Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: For any other full-grown actors who try their hands at fidgeting, squirming, throwing water balloons and wolfing down food in a huge variety of comically disgusting ways, this really is the performance to beat. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Aug 11, 2014

Fresh: A delightful comedy-fantasy. – Gerald Clarke, TIME Magazine, Aug 2, 2013

Fresh: Unspools with enjoyable genuineness and ingenuity. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Big, which has been directed by Penny Marshall with verve and impeccable judgment, drops a child's innocence into the corporate rat race as if it were a depth charge. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Aug 11, 2014
