The 50 Best New York City Movies

30. Big (1988)

Director: Penny Marshall
Leading Actors: Tom Hanks, Elizabeth Perkins, Robert Loggia
NYC Neighborhoods Featured: East Village, Washington Heights, Times Square, Fort Lee, New Jersey

Inspiring millions of kids to, well, act like kids, not to mention probably doubling FAO Schwarz's stock for the next few decades, Big also contains one of the most disgustingly charming performances from Hollywood's most famous nice guy. It's a Tom Hanks vehicle about innocence and trampolines—trampolines, mind you, that sat somewhere in the office where Complex lives and works—that takes the steam out of being a kid and an adult both. —GT
