That was under the line.
That was under the line. You said it had to be over the line on a serve.
No, I didn't.
Yeah you did. You said it had to be over the line on a serve.
No I did not, now give me the goddamn ball!

Tom Hanks is at his best -- as are the others in this wonderful movie. Manages to be lighthearted and profound at the same time. The individual scenes are funny and memorable (the boy in a man's body unabashedly devours the food at the office party, surrounded by the restrained and constrained adults), but the whole narrative works as well. Underrated by IMDb users, based on the ratings! If you haven't seen it, rent it next time you are in the mood for something fun.
