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.

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.
