was super funny. I want to live in his apartment. It was awesome.

Stood the test of time!

Showed this to my 9 and 6 year old boys last night. Forgot about the one f-bomb (oops!), but otherwise I was comfortable with it. It was amusing to see what my kids "got" and what surprised them. They were totally shocked at the smoking in the workplace...and that was less than 20 years ago!


I agree with ejk that it's a much different experience watching this as an adult. I was a fan of this growing up, but I probably didn't get about 75% of the jokes. Why did my mom think his white tuxedo at the corporate party was so funny? Now that I'm older, it's enjoyable on a whole other level!


This movie was great. It's a different perspective to watch as a child and then as an adult. It's always a fun watching experience with this movie.

great movie

I loved this movie growing up and it was so fun sharing it with my kids. I have to admit it was different watching it as a parent than as a kid. But Tom Hanks still delivers a great performance.
