Week 4 EOC: Meaning of the movie Big
The movie Big is about a boy who is often picked on. He makes a wish to be big and wakes up as a grown man. He is then forced to do adult things like working. He lands a job for a major toy company where he does boring computer office work. Because he is a kid at heart, he has a different way of working than his adult coworkers. The president of the company quickly notices this. One day the boy goes into the toy store and is discovered by the president playing with all of the toys. The president is impressed by his interest in the company and love of toys and ends up promoting him to a really high position in the company. The meaning behind this whole story is simple. You should pursue the things you are genuinely interested in. One should immerse themselves in their chosen profession if they want to excel and reach their highest potential. By spending his free time in the toy store in which he worked, the boy grabbed hold of an amazing opportunity that he would have never had by sitting at home being idle.
