Rejected Pitches for E.T. - Comedy Sketch

Who doesn't love E.T.? It's one of Spielberg's legendary achievements, and it's one of those movies I actually remember going to see in the theater when I was a little geek. 

Above Average Productions has created a new funny comedy sketch featuring a team of studio executives talking with director Steven Spielberg about what they love and hate about the script for the movie, and give the director their suggestions on how it should be changed and why. Throughout the sketch they keep referring to E.T. as a turd. 

This is from a webseries called Rejected Pitches, and here's a note from the creators:

The execs just have one little suggestion for Steven Spielberg's little turd of an alien movie.

The vast majority of movie pitches are rejected. Even movies that we know and love--or sort of love--were most likely rejected at some point, too. This is a series about the movie executives who rejected those pitches.

Check out the sketch below and let us know if you liked it! To watch the previously released Back to the Future sketch click here.
