A Little Taller

Big is every child’s worst nightmare, growing up. Big is the story of a 12 year who wishes he were “big,” because he feels he is too short. Maybe he should have been a little more specific, because he instead turns into a 30 year man. The situations he gets into seem questionable, but it’s done in such a charming and hilarious way that it doesn’t matter. Tom Hanks truly captures what it’s like to be a kid. Even more so when he’s in the “adult world.” There are many memorable scenes in the movie. Such as, the “floor piano scene,” “shimmy shimmy coco pop,” and “wishing on the Zoltar machine.” The result is a terrific movie with a very clear message: “Don’t grow up too fast.”
