E.T.'s spaceship was designed by conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie (who also designed the mothership for Steven Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"). Described in the screenplay as looking like something from a Dr. Seuss story, McQuarrie gave the ship a distinctly Victorian, Jules Verne-like appearance. See more »
The movie is set in California and there are several police cars when the government comes to the house and pursues the kids to catch E.T. The front of the police cars are missing a steady red light. Even during the time the movie was made, in California, all police and emergency vehicles in California require at least one steady red light facing forward. See more »
Very touching movie about a special friendship for all ages that will warm your heart and make you cry
E.T. THE EXTRA TERRESTRIAL, in my opinion, is a very touching movie about a special friendship for all ages that will warm your heart and make you cry. I really loved the magic that E.T. performed. If I could have, I would have helped him get to safety myself. The only problem is how I would get him to safety, since I can't drive. The score was good, the costumes were perfectly designed, everyone was cast perfectly, and the direction was flawless. In conclusion, I highly recommend this very touching movie about a special friendship for all ages to anyone who hasn't seen it. You're in for a real treat and a good time, so go to the video store, rent it or buy it, kick back with someone close to you, and watch it. I guarantee you you'll thoroughly enjoy it.
