Great movie night

My son is 7, he loved it and the movie kept his attention. I even laughed pretty good a few times. I'd recommend for children a bit older than 7 only because the girl/boy attraction and love, along with the mention of puberty. Nothing too extreme. It made for a great movie night.

Bigfoot is a funny movie!! I saw it on the Dove Channel app and loved it. Bigfoot himself is especially funny, I love the wacky things he does. Definitely a great, kid friendly option if you’re looking for something adventurous

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Surprisingly good for a movie with B-list actors, this family film has some tender and laugh-out-loud moments. Though the idea that Bigfoot would be a sensitive, music loving guy is not terribly believable, the earnestness with which Adam Raque's Percy approaches the monster is remniscent of moments in E.T.. You know, two lonely souls who help each other in the hour of need...

The script is pretty decent, and some comic bumbling issued from the bad guys Devlin (Andrew Chase) and Cletis (Brandon Gibson) keeps this sensitive-guy story from getting too cheesy. Parents might enjoy watching this one as much as their kids do.
