In the party scene, Josh tries caviar, which he hates. He spits it out & wipes his tongue with a napkin. In You've Got Mail (1998), Tom Hanks responds to Meg Ryans comment "that caviar is a garnish!" by scooping up all the remaining caviar for himself. See more »
Big Josh hands the baby his wallet while she is in the playpen, yet when he picks her up, it is no longer in the playpen with her. See more »
All he said was he didn't get it.
"I don't get it." "I don't get it". "Let's make it a bug".

I don't even dare to guess how many times I've seen "Big" but if you ask me to watch it with you I'll be glad to join you anytime. Still, after hugely successful smash hits like "Forrest Gump", "Saving Private Ryan" and "The Green mile" this remains to be one of Tom Hanks' greatest movies ever. Not only that but it's definitely one of the funniest films of the 80's. It's timeless, entertaining, moving, splendidly written and stylishly directed classic. If you haven't seen this marvelous 14 year old first rate comedy try to find it out as fast as you can. Tom Hanks is spectacular!
