Summary
Josh is a 12-year-old who makes a wish from an old machine to be big. Not really believing it will work, Josh is very surprised to find himself BIG the next morning. Now he looks like a 30 year old guy, but he still behaves like a boy. He decides to go with his best friend to New York and try to find the machine that can fix his wish. In New York he gets a job in a toy company and develops a romantic crush on a beautiful woman. Now Josh must learn to get used to the adult world he always wanted to be part of
