David opens the 1962 Cadillac's trunk from the inside, but that is not possible. It requires a key from the outside. It would also have been impossible for him to get inside without the keys, which his grandfather has. See more »

It looks to me like what you're doing is listening to a lot of people tell you you can't do it when maybe what you should be doing is listening to yourself say that you can.

After I enjoyed the first Cocoon so much I decided that the sequel could not be too bad. For the most part, the Cocoon: The Return remains a generally enjoyable film even if most of the magic remained in the original. In this one, the elderly friends return back to earth to catch up on everything that had missed out on while they were away. The biggest problem when they get back to earth is that all of the special protection from illness and aging that they had with the aliens eventually wears off, and if they don't get back to their planet with the aliens quickly, some of them may die. Overall, an enjoyable and harmless sequel to the original. If you liked the original you will most likely enjoy this sequel. ***1/2 out of *****.
