When his parents have to go out of town, Dennis stays with Mr. and Mrs. Wilson. The little menace is driving Mr. Wilson crazy, but Dennis is just trying to be helpful. Even to the thief who's arrived in town.
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

The side of Ernie's face and the steadiness in his speech shows that Joshua Rudoy's voice was added in later when he runs to get the camera in the closet. See more »
I might be able to get you out sometime tonight, but I'm gonna need a damn good reason.
For Christ's sake, I'm talking about bagging a Sasquatch!
That'll cut a lot of ice for the judge.

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 »
I really love this movie! It's one of the best I've seen in a long time. I'm sure I'll watch it over and over. To me the best movies are movies that make you laugh and make you cry. "Harry" is a classic family show, one I'll save for the grandchildren. My children love it as much as I do. John Lithgow gives one of his many excellent performances. I also love "Third Rock".
Harry is good, too. His facial expressions are great!
It would be wonderful to see a sequel to "Harry". Something with Harry and his family hosting a human? I recommend this movie to anyone with children. It's just as good as "E.T."
