Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Excellent "In ''E.T.,'' Spielberg proved a herald of the age when moviegoers would make full-time friends with fantasy, but his most special effect was taking us into ourselves.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "Strip away twenty years of hype, all the hyperbole and overblown praise, and E.T. comes across as a very pleasant diversion, but little more. The movie has (perhaps unfairly) been saddled with the mantle of "masterpiece", a title for which it is ill-suited.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Excellent "This movie made my heart glad. It is filled with innocence, hope, and good cheer. It is also wickedly funny and exciting as hell. "E.T The Extra-Terrestrial" is a movie like "The Wizard of Oz," that you can grow up with and grow old with, and it won't let you down.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Very Good "Though the story feels standard, the fun comes from the meticulously realized details injected into the material. From E.T.'s too-cute encounters with suburban living to the undeniable exhilaration felt when Thomas's bicycle magically soars into the air, the film bears witness to the undeniable powers of one of cinema's most skillful craftsmen.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We started to not collect opinions since everyone's already seen E.T., but we thought it would be fun to see how well it's held up over the last 20 years. As you can see, these are some very high opinions with virtually no low opinions. So, I believe E.T. can officially be considered a "Classic." Do yourself a favor and SEE IT AGAIN ON THE BIG SCREEN!

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
You don't really need my opinions on this classic since nearly everyone has already seen it. I do highly recommend that you not miss this rare chance to see it again on the big screen with all the digital enhancements and the additional footage.
