I bought this American blu-ray on the chance it might be region free. Thankfully this played without any problems in my UK blu-ray player.

The picture quality is excellent and a definite improvement over my R2 DVD. Also, there are some featurettes included which are quite interesting. Also, the upgrade to a DTS HD Master 5.1 audio track was very noticeable.

If you're a fan of this film then this is the version to buy!

a wonderful film with a very modern message. protect our environment & those creatures who live in it.

Don't hunt creatures just for the sake of having a gun and the right to use it.

Think before you act, you may hurt someone or something who will suffer for your actions.

The extras add so much to this film. I wish this addition had been available in the UK without importing.

This is a happy, feel-good movie. Just the very talented John Lithgow and crew doing a wonderful job of making a movie that all the family can enjoy. This movie "cured" my son's fear of bears and Big Foot(Feet?); both he was sure were going to get him at night, in bed, in the dark. We got tired of people "losing" it after borrowing it at our local library (if you get my meaning) and decided to just treat ourselves to a copy we don't have to return within a week!

Btw, is there any movie/play Lithgow HASN'T been brilliant in?

As a child i remember watching this film all the time, it was one of my favourites. So when i saw it was on TV a few weeks ago, i decided to watch it. To my surprise i sat through the whole film and absolutely loved it! So i straight away came on Amazon and bought it.
It is a classic for all the family and everyone will love it no matter what there age. it is hilarious, moving and Bigfoot still looks fantastic.
I usually like to buy the more action packed violent movie, but this was truly irresistable.
Go on, give it a go.

I took my niece to see this when it came out in the 80s and she was about 7 years old. Absolutely loved it, both of us. I noticed that it was on TV over Christmas and my wife said that she had never seen it, so we watched it together. I loved it as much as ever and my wife hardly stopped laughing from the first appearance of Harry. She said that there was no point buying the DVD now that she had seen it. It wouldn't be as good the second time. So of course I bought it and she was wrong; she laughed just as much the second time. This will be a film that we are going to watch over and over and when my niece visits (now in her thirties) we'll have a special screening.
There has been some criticism of the 'bad language' and needing to be aware of it when showing the film to children. Both times I watched this I was unaware of anything offensive and there is plenty elsewhere that I do find offensive. I feel that some parents are over-protective and it doesn't help their children in learning to relate to the world around them. Of course a potty-mouthed child is stomach-churningly upsetting, but children aren't stupid; they are very good, with a little guidance from parents etc, at working out for themselves what is the right way to express themselves without offending and they will hear much worse than is on this film in the streets or from other children in school. I would even say that swearing is an important part of self-expression, when used sparingly and in extremis and there could be little more extreme than having a Bigfoot wrecking your home. It surely is preferable to hear the mild language used in this film than the far more offensive expressions that we hear every day on the streets and, nowadays, in television and film.

Returning from a hunting trip in the forest, the Henderson family's car hits an animal in the road.

At first they fear its a man, but when they examine the body they find it's a Sasquatch, or Bigfoot. They think it's dead so they decide to take it home, after all there could be some money in this.

It isn't dead. Far from being the ferocious monster they fear it 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.....

During the late eighties, there were a spate of these types of movies, something out of the ordinary that invades a normal family or persons life. We had this, Short Circuit, Batteries Not Included and a few more.

When these movies were released, I was at an age where I would lap these up, and so I do really have fond memories of this film. Introducing my daughter to it yesterday was revelatory, as she lapped it up as I expected, but for me, I couldn't believe how predictable the film was and how often the same jokes were used again and again.

But it's still a fun high concept family film that doesn't rely on toilet humour to raise a laugh. Baker has done wonderful work on Harry, its still holds well today, and with his body language, it provides some genuine laughs.

The funniest scene being when George says to Harry 'how's it going?', Harry's reaction is comedy gold.

The narrative and story is something you'd expect from this sort of film, and you can see the tropes coming a mile off.
