Welcome to the debut episode of Movies My Friends Have Never Seen, the podcast where I, Nick Nadel, am joined by a friend to watch and discuss the one movie that everyone is SHOCKED that they have never seen.
To kick things off, please welcome friend and pop culture blogger Matthew Buntley, who will be watching the little-known 1988 Tom Hanks vehicle Big for the first time.
Will Matthew fall in love with the story of a young boy who makes a wish on a demonic fortune telling machine and turns into a grown-up overnight? Will he think it's a fun comedy classic for the entire family, or a searing portrait of a suburban New Jersey family torn apart by a phony kidnapping plot? And what will he think of the famous "dancing on a piano in FAO Schwarz" scene now that he's seen it in context? Click that play button and find out!
Music: "Hot in the City" by Billy Idol. You might remember this song from the scene where grown-up Josh (Tom Hanks) goes wild in the back of a limo.
