Cute story about Sasquatch, Richard Thomas is a scream as the dad
19 October 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Picasso, a middle school child of two artists, has just moved to an island in the northwest with his folks. He's unhappy that he can not seem to make friends, even when he joins the basketball team. His parents are sympathetic but try to reassure him that he will learn to fit in. Dad (Richard Thomas) is an artist working for the island's big company, a lawn ornament manufacturing plant. The plant's owner, a big basketball nut, comes to all of the middle school games. If the team loses, he goes ballistic. Picasso misses some free throws in an early season game that sends the team to the showers and diminishes his chances of making friends even more. However, Picasso meets "Ed", a Sasquatch youngster in the woods and arranges for him to play basketball with the team. With a great height and natural skill, Ed wins many games for the team. But, does Ed miss his folks and natural habitat? And, is it ethical for a different species to play with middle school boys? This is a fun, fantasy movie for children. Ed is a delight and charms in a big way. Thomas is just flat-out hilarious as the wild-haired, unconventional dad. All of the supporting cast, including Donnelly Rhodes as the plant owner, are inspired. Let's make it dittos for the storyline and sets. Do you wish to show your kids a good, clean time on a night with the family? Big and Hairy is a bigtime bonanza.
