I never equated ET with testicles; I cant imagine where your personal reference was borne from but - maybe its the glowing red abdomen/ finger along with leathery skin and some type of rash you encountered..perhaps?I just revisited the classic film Harry and the Hendersons. After rewatching with fresh eyes, I found myself in disbelief that I once found this movie charming.
None of the narrative made sense to me: a Bigfoot being ran over by a family twice; the Bigfoot befriends a family and heartwarmingly makes them a stonger family, instead of tearing them to pieces immediately.
I was a kid when I first saw this movie in the theater. It made me want to go out and find my own Bigfoot in our surrounding woods. I’m glad I never did! Looking back,I was always creeped out by Harry’s weird giant head and ridiculous teeth and mouth.
This is even more pronounced today with all of the realistic CGI animations. I question a lot of those pre CGI moves for creeping me out. I found out later that same studio that gave us Harry the Bigfoot, Amblin Entertainment, Inc. also brought us that equally frightening testicle monster, E.T.
I give this movie a solid B.
