Quotes

Jane: Professor Henry, did you see? The yeti is alright. We made friends with him. He's sweet and gentle. We're not in any danger now.
Prof. Wassermann: I know, I can see that, Jane. He's adopted you as his family. He's mistaken Herbie for his son and maybe you for his wife.
Cliff Chandler: She might have some duties to fulfill when she stays here tonight.
[Jane gasps in shock]

Fun Fun Fun! He won't hurt you (Not the Yeti!)
4 May 2005 | by (Ringside) – See all my reviews

Others have said it already, but this is definitely one to check out. I bought an English version of this from some guy in Brazil (subtitled in Portuguese), but I saw it several times before on Saturday afternoon TV (Captain USA really did it up when he showed this -- even singing the Yeti song during the breaks!) My favorite things about Yeti:

He looks like a hippie -- coincidence?

He keeps changing in size -- hanging under the helicopter, he appears to be about 10 feet tall. Later, laying on his back in the warehouse, his foot is about 10 feet long!

Great movie line -- listen for the background extra during the Toronto rampage scene who yells, "Look out! He's got a tree!"

It turns into a crime movie -- honestly, I never saw it coming.

So check this one out -- you'll never look at fish bones without thinking of the Yeti!
