Cocoon: The Return
Cocoon: The Return ★★ 1988 (PG)
Old timers who left with aliens in “Cocoon” return to earth and face grave prob lems. Less compelling sequel misses guiding hand of earlier film's director, Ron Howard. Still, most of cast from the origi nal is on board here, and the film has its moments. 116m/C VHS, DVD .
