Tense, economical and gripping. It was so good I didn’t even notice the bombastic Hans Zimmer score until the closing credits.

Rating: Very good (3)

A Look Back: "Big"

I imagine after “Big” came out in 1988, FAO Schwarz had to put up a sign instructing patrons who wanted to imitate the dance Tom Hanks and his boss do on the walkable floor keyboard, “No ‘Chopsticks.'”  Kind of like the sign in the guitar shop in “Wayne’s World,” that said, “No ‘Stairway to Heaven.'”  In the movie  “Big,” it takes them only a few seconds to coordinate their moves and perform an impromptu rendition of “Chopsticks,” although I’m sure it took them far longer to get it down pat in real life. 596 more words
