amazing movie growing up
If we approach the unfamiliar with fear and apprehension, we will be met with fear and apprehension. But if we approach with sympathy and curiosity, we will be rewarded with same. And our souls, not to mention our bicycles, will soar to the heavens. [2002 re-release]
E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is a reminder of what movies are for. Most movies are not for any one thing, of course. Some are to make us think, some to make us feel, some to take us away from our problems, some to help us examine them. What is enchanting about E.T. is that, in some measure, it does all of those things. [2002 re-release]

Did You Know?
- The young actors (Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore, and Robert MacNaughton) found the ET puppet's eyes too far apart to comfortably look ET in the eye when they had to act with it. The actors solved the problem themselves by selecting a single eye to look at for every scene.
- Elliot crashes his bike during the chase through the new housing development, but is back in the pack an impossibly short time later.
- Elliott: He's a man from outer space and we're taking him to his spaceship.
- Greg: Well, can't he just beam up?
- Elliott: This is *reality*, Greg.
