Weekend DVD 2: *batteries not included (1987)

Five ordinary people needed a miracle. Then one night, Faye Riley left the window open.

From the producers of E.T. Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, comes
*batteries not included, a 1987 delightful family science fiction movie.

A group of poor tenants on New York's Lower East Side have nothing more than sheer determination to stop the destruction of their homes. This feisty group of five are delighted when a few 'visitors' from the outer space drop by to help them out...

Filled with dazzling special effects, this amusing fantasy of intergalactic warmth stars the acclaimed husband-wife team of Hume Cronyn (as Frank Riley) and Jessica Tandy (as Faye Riley) as two long-term tenants whose faith is rewarded in ways they never would have expected.


Faye calls these visitors, the tiny spaceships as "Fix-Its" because they fix things in their soon-to-be torn down building. Frank calls them spaceships "from a very small planet... very small."

The best thing about this movie is the warm, 'symbiotic' relationship between the spaceships and the human beings. Initially there's only a pair of spaceships, a male and a female. They 'feed' themselves with electric and metal pieces. Then, the female spaceship gives birth to three little fellas. I know this sounds weird but that's the main plot of this movie.

This is a good weekend movie. I'm not too sure where you can get this DVD. David got it from a toy warehouse sale. :)
