An extra-terrestrial is accidentally left behind on Earth and is befriended by a young boy and his brother and sister. As Elliot attempts to help his extra-terrestrial companion contact his home planet so that he might be rescued, the children must elude scientists and government agents determined to apprehend the alien for their own purposes...which results in an adventure greater than any of them could have imagined.
It's true. I've never seen it. I used to say that with embarrassment, but now, almost 25 years later, is it even something that I should see? I thought Drew Barrymore looked adorable as the little sister, and of course, E.T. himself is rather cute, in a rather bit of an ugly way. But now, with special effects and technology and all that, I'm wondering if it'll just seem cheesy and outdated, and I'll end up not liking it.
