I don't think there is a single person out there who doesn't like at least one Tom Hanks film. Hanks is an acting hero to many, with his career spanning across multiple generations thanks to the inclusion of his voice in the Toy Story franchise, his portrayal of the iconic Forrest Gump, his starring role as Josh in Big, and so many more memorable roles.
To hone in on Big, watching a man-sized child working in a toy store is extremely fun, with a lot of the laughs from the movie coming from Hank's physical comedy. The way he is able to change his whole body to represent that of a young boy is really something to be seen. The film also has a strong message of the love we have for our family, and what better time to remember that than at Christmas.
Big broke cinema records when it became the first female-directed film to gross over $1 million dollars at the box office - Penny Marshall in the director's chair here.
In 2014, it was announced that the movie would be adapted into a TV series, but that show never got past the script for the pilot episode.
