Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: 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.
One of my favorite 80’s movie!
I still remember walking into West Coast Video store and seeing this cardboard cutout. This movie was so funny I rented it twice and now thanks to iTunes I can buy it and watch it all over again and laugh
Great movie for older kids and adults
I saw this again for the first time in a very long time and was pleasantly surprised. Very entertaining, funny, and heart warming. I would not recommend this for very young children, as there is quite a bit of foul language used in humorous situations. Some of the scenes with Harry, etc may be intense or scary, but overall he is a gentle and lovable beast.
Rick Baker was and always will be one of the best creature effects/makeup artists in the movie business and is such a refreshing relief in a world full of films dominated by CGI.
Didn't Remember the Profanity
I really like this movie and I remember watching it when I was younger. Turns out, you might want to reconsider before sitting down with your own kids to watch this movie. There is quite a bit of profanity that I did not recall being a problem when I watched it many years before. Just something to consider before bundling up on the couch with your kiddos for a family movie (age dependent). Adults and children use profanity in this movie, we had to stop watching about 10 mins into it.
