“Magic isn’t a defense you can use in court,” Darren Criss cries in the shower, as he should.
In this Funny Or Die remake of the Tom Hanks classic Big, Evan Rachel Wood goes from being a 13-year-old to an adult overnight.
Remember the 1988 film “Big” starring Tom Hanks as a young boy who becomes an adult overnight, thus pushed into world of what it means to be a 30-year-old man in New York City?
Funny or Die amped it up a notch with a trailer parody for “Big,” starring Evan Rachel Wood in Hanks’ role.
Darren Criss also stars as a man who falls for the pseudo-adult woman, then becomes plagued with the threat of jail time for getting naughty with a minor (sort of?)
The Original “Big” with Tom Hanks:
Big is a 1988 American fantasy comedy film directed by Penny Marshall, and stars Tom Hanks as Josh Baskin, a young boy who makes a wish “to be big” and is then aged to adulthood overnight. The film also stars Elizabeth Perkins,John Heard, and Robert Loggia and was written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg.
Josh Baskin is a 12-year-old boy living in Cliffside Park, New Jersey, who, after being told he is too short for a carnival ride while attempting to impress an older girl, puts a coin into an unusual antique arcade fortune teller machine called Zoltar Speaks, and makes a wish to be “big.” Zoltar dispenses a card stating “Your wish has been granted”, but Josh is spooked to see the Zoltar machine has been unplugged the entire time.
The next morning, Josh has been transformed into a 30-year-old man, and when he goes back to the plaza with the fortune teller machine, he finds that the carnival, with the machine, has moved on. Returning home, Josh tries to explain his predicament to his mother, who refuses to listen, thinking he is a stranger who kidnapped her son. Fleeing from her, Josh then finds his best friend, Billy Kopecki, and convinces him of his identity by singing a song that only the two of them know. With Billy’s help, he learns that it will take a couple of months to find the Zoltar Speaks machine, so Josh rents a flophouse room in New York City and obtains a job as a data entry clerk at MacMillan Toy Company.
