Twelve-year-old Josh (David Moscow) has no luck with the school beauty because of his diminutive stature. However, upon discovering a neglected fairground wishing machine, he wakes next morning to find himself wrapped in adult packaging (Hanks). Of all the body-swap movies, Big is by far the most successful, because Hanks offers a most appealing characterisation as the dopey innocent at large, and because it treats the situation with a little intelligence.
