Unlike The Goonies, this seems to be one of the few Speilberg productions from the 1980's that's largely forgotten by fans of that era. Batteries Not Included was a gentle look at the residents of a New York brownstone, whose apartment building is "invaded" by tiny, friendly robotic flying saucers. Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn, two unlikely sci-fi stars, weren't able to muster the same box office success for this 1987 film that they did with their previous alien encounter film, 1985's Cocoon. Do you remember Batteries Not Included?
