Harvey is a 1996 American made-for-television fantasy-comedy film and a remake of the 1950 classic film based on Mary Chases play of the same name. The television adaptation was directed by George Schaefer and starred Harry Anderson, Leslie Nielsen, and Swoosie Kurtz.

1. Plot

Anderson stars as Elwood P. Dowd, a lovable eccentric who claims to have a six-foot invisible rabbit named Harvey as his best friend. Although that amuses people, Elwoods sister Veta Kurtz wants him committed to an asylum. Dr. Chumley Nielsen, the operator of the facility, and several of his employees end up believing in Elwood and that forces them to make their own decisions about his future.
