In the all-new Funny or Die video below, Evan Rachel Wood (Across The Universe) and Darren Criss (GLEE, Broadway's 'How to Succeed in Business) star in a remake of BIG, showing what the film might have been like with a female lead instead of Tom Hanks. Check out the hilarious clip below!

The 1988 comedy BIG was directed by Penny Marshall, and starred 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.

In 1996, Big was made into a musical for the Broadway stage. It featured music by David Shire, lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr., and a book by John Weidman. Directed by Mike Ockrent, and choreographed by Susan Stroman, it opened on April 28, 1996 and closed on October 13, 1996, after 193 performances.
