If the creator considers it as such, moving that to the creator's page.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Elliot's family has an Atari 2600 on top of their TV in several shots, and it's implied the kids play Atari games. VideoGame/ETTheExtraTerrestrial was one of the games responsible for TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983 and put a severe early dent in the ''E.T.'' name.

* MagnumOpus: Beloved enough to be considered as a candidate (one of many) for Steven Spielberg. Spielberg himself has said it's one of his proudest achievements, citing it as being the film he'd most like his kids to watch.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Elliot getting drunk (via his connection to ET) seems a lot harsher knowing the Drew Barrymore, Elliot's sister, would soon have drug problems as a young child. ** Elliot's family has an Atari 2600 on top of their TV in several shots, and it's implied the kids play Atari games.

* HarsherInHindsight: There's a picture of MichaelJackson with E.T. and he narrated an E.T. Storybook Record. In real life, Michael Jackson's skin turned from brown to white and he looked rather sickly before he died, just like E.T. towards the end of the film.

Added DiffLines:
* {{Misblamed}}: For the video game crash of 1982 and subsequent closing of Atari Inc. While certainly a contributing factor, it was not ''the'' reason. It had more to do with a bloated market of [[TheyJustDidntCare far more hackneyed games]] licensed from [[MoneyDearBoy every conceivable copyrighted property]].

* ValuesResonance: 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.

* ValuesDissonance: In a post September 11th world, not many kids would go as a terrorist for Halloween.

** A lot of the film can be a bit cheesy from an adult perspective, but it's also one of the most beloved films of all time.
