ET the Extra-Terrestrial has been voted the greatest family film
of all time in a survey published yesterday in Radio Times magazine. Over 2,500 people voted and this story about a boy helping a friendly alien find his way home came out on top, despite coming out 28 years ago.
However, ET was by no means the oldest creature in a list full of ogres, wizards and time travellers. In fact, half of the top-ten entries were films that came out over 40 years ago. Perhaps kids actually do listen to their parents afterall!
Here’s the list of the top ten family films of all time, according to the poll. Have you seen them all? Do you think any other film should be top instead? Let us know what you think by clicking here.
