42. E.T. in the Bathtub
Movie: E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (2002; 20th Anniversary Special Edition re-release)
No, that's not the E.T. we all knew and loved as kids that you see above—it's the unfortunate byproduct of Steven Spielberg's foolish decision to emulate old friend George Lucas and tinker around with one of his cinematic classics for an anniversary re-release. Discontent with keeping the lovable extra-terrestrial in its original prosthetic form, Spielberg recreated E.T. using CGI for the scene where young Elliot (Henry Thomas) plays with his new friend after the latter washes up in a bathtub. Fuck phoning home—someone should have called the fuzz on Spielberg back in 2002 for such a criminally stupid act.
