Being a teenager isn't easy for Josh Baskin who is tired of being too small to do things. Everything changes when he finds a Zoltar machine at a nearby fair and makes a wish to be big. With his wish being granted, Josh finds that he has to navigate the world of adulthood which he tries to do with his best friend, Billy. But with learning the ins and outs of "adulting", will Josh want to be a kid again? Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching "Big".

· Josh finds the Zoltar machine at the local fair. The machine is originally turned off, dark and not moving. When Josh starts to hit the machine, Zoltar starts to move and opens his mouth. In the farther, right-side view of Josh, the machine is back to being still. It's moving again in the next view.

· An adult Josh finds Billy in the sports equipment room at school. During the exchange, as Josh is trying to convince Billy who he is, the strap on the chest guard that's laying on top of the storage box is originally dangling off the side. A moment later, the strap is back on top of the vest. The scene cuts again and the vest's strap is dangling off the side once more.

· Josh and Billy are shown the hotel room by the front desk person. When the door opens, there is only a square notice on the back of the door. It's still there when Billy leaves for the night. When Josh locks the door, there is now a red oval shaped sticker on the back under the square notice.

"Big" (1988) stars Tom Hanks, Elizabeth Perkins, Robert Loggia, John Heard, Jared Rushton, David Moscow, Jon Lovitz and Mercedes Ruehl. It runs 104 minutes and is rated PG for language and frightening / intense scenes.
