Parents who grew up loving Steven Spielberg's touching, sometimes intense family classic about family, friendship, and the meaning of home will be excited to share the new 30th-anniversary Blu-ray edition with the next generation. What Parents Should Know:
Parents need to know that Steven Spielberg's classic has some scenes of mild peril that may be too intense for younger children. For example, E.T. looks like he has died in one scene. There is brief but strong language by today's standards for a PG movie. E.T. contains one of the most memorable product placements ever, Reese's Pieces, as well as a scene in which Elliott feels slightly drunk, because E.T. has indulged in a beer. Families should also be aware of the fact that the movie was criticized for having a complete absence of non-white characters. —Common Sense Media
