      Eric Henderson Slant Magazine Just as Mac and Me eventually devolved into a feature-length commercial for McDonald's, Harry and the Hendersons eventually emerges as a vegetarian screed. Rated: 2/4 Apr 29, 2007 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...an amiable comedy that benefits substantially from the stellar work of its various performers... Rated: 3/4 Nov 3, 2021 Full Review Ángel Luis Inurria El Pais (Spain) The movie feels heavy and repetitive. [Full Review in Spanish] Jun 15, 2020 Full Review Eve Tushnet Patheos There's some interesting gender stuff: The dad, who works at his own father's gun dealership, is all camo-sports-masculinity, but turns out to be hiding a talent for tender artistry which the events of the film vindicate... Mar 26, 2020 Full Review Cathy Burke United Press International While E.T. had tears to spare for everyone in the family, Harry and the Hendersons is strictly for the kids.

      Dimitrios B It was okay, not terrible but it wasn't super good, would recommend Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/09/24 Full Review Crystal F A super cute family movie with a new take on the idea of bigfoot. The acting by John Lithgow and Don Ameche is incredible. Harry starts out kinda scary but is really so lovable and endearing! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/30/23 Full Review The M honestly a really great movie one of bigfoots best. not 100% accurate but defiantly entertaining. Worth a watch Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/22/23 Full Review PowerGlover A fantastic movie that should be celebrated. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/27/23 Full Review Mason S I have always LOVED this film! Such fun. Such good messages. Charming, touching and hilarious. 💯❤️ Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Crystal M Family classic! And with all the recent bigfoot sightings, it's a great reminder of reasons to NOT kill bigfoot. Take pics and video if you see one, OR if you are fully licensed, maybe tranquilize him/her if need be (like we did when Bruno the bear was trying to cross into st. Louis). :) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/01/23 Full Review Read all reviews
