Drew Barrymore stars, as a young child alongside Henry Thomas (Elliot) as they become friends with an extraterrestrial they call E.T. While E.T. is stranded on Earth, Elliot and his friends help keep E.T. a secret from his mother and the government as they help him get back to his home planet. E.T: The Extra-Terrestrial is a family friendly movie that children and adults both enjoy. Thirty years later, this movie is just as fun as when it was first released.
