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".

Best bet for family viewing. It will make you want to go out and hug a tree.
This is a great film for the entire family to view together. Can be enjoyed by all ages, top notch family film, John Lithgow is terrific, as usual. David Suchet is great - and funny - as the bad guy. Harry the Bigfood is as lovable as Chewbacca.
