    You can get it cheaper. I got it for $16 in a 2-pack with Mrs. Doubtfire.

    Be careful-a lot the stores that have it cheap (Target, Wal-Mart) have the full screen version only.

    PQ is what you'd expect for an older Fox release-not bad, but not awesome. I love the movie, so to me it's worth it.

    I am stuck with an unopened FS version of Big. Anyone have any ideas how to get it replaced with WS?

    Rbirk, take it to a store that doesn't make you have receipts for exchanges. Wal-Mart and Best Buy work. Toy 'R' Us works if they carry many DVDs in your area.

    If you have a Borders near you, go there. They'll accept exchanges without a receipt as long as they've carried the product within the past two years.

    The transfer on this is non-anamorphic and absolutely horrible.

    I thought Fox hinted about a Big: SE in a previous chat.

    Oh, please, give us a BIG: SE. It's one of my favorite movies and the DVD is terrible.

    This is one of Tom Hanks' best movies. [​IMG] I like him more in comedies than in drama.

    I'll wait for an anamorphic version.

    This one definitely deserves a new SE immediately. This was a childhood favorite of mine and is an 80's classic. I have the current disc and it is definitely better than nothing and I recommend picking it up if you are a fan of the movie.

    "Big" was on HBO-HDTV not long ago & the picture quality was quite good. This means a nice hi-def master exists.
