A boy obsessed with 50s Sci-Fi movies about aliens has a recurring dream about a blueprint of some kind, which he draws to his inventor friend. With the help of a third kid, they follow it and build themselves a spaceship. Now what?
The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
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

You will fall in love with Harry and wish that Bigfoot / Sasquatch was real. A funny, endearing movie!

This movie is a family favorite!
