Clearly a kids movie, but definitely one that can be enjoyed by nearly anyone. The loveable E.T. character meets a boy named Elliot who attempts to keep him concealed. Eventually of course his family find out and they all soon fall in love with the alien. The only thing is the men in the white lab coats want to find him to dissect him. Also E.T. keeps trying to communicate with home and he's getting mightly sickly. It's a family adventure that has a little bit of everything and should please just about anyone.
