Audience Reviews for Harry and the Hendersons

  • Oct 05, 2014
    Wildly funny, Harry and the Hendersons is a sweet and charming family comedy. While on a hunting trip George Henderson hits a big foot with his car and takes it home, but gets the surprise of his life when it turns out to still be alive. The cast is pretty good; especially John Lithgow, who does a great job at balancing the comedy with the drama. And, the make-up and design for Harry is quite impressive. Yet, the film gets a bit heavy handed with its politics. Still, the shenanigans that the Henderson family get into while dealing with a big foot living with them provides plenty of laughs. Though it has a few problems, Harry and the Hendersons is incredibly fun.

    This 80's family comedy is a passable flick and nothing more. It didn't produce a lot of laughs but it's not without it's charm.
