In the 1985 hit movie “Cocoon,” a group of elderly Florida residents become rejuvenated and youthful when they start swimming in a pool inhabited by alien pods.
The men start noticing their wives again. Couples start going out dancing. They start kicking butt in shuffleboard tournaments and enjoying life for the first time in years.
By the end of the movie, however, the “life force” has gone from the pool, and most of the retirees decide to go with the aliens to their home planet, where they will never grow older, never get sick and never die.
