After reading the book and finding it funny, interesting, and even a little touching I had to check out the film version. Things are shortened, changed a little here and there and especially the ending... it keeps most of the important stuff intact but does lose some important bits. Overall an enjoyable film but I suggest one should read the book.
Hollywood seldom makes films as charming as this anymore, Jimmy Stewart is his usual endearing self in this slightly odd comedy film. Left me feeling warm and happy and wanting a friend like Harvey. Worth viewing again and again over the years.
I saw the first in theaters and it was BORING, no interesting characters or story, lame action and plain dumb big budget action mess. Well now it has Will Smith's homosexual offspring in it so it's guaranteed to be half as good as the terrible original.
