Spielberg's family classic is still one of the best.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Steven Spielberg's classic, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial is an outstanding family movie -- one of the all-time best. Its themes of loyalty, trust, and caring are both affecting and easy to understand, and Elliott and E.T.'s extraordinary friendship is one of cinema's most enduring. Some scenes of peril and danger may be too intense for very young children, and a key character's apparent death will be emotional for just about everyone. Brief strong language includes "s--t" and "son of a bitch," as well as an insult that includes "penis." There's a bit of squabbling among siblings, and E.T. and Elliott both get/act tipsy in one comically memorable scene. A newer edition replaced guns with walkie-talkies, though that sparked a fair bit of backlash. The film was also criticized for having a complete absence of non-white characters. But when Elliott's bicycle lifts up into the sky and soars across the moon, all you'll remember is the joy of movie magic done right.
