Trivia

When Paul Rudd appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993) he liked to play a prank. He'd set up a clip of his upcoming movie and say he was going to have it played for the audience. Then he would show the scene from this film where Eric falls into the water. See more »

Goofs

When Michael tries to pull Eric and his wheelchair into the van while being chased, Michael is wearing sunglasses in one shot, but not before or after he pulls Eric into the van. See more »

ET II: Electric Boogaloo
13 September 2003 | by (CA, USA) – See all my reviews

As someone else mentioned, this movie was full of unintentional laughs. The kid in the wheelchair barrelling down the hill and then careening off the side of a cliff at mock speed was in a word...hilarious. It's too bad all of the actors in this piece of turd turned in some BAD performances, because I wanted to root for them, instead I snickered. The aliens looked to be made of paper machete and old panty hose. The alien did nothing but raise hell for the kids and their families, there were even a few cringeworthy dance numbers (in a McDonald's parking lot no less) and an ending that looked and felt cornier then any field in Iowa. If you wanna laugh and snark, rent this movie. If you're looking for a QUALITY movie for your kids, skip this one.
