About the Film:
More than anything else, 13-year old Josh wants to be "big". That's the wish he makes at an odd-looking amusement pier fortunetelling machine. The next morning, Josh wakes up-only to discover that he's grown to manhood overnight! He's now Tom Hanks.
Still a 13-year-old mentally and emotionally, Josh decides to hide out in New York City until he can figure out what to do next. He lucks into a job with a major toy company run by kid-at-heart McMillan (Robert Loggia). Elizabeth Perkins also stars and Penny Marshall directs this 1988 classic comedy.
