The idea of trading places with another person or an older/younger self to show a different perspective is archetypal by now. This is one of Hanks' earlier films and he does a very good job of portraying a kid suddenly thrust into adulthood, but it's not that easy to get a job. It's interesting to look back now at toy technology that was cutting edge at the time though.

Simply a classic. Will probably never get old.

Insipid piece of trash. Does not hold up over time at all. Tom Hanks? Big deal. Big is small. And I detested the female character who chain smokes throughout the film. What's that all about and it's a kid movie? Only bright spot is Loggia as the boss. Don't bother wasting your time.

I really recommend watching the extended version, it shows a bit more. Do not forget to watch both DISCS , the second DISC is also very good.

Has both the original theatre release version as well as an extended version. One of Tom Hanks first movies to make him a star. Really enjoyed watching it again.

It is entertaining and can be funny. I found the film to be overrated.
