Batteries Not Included

Batteries Not Included is a 1987 family-comic science fiction film directed by Matthew Robbins about small extraterrestrial living machines that save an apartment block under threat from property development. The story was originally intended to be featured in the TV series Amazing Stories, but executive producer Steven Spielberg liked the idea so much that he decided to make it a theatrical release. It is also notable for being the feature film screenwriting debut of Brad Bird, who was one of the writer and producers of the show. Many of the film's foreign releases used the title Miracle on 8th Street. ... more on Wikipedia
