The screen treatment of Mary Chase's comedic stageplay, Harvey, tells the story of an alcoholic who is the bane of his sister & niece's social life because his best buddy is a big ol' bunny that only he can see and hear.
At best it's 'gentle chuckle' funny but never gets outright outrageous nor does it really pack the wit it could have with the bizarre subject matter. If anything, the film is classic only because of it's eccentric premise and not the actual final product. Still, it's just harmlessly entertaining with enough meat to conjure a few conversations afterwards.
As far as classic Stewart films go this one isn't an essential but fares better as light-hearted family fun.
