Product Description

Amazon.ca

This cute movie by William Dear stars John Lithgow as a family man who befriends a Sasquatch (a.k.a. Bigfoot) and brings the friendly monster's oversized, hairy self into his Seattle home. Mayhem and comedy ensue, but things take a heavier turn when a hunter (David Suchet) gets on the creature's trail. Everything hinges on the relationship between Lithgow's character and Harry (the Sasquatch), and that relationship is really quite effective and touching. Don Ameche is a hoot as an old guy who has dreamed of meeting Bigfoot all his life and finally gets the glorious chance. --Tom Keogh

Format:VHS Tape
HARRY AND THE HENDERSONS is a cross between a cryptozoologist's, X-FILESs, dream film and a Hallmark special off Lifetime. It is THE FAMILY MAN meets THE MOTHMAN. And, if you like big, harry sasquatches and functional, happy families that take them in, well this is the flick for you.

This family film has E.T. written all over it. You've got cute, loveable kids and a furry, caring, mythical creature. The parents just don't know what to do when they slam into the sasquatch while driving through the forest on vacation and apparently kill him in his Bigfoot tracks. However, when they strap the creature to the car-roof to drive him to a local fairy-tale vet's office, he turns out to be not only fictitious, but also very much alive. The rollicking tale and fun that follows can only be stopped by, you guessed it, a Bigfoot hunter with the wrong motivation in mind.
All kidding aside, I loved this flick when I was a kid. We had a VHS copy of the film, and my brothers and I wore it out something nuts. HARRY AND THE HENDERSONS is a family film. It's great for children and people who have yet to accept the fact that unicorns, Bigfeet and the Loch Ness Monster are "pretend." Meanwhile, you and your friends might enjoy picking this monster up from video stores on a rainy night when you just feeling like laughing at extreme silliness. I mean, c'mon guys, we're talking about some folks that run over a sasquatch and take it back to suburbia where it becomes a part of the family. If that won't make you laugh, I just don't know what will. I'm laughing just thinking about it. The part when Harry gets into the car and his head makes the roof bulge up, because he's so tall and big and strong..... golly that's just the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best movie ever made March 12 2003
By Ashlee
Format:VHS Tape
Harry and the Hendersons is the best movie that was ever made. I am only 16 years old but I know a good movie when I see it. I used to watch Harry and the Hendersons every day when i was a little girl and I loved it. I always used to wish that I had a friend like Harry to protect me and have fun with. After I watched that movie, I would literally go outside and see if there was a "Harry" out there waiting for me. For a movie like Harry and the Hendersons to touch a person like it did when I was little is amazing. It isn't until now that I know that the movie is still for sale and I plan to buy another copy because my first copy of the movie broke. There will never be a movie like this one. Harry and the Hendersons is the best movie ever made and nothing else will ever be able to compare to it.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a Cute Movie! It Should Be on DVD! Jan. 27 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I saw Harry and The Hendersons in a movie theater and I thought it was a cute movie. John Lithgow and the rest of the cast were really good and I think this a nice movie for the whole family. It is about a family who discovers and befriends a sasquatch (Bigfoot) who they name Harry. Lookout for David Suchet (Poirot) as a unscrupulous hunter out to bag Bigfoot. I saw this movie long before I started watching Poirot and I didn't know who David Suchet was back then but he did a good job playing the villain. I recommend this movie and I think it should be put out on DVD (Widescreen).

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny funny movie! May 12 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I love this film. Its part of the magic "trio" of cult classic films: including "Kazaam" and "Ghost dad."
This movie is about a family who is visited by big foot. The acting in this movie is amazing! The charcters responded so realisticly.
I know this is supposed to be a comedy, but the actors responded so realistcly to having a big foot living in their house. Thats the way I would have acted if it was really happening to me.
Well, not much can be said about this movie. It basicly speakes for it itself.
ENJOY

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful "family" Movie Nov. 11 2003
By Pneuma
Format:VHS Tape
This was my mother's favorite movie, she fell in love with it. I finally watched this movie after she passed away, I have to admit it is a great movie and I can see what my mother liked about it, it was cute and is good for kids of all ages, great family movie. The only dissapointment is not even the movie itself, it is the studio who to date has not put this movie out on DVD. Hopefully it will be soon. I give this movie five stars as my mom would it gave it five! It is a great movie, very cute!!

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Harry and the Hendersons. Enough said.
Nicely restored. Nice features (outtakes, making-of) plus the incredible cast who made this great in spite of some extremely sentimental suckage. Beautiful job.

5.0 out of 5 stars HILARIOUS
Harry is a big humongous bigfoot but he is not scary at all! He is funny and nice and his smile is the best smile for a bigfoot.
