E.T. is the name given to the friendly botanist alien that befriends a young boy named Elliot and his siblings and forms a special bond during the short time he's stranded here on Earth in his heartwarming and sweet science fiction family film by Steven Spielberg! Some mischief ensues as the children try to hide the whereabouts of E.T. from various adults, including government agents and scientists. This classic has charm to spare and can magically lift spirits, so if you've never seen this film, give it a go and find out why it was a HUGE hit in the early 80s! Spot then very young actresses Drew Barrymore and Erika Eleniak, as well as the shot that makes up Amblin Studio's logo.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial mistake picture

Continuity mistake: In the exterior front shots of Elliott's house there are some significant changes to the landscape in different shots. For instance, the two lampposts at the bottom of the driveway change to an entirely different style in some shots, and the huge garden boulders repeatedly vanish and reappear. Also, note when Michael takes off on Elliott's bike to go search for ET, the in-ground lamppost that should be beside the mailbox has vanished, but it reappears when all the government agents are setting things up outside the house.
