E.T. The Extraterrestial

E.T. [PG]


"E.T., phone home": The alien cry that has spanned generations. In this 1982 classic, Elliott (Henry Thomas) lives with his single mother (Dee Wallace), his older brother Michael (Robert MacNaughton), and his younger sister Gertie (Drew Barrymore). One day, while looking for something in the backyard, he discovers something extraordinary — an alien spacecraft on a scientific mission mistakenly left behind a funny-looking being who isn't sure how to get home. Elliott makes contact with the "little squashy guy," and helps him find his way while protecting him from a group of government scientists.

Kids will love meeting this irresistible creature, and parents will love re-watching one of their childhood favorites, too.
