Tom Hanks Shines in his First Oscar®-nominated Performance
Arrives on Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack December 10


Featuring Collectible Sound Chip Packaging That Plays “Heart & Soul”


Two-time Oscar® Winner Tom Hanks* received his first Best Actor Nomination for his disarming turn as a 12-year-old man-child in Penny Marshall’s timeless, “hilarious” (Newsweek) delight. Tired of being a kid, Josh Baskin wishes he was big. When he wakes up the next day, he’s an adult! Now, Josh must hold down a job – and please a new boss (Robert Loggia). Tougher still, he must convince his best friend that he’s still himself, and explain to a beautiful woman (Elizabeth Perkins) who falls for him, that he’s not. Soon, Josh just wants to be a kid again, but can he? As exhilarating as it was during its acclaimed debut, the “warmhearted” (The Washington PostBig is available as a Blu-ray + DVD combo pack!

This appears to be the same bonus content that was on the 2007 DVD.

I believe the "audio documentary" is essentially a commentary with Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg.

The Blu-ray does not have the trailers and TV spots from the DVD either.

The release doesn't clarify this, but I think that like the DVD, they are carrying both the theatrical and extended cuts on the Blu-ray.


I think the one new idea with this release, other than calling it a 25th Anniversary Edition, is that we will now have a good HD transfer, assuming that they didn't just use the one that was made around the time of the 2007 disc.

Just a guess on my part, but my assumption was that this is the exact same disc as the previous release, just packaged with a DVD this time around.

And different packaging. The bonus features as listed are definitely the same as the Blu-ray disc I reviewed some years ago.
