What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that of if Big were released today, it would almost certainly earn a PG-13 rating. There's some strong language (including one use of "f--k") and some sexual situations (including a man fondling a woman's breast). There's also some drinking, smoking, and mild violence.
