    "While E.T. is clearly a classic I found that it just doesn't stand the test of time where I was concerned. I enjoyed the movie when it was originally released in 1982 but as an adult had a hard time getting into it and frankly found it rather stupid. In addition, it's rather slow paced meaning the younger set of today might be bored by it. Still obviously a great movie, just keep your expectations tempered."

    "Steven Spielberg is hailed as one of the greatest movie directors of all-time, and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial is a prime example of his quality as a filmmaker. It is a thrilling and heart-warming tale of a boy who befriends an alien, and it is ideal for the whole family. While it is difficult to categorize the best Sci-Fi Movies ever, E.T. certainly deserves to be on the list."

    "I have kids and was looking for some movies to occupy them while I"m working at home. I use Netflix and found E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial to be fantastic for this. They love it. Although it's a bit scary in parts toward the end, they love the character of E.T. and are fascinated by his interactions with the family he lives with. My kids request to watch it often."

    "One of the most iconic films of all time! This isn't just a summer film folks. This is the real thing. Those young kids literally are the best actors in this movie. Also, that E. T. is cuddly and I daresay that if they came to conquer us, they would just have to light their thumbs and we'll bow down to their cuteness. HAHAHA!"

There are some scary and upsetting moments, so be aware of that if you have a kid who is sensitive like I was. But it's good for you to be a little spooked sometimes, and the pure love and magic in this film cannot be matched."

    "An epic movie for Kids. I loved the movie as a kid and still do.Whenever I get a chance to watch it, I still do. The movie will bring out a plethora of emotions out of you and few scenes are really gripping. There is not even a single second when you will not be entertained by the Kids and their beguiled friend E.T."

    "When I watched E.T. with my husband I was happy to allow my kids to watch too because there is nothing overtly offensive in the film. The family was also likable and reminded me of growing up in the 80s. I just did not like the looks of the alien!"
