    I love this show but there are some brief scenes that show a woman in her lingerie and suggest sexual things.

    The concept was brilliant and that made the movie fun.

    Great movie, but has some inuendo that may not be appropriate for kids. Still, a classic in my book. Tom Hanks in the early days, and just as good as ever.

    This is one of those movies that I could watch and thoroughly enjoy over and over again.
    For me, the best part about watching Big is that it's like a soft voice, calling the viewers back, begging us to remember the joyful, magical, carefree feeling of being a child again. And who wouldn't want that ...even just for a moment or two?... See Full Review
