** A mild example on the blu-ray The movie looks great but in some wide shots, like when Elliot introduces E.T. to Michael, you can tell it's a guy in a costume. It's apparent because in the next shot it's the expressive E.T. puppet, and the costume has a mask with a blank stare.

** You may need to overthink it a bit, but Eliot calling his bother "penis breath" is basically a PG variation on "cocksucker," but it also comes off as him calling his brother a [[{{Homophobia}} faggot]], this being an era where "gay" was still a popular insult.

** In 1982, a teenager going trick-or-treating as a terrorist would've been stupid and offensive. Post-9/11, it'll more than likely get you arrested.
** On a more lighthearted note, the film came out when Dungeons and Dragons was still a new creation, and thus it hadn't picked up the reputation of being a game for geeky losers. Try to find another instance in media where the game's being played by popular jocks.

arrested. Partly justified if one was escorting his younger siblings like in the film.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: The whole "Worst game ever" reputation. Most modern players [[SoOkayItsAverage only consider it boring than completely and utterly infuriating and unlikable]]. And since [[http://www.seanbaby.com/nes/nes/egm17.htm quite]] [[VideoGame/Superman64 a few]] [[VideoGame/Action52 later]] [[VideoGame/RideToHellRetribution games]] are considered to hold the title better, the title isn't used for this game very often anymore.
