Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Josh is discussing his electronic comic idea with Susan, the slice of pizza in the middle of the table has its crust facing the camera in the first shot, then it moves 90 degrees around the plate.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Josh and MacMillan are on the giant piano, the crowd behind them changes a lot between shots, e.g. a young girl in the background is seen to sit on her dad's lap twice. Also, the boy in the sweater disappears, then reappears in time to applaud at the end of the song.
  • The musical version of "Big" opened at the Shubert Theater on April 28, 1996, ran for 193 performances and was nominated for the 1996 Tony Awards for the Best Original Book and Score.
  • To give star Tom Hanks an idea of how a 12 year-old would behave, director Penny Marshall filmed each "grown-up" scene with David Moscow (Young Josh) playing Tom Hanks's part, who then copied David Moscow's behavior.
