>BIG Tom Hanks provides the most inspired fun around by revealing the titillation and terror of a 12-year-old boy inside a man's body. Summer comedies come and go; this one's a keeper. Paging Oscar.

BIG BUSINESS As two sets of identical twins mismatched at birth, Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin double your pleasure with terrific comedy teamwork. Encore. Encore.

RIKKY AND PETE A brother and sister, played by Stephen Kearney and Nina Landis, leave their home in Australia when Brother's weirdo gadgets get them in dutch with the police. A charmer that sneaks up on you.

BEETLE JUICE This sometimes out-of-control farce is saved by Michael Keaton's inspired comic lunacy as a bio-exorcist who helps a family of ghosts rid their house of humans.
