A boy obsessed with 50s sci-fi movies about aliens has a recurring dream about a blueprint of some kind, which he draws for his inventor friend. With the help of a third kid, they follow it and build themselves a spaceship. Now what?
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

Best bet for family viewing. It will make you want to go out and hug a tree.
This is a great film for the entire family to view together. Can be enjoyed by all ages, top notch family film, John Lithgow is terrific, as usual. David Suchet is great - and funny - as the bad guy. Harry the Bigfood is as lovable as Chewbacca.
