SPOILER: The original Japanese VHS release of features an earlier cut of the film, with an alternative ending. When Eric wheels after the aliens heading back into the shopping mall, a police officer tries to grab him and falls over. This causes his gun to discharge a bullet, striking Eric through the chest and killing him instantly. This explains why Eric is suddenly motionless when the building explodes. In all other versions, it's implied he died from the explosion. There are also some other minor color tinting and editing differences. See more »
Oh, yeah--just rent it once. Watch it with friends. If not for the fact that it's completely different from ET--this kid's in a wheelchair! If not for the fact that the alien saves the boy as he rolls out of control down a hill! The absolute best (you'll think I'm making this up) the song-and-dance number in the McDonald's (!) featuring the entire football team and cheer-leading squad (!) all in full uniform (!) in an effort to elude the police!!! I was rolling on the floor.
