    What is the best age to watch E.T.? The answer clearly is any age.

    One of my best friends in this world, who is a fellow movie/Spielberg lover like me, once told me in a random conversation of ours that E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial did not "do all that much" for him and I felt like I'd been run over by a truck several times over.
