BIGFOOT FAMOUS (2021) Review of vlogger comedy movie



‘Fame is just one vlog away’

Bigfoot Famous is a 2021 comedy about a once-popular influencer who goes on a mission to film a vlog with Bigfoot and regain her fame.

Directed by Sam Milman and Peter Vass from a screenplay co-written with Steph Barkley and Chris Kleckner.

The American Bad Weather Films production stars Steph Barkley (Confess), Chris Kleckner (Copshop), Anthony Ma (Scandal), Lauren Howard Hayes and Marlon Webb.


Bigfoot Famous is one of those films not intended to be taken seriously. It is made just for the fun of it and is intended to be enjoyed in the same vein. However, this does deliver some good social commentary that is enough to make you look beyond that outlandish storyline and somewhat bland acting.” Gh Movie Freak

“Even though Bigfoot features prominently in the title, he hardly actually features in the movie, which is much more of a satire on social media fame than a monster movie. However, the satire is rolled into some light, irreverent, and sometimes pretty darn funny comedy. But what makes this movie is that it also has heart and that it also has room for plenty of drama without destroying the light-footedness of the movie.” Search My Trash

Release date:

Bigfoot Famous will be released on Digital by Gravitas Ventures on November 2, 2021.

MOVIES and MANIA says:

This is clearly a comedy but anyone expecting to enjoy any Bigfoot action will be sorely disappointed. As the other half of its title – Famous – attests, this movie is more about a facile female social media influencer whose fame is waning and so she desperately searches for a sighting of Sasquatch to bolster her clicks.

There are some mildly amusing silly moments but it’s all fairly throwaway stuff. A very unlikely romantic sub-plot and some annoying characters in the supporting cast hardly help matters.
