'E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial'

Alien agenda: Aliens on a mission to collect flora flee in haste when the government comes after them, accidentally leaving behind one of their own. Now, the new mission is to get him back. Did it work? The alien, E.T., passes the time by drinking beer, learning English via "Sesame Street" and hanging out with a few local kids. Once he crafts a phone out of a Speak and Spell he's able to get in touch with his fellow extraterrestrials and catch a ride home. -- Emily Christianson
