*batteries not included (1987)
One of the most compelling movies I have seen.
Matthews Robbins does an excellent job directing the characters in this way out movie about a group of destitute people fighting to prevent the destruction of their Chicago apartment building in the mist of progress. Faced with the taunts and threats of the developers, five families are forced to take a stand. Help comes from two tiny "living" spaceships that give birth to three more, one of which "dies" and is brought back to life by an ex-boxer who has not spoken in years after his failure in his career. With the help of the outsiders, the diner on the ground floor of the apartment building is able to continue running even after it is destroyed by agents for the developers. Although helpful, the "babies" find themselves in pancake batter and replacing the meat in hamburgers! A hilarious film. A must see by all who have a tender heart!
