* A {{Cracked}} [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7faGZJZzZ4k After Hours video] argued that E.T.'s mind-controlling, telepathic, lifeforce-draining, telekinetic, resource-harvesting race were ever to decide our planet was worth conquering, we would be in for a CosmicHorrorStory.

* A minor example. Since we don't know what happened after E.T. left, it is possible Elliott's family got in trouble with the federal government for setting E.T. free.

Added DiffLines:

* The movie is basically a retelling of TheWizardOfOz. E.T. wants to get home and is helped by three companions. Some scenes are even similar, such as the kiss goodbye at the end.

Added DiffLines:

* Also counts as CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Before Gertie meets E.T, she yells "Elliott, look what I made for you" and can be seen holding a piece of paper in her hand. Elliott faked being sick so he could stay home and play with E.T, and Gertie genuinely thought he was sick and made a get well card.

** It's possible the guns weren't even loaded at all, and they just wanted to intimidate the kids.

Added DiffLines:

* Why the FBI are keeping their distance during the chase could mean two things. One is that they are following the kids to try to find where the spaceship is. Two while the kids are harboring an alien, [[WouldntHurtAChild they are still kids and they are taking extra special care of not speeding up in risk of running them over.]] Even with the guns pointing at them, they were more or less a last resort warning, or else they would have shot them down during the flight.

Added DiffLines:

** He would have to stop and find a rock that would support his weight. He can't just grab any rock he finds, and it would need to be light enough to levitate. Levitating a branch would likely require removing the branch from the tree, which is unfeasible.

** Which makes it Spielberg's rebuttal to the ending of his previous ''Close Encounters of the Third Kind'' where the father ''did'' leave his family to go galivanting with aliens (none of whom he had formed a relationship with).
* Going by the above post, it took me years to realize that E.T. is a StealthSequel to CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind. The space ships even have some similarities.
