Big – MMU 78

In this episode, Val, Tracy, and Jake are discussing the classic, somewhat magical Big, starring Tom Hanks. There are a lot of movies that fit in this genre of body swapping or magically aging movies, but Big may be the most classic and maybe even the best.

But why does it work so well? Join our trio as they discuss how this film works, why it works, and why Tom Hanks is amazing. Its seems like he can play literally any role, maybe even better than anyone else.

We also talk about how this is the second Penny Marshall film starring Tom Hanks that we have discussed on our show. Is there something there? This duo just seems to work.
