The Bigfoot creature is INCREDIBLY authentic-looking, and pulls off a remarkably wide range of facial expressions that help lend to his believability, lovability, and humor. Frankly, I think if the creature had not been so well executed, the movie would not be so great. I hope there is a "making-of" featurette on this DVD that shows how they made this character (it's a Special Edition, there's gotta be!).
I can watch this film again and again. I think it truly is a classic. Movies like this are few and far between.
A touching, entertaining and hilarious comedy from producer Steven Spielburg co-stars Don Amech and M. Emmet Walsh that offers good laughs and incredible puppetry and make-up effects for it's time that nearly rivals CGI as the beast himself is very convicing and realistic. The acting is very good and there is a heartbreaking moment guaranteed to make you cry, i remembered when i was 5 in the summer of 1987 seeing this moive on the big screen and loved it, this is a must see movie for the whole family and kids & adults alike.
The DVD has excellent picture and sound with some good extras like audio commentary by director William Dear, theatrical trailer, deleted scenes, two featurettes and behind the scenes with "Making of Harry and The Hendersons".
"When you can't believe your eyes, trust your Heart",
this played with the cover of the book just tugs at your heart just giving you a good filling, I think it's a good line to follow.
While some parts of this movie can be unrealistic, it is about bigfoot, so that should be expected.
Still it is a good family movie, light and fun, and with a decent message. I'd recommend this for 8 years and up though.
