Synopsis

Josh Baskin is sick of being an awkward kid. At a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine to become big. To his shock, his wish is granted. After an understandably awkward beginning, Josh is forced to do ˜adult' things like getting a job and a girlfriend. However, in the end, Josh realizes he should return to being a kid. He manages to find the Zoltar machine, who grants his wish and Josh is able to return to his mom and dad.
