Identical twins, separated at birth and each raised by one of their biological parents, discover each other for the first time at summer camp and make a plan to bring their wayward parents back together.
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". Written by
In one scene, John Lithgow's character complains to his wife, portrayed by Melinda Dillon, that as a boy when he asked for artist's paints for Christmas that his dad gave him a BB gun. This is clearly a send off to 1983's A Christmas Story, where the lead character Ralphie's quest was to receive a BB gun for Christmas. Melinda Dillon played Ralphie's mom. See more »

[Pins LaFleur against his car]
Listen to me. You're wrong. I was like you! I almost killed him myself. But it would've been murder. He's not an animal!
He's our friend!
Dr. Wallace Wrightwood:
For God's sake, Jacques-o, open your eyes.
Are you people out of your minds? You think I'm going to stop now? I'm going to kill him.
[Begins slamming LaFleur against the car]
You're not gonna kill him! You're not gonna hurt him! I won't let you! I'll kill you first...

Shots of George sketching in his pad are played over the end credits, inter-cut with memorable scenes from the film playing out in sketch animation form - as though George is sketching memories of their time with Harry. See more »
It's hard to find a good "all around" family movie. If it's something the kid will like, best bet, the parents will hate it. And if it's something mom and dad like, the kids will hate it. Harry and the Hendersons is one of the few family movies that the entire family enjoys! With a PG rating, the movie has just enough action, drama, suspense, and comedy to keep each member of the family interested. An interesting fact: The only character who curses in the entire film is the little boy? Except for hearing the word sh*t two or three times, the rest of the movie is clean for the whole family to enjoy.
