The #1 Sasquatch Movie of All Time!

Finally! A movie that has EVERYTHING one could ask for in a movie. I would describe this movie as Harry and the Hendersons meets Teen Wolf meets White Men Cant Jump. What is so great about this movie, is that it is actually based on a true story. I looked it up on the internet, and sure enough, it is valid. Personally, I would have chosen a different actor for the role of Ed, the Sasquatch. Although Trevor Jones did an OK job, I feel the role lacked in someone who could really bring the character to life. I was thinking perhaps George Wendt, Kieran Culkin, or Fran Drescher would fit the role a little better. I am also not a fan of Richard Thomas. For some reason, every time I would watch the Waltons, I would get bad gas. Although my gas was not present while watching this movie (even after eating nachos), it still brings up embarrassing memories of my past. I always thought Wally and the Beav could have kicked John Boys butt anyways. The movie is really one for the ages. It really hit home in many ways. I too did not have many friends when I was a kid. I did everything I could to fit in. Unfortunately, unlike this movie, I did not have a Sasquatch (or the Himilayan counterpart, the Yeti) to help make friends. To be honest, I still really don't have any friends. People used to set bags of dog poop on fire and set them on my porch. I usually have to pay various strippers and prostitutes to even talk to me. I supposed if any fabled hairy mountain creature would have befriended me, I would not be such a loser and sit here online at 3am on a Wednesday night making comments on IMDb about movies really aimed for people 2/3 my age. In any case, I did enjoy Big and Hairy. I do admit, I originally purchased it because after seeing the title, I thought it was a porno. So at first it was disappointing, but after the 7th time watching it, I do find it to be a fantastic movie.
