Tongue-In-Cheek Bigfoot Movies

A college professor competes for tenure with a hot-shot female colleague. Luke Wilson's buddy in the film is chasing Bigfoot and the Tall Man makes a few random appearances. This is a really funny movie. One of my favorite obscure comedies of a sad sap guy who nothing seems to work right for.

Harry and the Hendersons
Returning from a hunting trip in the forest, the Henderson family's car hits an animal in the road. At first they fear it was a man, but when they examine the "body" they find it's a "bigfoot". They think it's dead so they decide to take it home (there could be some money in this..). As you guessed, "it" isn't dead. Far from being the ferocious monster they fear "Harry" to be, he's a friendly giant. In their attempts to keep Harry a secret, the Henderson's have to hide him from the authorities and a man, who has made it his goal in life, to catch a "bigfoot."

Strange Wilderness
With the ratings dropping for a wilderness-themed TV show, two animal fans go to the Andes in search of Bigfoot.

Little Bigfoot
Young Payton Shoemaker and his sister are the only ones who can save Little Bigfoot and his family from the ruthless logging company that sets out to eliminate them.

Percy Caldwell is in love with the school's most popular cheerleader, Madison, but his best friend Leonard doesn't think he stands a chance. After Percy rescues Madison from the unwanted attention of two bullies, they knock his bicycle off the road with their truck, and he ends up crashing in the forest. When he comes to, he is confronted by a new friend, Bigfoot, an eight-foot-tall creature, who has been displaced by a recent forest fire. Since his parents do not believe his story, Percy decides he has to look after Bigfoot. But when the two bullies stumble upon Bigfoots existence, they decide to capture him, take him back to their farm, and sell him to the highest bidder. Now its up to Percy, Leonard, and Madison to rescue Bigfoot and return him to his home.

Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer
Third grader Judy Moody sets out to have the most thrilling summer of her life.

Bigfoot the Unforgettable Encounter
An 11 year old boy, an age old legend, a life long friendship.

Night of the Sassy: 
Short comedy film - Sally, a Bigfoot enthusiast, goes camping with her skeptical boyfriend Rob. A very close encounter with the legendary creature reaffirms Sally's faith in her furry friend

Here's one on me - MST3000's commentary version of Boggy Creek 2 (below)

Unintentionally funny Bigfoot movies 

The Legend of Boggy Creek:  This early 70s documentary was a gosh-darn adorable little foray into the concept of the Southern Bigfoot, meant to be able to be seen by all age family members, with quaint background music, a folksy type of narrator and some very poorly executed reenactments. It is both a delight and an amusement.

Bigfoot (syfy) Barry Williams and Danny Bonaduce and a horrible 30-foot tall lion-roaring CGI Bigfoot at a rock concert.

Yeti: Curse of the Snow Demon (Syfy) Plane crashes with ridiculous teenagers onboard - into a mountain covered in snow and - a yeti of awesomely awful performance.

I guess what I'm saying here is, if it was made by Syfy....
