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. Far from being the ferocious monster they fear “Harry” to be, he’s a friendly giant.

Bigfoot is real and he is taken to live with a family in this family comedy that feels like a one-sentence fun idea dragged into one hour and a half. The Bigfoot has a great facial mimic, but this is harmless and boring stuff. Only David Suchet as an evil hunter is worth seeing while John Lithgow makes one of his worst roles in life being the over-the-top family father.
