No Man’s Land: Big (1988)

Hoezo in Kino

The late 80’s and early 90’s saw a great triple directorial run for Penny Marshall with BigAwakenings and A League of Their Own. The former is a great spin on the ‘coming of age/body swap’ flick where a twelve year old (played by Tom “please run for president” Hanks) finds himself waking up in a grown up bodily state. Hanks is just perfect for the role and Marshall omits a classic 80’s villain from the story (written by Steven’s sister, Anne Spielberg) to let the premisse take its natural course. The result is a heartwarming, lighthearted film about the trappings of adulthood and keeping your inner child alive – preferably by light-up piano dancing with Robert Loggia.

After a wish turns 12-year-old Josh Baskin (David Moscow) into a 30-year-old man (Tom Hanks), he heads to New York City and gets a low-level job at MacMillen Toy Company. A chance encounter with the owner (Robert Loggia) of the company leads to a promotion testing new toys. Soon a fellow employee, Susan Lawrence (Elizabeth Perkins), takes a romantic interest in Josh. However, the pressure of living as an adult begins to overwhelm him, and he longs to return to his simple, former life as a boy.
