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"

Movie Reviews (1001-1050) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: The Bigfoot has a great facial mimic in a time when computer effects was non-existent and creatures were made by puppets and hands. It is pretty harmless stuff for the entire family with the exception of a little threat by David Suchet as an evil hunter. The Downs: Typhical comedy where humorous situations are made out of having someone that are in a new life situation and as a "fish out of water". John Lithgow is especially annoying and terribly over-the-top as funny laughing family"
