One reason why Bigfoot in real life shuns the public spotlight!
During its heyday, PM Entertainment made some great action movies. But when it came to making family movies, the results were pretty miserable, and "Bigfoot: The Unforgettable Encounter" is no exception. I guess it could have been worse than it is. For one thing, like other PM Entertainment movies, it looks pretty nice for the most part. The lighting and photography are professional, and the production values are fairly solid (if you don't count the bogus-looking Bigfoot costume and makeup.) However, pretty much the rest of the movie is extremely tough to take. The script by director Corey Michael Eubanks is pretty simple-minded to the point that even young kids will feel they are being talked down to in an insulting manner. Also, there are a few plot points that are either explained in a really vague manner or not at all. In the director's chair, Eubanks stumbles just as much with his screenplay. He has his cast act more often than not in a really broad manner, the story unfolds in a really slow-moving and drawn out way, and the scenes with Bigfoot contain no awe or magic at all. You do get to see B movie legend Clint Howard in an unintentionally hilarious wig, but a few seconds of chuckles don't seem to be an adequate payoff for sitting through the remaining ninety or so minutes of the running time.
