Professor Wassermann (John Stacy) is asked by industry magnate Morgan Hunnicut (Eddie Faye) to lead an expedition to study the giant Yeti creature found frozen in a large ice block on Newfoundland's coast. The professor does not know that Hunnicut intends to use the prehistoric creature as a trademark of its multinational industrial group. A very big mistake.

Professor Henry, did you see? The yeti is alright. We made friends with him. He's sweet and gentle. We're not in any danger now.
I know, I can see that, Jane. He's adopted you as his family. He's mistaken Herbie for his son and maybe you for his wife.
She might have some duties to fulfill when she stays here tonight.

The Yeti falls in love with the girl because she accidentally made his nipple go hard. That means that someone actually constructed a huge 'fake yeti nipple' out of plastic, with the ability to make it go hard. This film is ready to go that extra mile to be stupid.
This King Kong rip-off features giant Yeti being found in Northern Canada like a frozen ready meal and is promptly melted by a keen scientist on behalf of a multi-millionaire. The millionaire wants to exploit that Yeti for monetary gain and the scientist wants to do science type things with it.
Neither of them really think things through and they melt the thing while it's suspended from a helicopter in a cage and the next thing you know the Yeti is in a bad mood and everyone else is panicking. "Look out - he's got a tree!"
One person exclaims before the Yeti makes friends with the millionaire's niece and nephew, or at least thinks the niece is his other half due to the aforementioned nipple scene. He also gives the two of them while reserving a fish the size of a dolphin for himself.
Romance blossoms (rather one-sidedly) as the Yeti combs the nieces hair with a giant fishbone and after they heal a random gunshot wound the Yeti received, everyone becomes buddies. Except Tony Kendall who of course is a two-faced bad guy working for a rival company on the side.
Yeti should really be one of the greatest bad films ever made, but it's about twenty minutes too long and by the end I wasn't sure if it was made to be aimed at kids, due to the Yeti going mental and killing about a dozen bad guys. You've got to dig that slow-mo reunion scene at the end mind you.
The Yeti himself really looks like he has Barry Gibb's head placed on Burt Reynolds body and did an awful lot of screaming and window smashing, but not much rampaging as he was supposed to be a good guy. There's a lot of interaction between him and the kids which slows the film down, but I don't know - it's hard to hate a yeti film.
