E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
There are so many reasons to love this touching tale of an alien who is abandoned on Earth, tries to fit in, and longs for home: (1) Seeing the bewitchingly cute Drew Barrymore as a child actress; (2) Reese’s Pieces; (3) the adorable alien; (4) the rockin’ spaceship; and (5) the catchphrase ”E.T., phone home.” Enduring.
