Spielberg's famous fantasy, one of the most popular films in history, portrays a limpid-eyed alien stranded on earth and his special bonding relationship with a young boy. A modern fairy tale providing warmth, humor and sheer wonder. Held the first place spot as the highest grossing movie of all time for years until a new Spielberg hit replaced it--"Jurassic Park." Debra Winger contributed to the voice of E.T.

This is such a good movie. A small little alien gets stranded on earth when his space ship takes off without him. One day a 10 year old named Elliot hears something in his shed and discovers ET. Elliot makes a trail of m&m's to coax ET up to his bedroom closet and that is where he hides out. Elliot soon discovers how to communicate with ET and figures out that he needs to find a way to get ET home. Other people discover ET as well and want to keep him for experiments.One famous scene is when ET is in Elliot's basket on his bike, there are several other kids on bikes and they are trying to get to the park to get ET back to his space ship. Many men are chasing them and even have the road blocked off and ET makes all the bicycles go up in the air. You can't help but loving little ET and hoping he gets home soon. This is an excellent movie for the entire family!
