Big

We can thank Tom Hanks for starring in more than one feel-good film over the course of his career. In 1988’s Big , he plays Josh Baskin — a teen who makes a wish to be bigger after he’s embarrassed by being too short to go on a carnival ride. When Josh wakes up the next day, he is indeed bigger. However, he’s not just taller. He’s also unexpectedly aged and is now a 30-year-old adult. Although he initially enjoys the freedom that comes along with being a grown-up, you’ll appreciate what he ends up learning when it comes to appreciating who you are at each stage in your life.
