Returning from a hunting trip in the forest, the Henderson family's car hits an animal in the road. At first they fear it was a man, but when they examine the "body" they find it's a "bigfoot". They think it's dead so they decide to take it home (there could be some money in this..). As you guessed, "it" isn't dead. Far from being the ferocious monster they fear "Harry" to be, he's a friendly giant. In their attempts to keep Harry a secret, the Henderson's have to hide him from the authorities and a man, who has made it his goal in life, to catch a "bigfoot"

"Re-watch - July 30th 1987 re-watch double feature It seems like I might have watched this on TV a few times back in the 80s, but I definitely remember this and the above film being ones my dad took my sister & I to see on the big screen. So it's probably safe to say it's been even longer since I last watched this one. If *batteries not included is ridiculous, this film makes it seem plausible by comparison. I'll concede that Harry & the Hendersons is entertaining and has a decent message about"
