Film Review

By Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat


Batteries Not Included
Directed by Matthew Robbins
Universal Studios Home Video 1987 DVD/VHS Feature Film

This film features an elderly couple, a former boxer, an artist, and a pregnant woman as besieged individuals who donítí want to leave their homes in a rundown city tenement. The building is going to be torn down for a high-rise complex. Then two little spaceships from another planet arrive looking for a power source. The tenants help them out and, in return, the extraterrestrial critters work wonders for them. Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy star in this entertaining and heartwarming story directed by Matthew Robbins. Steven Spielberg served as an executive producer.
