Cocoon (1985) Meet Art, Ben and Joe. Three simple, aging senior citizens who like to swim in an unguarded swimming pool next door from the old folks home they live in. So one day when they go swimming, they feel energized and "ready to take on the world!" What they don't know is that the pool was recently bought by four alien Antereans incognito as humans. Art, Ben, Joe and their friends soon discover this and offer to help the Antereans return the cocoons back to Antarea and as a reward, they offer something magnificent.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Jack Bonner: May the force be with you!
  • Jack Bonner: I wouldn't accuse you of dishonesty! I accuse you of being from another planet, but an honest planet!
  • Jack Bonner: If this is foreplay I'm a dead man!
  • Walter: Face-eating, Jack? Is that some kind of a delicacy?
  • Art Selwyn: [singing] Oh I'm in the mood for love. Ben Luckett: Will you listen to this guy, he'll be chasing them dogs 'til his dick runs off. Art Selwyn: Oh I'm too old for that sort of thing. Joseph Finley: Age isn't everything. Art Selwyn: Nope. Joseph Finley: Anyway it's all up here. Ben Luckett: Not all up there, Pal. Some of it's down here, which I might add is stiff as a board. Art Selwyn: You too? You got a boner too? Ben Luckett: Blue steel. Cat couldn't scratch it. Joseph Finley: I thought I was the only one. Art Selwyn: [singing] We're in the mood for love, simply because we've got one.
Movie Trivia:
  • Ron Howard's brother, mother and father all appear in the film.
  • Wilford Brimley was only 50 years old at the time of this film's production. He had to have his hair dyed gray in order to make him look geriatric.
  • The effects team revealed in interviews that the dolphins in the underwater scenes were animatronic, not live ones.
  • Hume Cronyn was a Golden Glove boxer and lost sight in one eye. In the scene where he hits the young orderly, without depth perception, he actually hit the young man and knocked him out.
  • According to Ron Howard, several members of the cast liked to get into hypothetical discussions about the chance their characters were offered in the film. Maureen Stapleton was dead against it, while Don Ameche said he'd be the first in line.
