Continuity mistake: When the boys are riding their bikes trying to escape with ET, all the bikes have single brake levers on the right side of their handlebars, but after Elliott shouts that they should follow him to the forest, there's a shot from the POV of one of the bike riders (we know it's not Greg or Elliott) and he has two brake levers on his handlebar.
E.T. is the name given to the friendly botanist alien that befriends a young boy named Elliot and his siblings and forms a special bond during the short time he's stranded here on Earth in his heartwarming and sweet science fiction family film by Steven Spielberg! Some mischief ensues as the children try to hide the whereabouts of E.T. from various adults, including government agents and scientists. This classic has charm to spare and can magically lift spirits, so if you've never seen this film, give it a go and find out why it was a HUGE hit in the early 80s! Spot then very young actresses Drew Barrymore and Erika Eleniak, as well as the shot that makes up Amblin Studio's logo.
Elliot: Okay, he's a man from outer space, and we're taking him to his spaceship.
Greg: Well, can't he just beam up?
Elliot: This is reality, Greg.
