Mac and Me (1988) – Critics Consensus 0%
Perhaps writers wanted to extend the cultural moment of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial in 1982 with this one. But Mac and Me did not become the biggest blockbuster of its era, very unlike the Spielberg-directed film. What was the idea here, exactly?
Constant product placement for Coca-Cola and McDonald’s plagued this doozy about the friendship between an alien and a boy in a wheelchair. MAC the alien couldn’t get enough of McDonald’s, and Ronald MacDonald actually dances for five whole minutes during the movie.
Sound good? Rotten Tomatoes critics are going with 0%. MAC, phone home!
