WHAT IS ABOUT?

WORTH WATCHING?

Absolutely!

This is a classic and still a good entertaining funny movie to watch.

There's not much to add, You must see it by Yourself.

I'm not sure if Tom Hanks' role deserved an Oscar Animation though. He's good as always, but can't call it anything genious. It was a well written role, and well executed of course. Although, it's always amazes me in this kind of movies that grown-up kids act much more childish, than as they were still boys.

It's kind of common actually, and "Big" goes with the same approach.


I'm not sure if I could call it "realistic" as well.
It would be probably panned by…

Knowing that it's almost impossible to find any means of housing in the city, they decide to buy a mantion outside the town. But what seems like an occasion of a life time, with time proves that it's definitely worth the little amount of money they've paid for it... or that it's worth even less. They decide to put their money into it and turn it into their dream house anyway... but will their love and relationship withstand their never ending problems? And so... will the house still stand after that? ;)


WORTH WATCHING?

Yes and No, depending on what kind of mood do You seek to get by watching the comedy.
It's pretty much sweet actually, with it's beninning, and the ending... but I do believe that the comedy's main purpose IS to give laugh…
