Favorite movie as a kid. Who doesn't want to pet a squatch.. oh and absolutely they are real. Go to northern Ontario ,Manitoba.

Indigenous people know what's up..it's about time we embrace their culture and stop our destructive way of life with the killing of NATURE

If I were to choose just one, single word to best describe this "shaggy" comedy called Harry and the Hendersons (that's HATH, for short), that word would definitely have to be - "Cute".

Yeah. "Cute" pretty much sums up HATH to a "T".

It's plainly obvious that the audience which HATH is aimed at is, of course, children - But, what the heck - Can't a big kid at heart, like Fuzzy Wuzzy here, enjoy being entertained by this thing, too?

HATH's total appeal rests solely on the big, broad shoulders of the Harry character, who just happens to be the most adorable, and, yes, cutest Sasquatch that you're ever gonna set your peepers on.

Of course, Harry isn't particularly cute, or adorable, at first, though. No way.

To begin with, Harry is mainly a mean and ornery cuss, as only a bona fide Sasquatch (suddenly removed from his own environment) could possibly be expected to be. It's the Henderson's (especially George) who teach Harry about the rewarding benefits of cuteness and adorability, and, of course, the necessity of bathing.

This film is filled with inaccuracies. For instance they don't even mention the size 37 footprint found in the mud behind the grassy knoll.

I watched it again because of David Suchet's part, but it stands up well as a comedy with a number of different messages.

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".

George Henderson: He walked into our kitchen and was eating out of our refrigerator. I thought we was gonna eat me but he ate our daughter's corsage and then ate our goldfish!
Sergeant Mancini: And where is he now, Mr. Henderson?
George Henderson: In the bathroom.
Sergeant Mancini: Oh, of course, how stupid of me.
