Mac and MeRating: 1.9/5 (with 43 votes)
Mac and Me is a 1988 American comic science fiction film co-written (with Steve Feke) and directed by Stewart Raffill. Starring Christine Ebersole, Jonathan Ward and Tina Caspary alongside Lauren Stanley and Jade Calegory in their only film appearances, the film centers on a "Mysterious Alien Creature" (MAC) that escapes from nefarious NASA agents and is befriended by a wheelchair-using boy named Eric Cruise. Together, Eric and MAC try to find MAC's family, from whom he has been separated. Despite praise for Calegory's lead performance, the film flopped at the box office and was panned by critics for the film's imitations of numerous concepts from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) and excessive product placement (mainly of McDonald's and Coca-Cola). The film was nominated for four Golden Raspberry Awards, and won Worst Director and Worst New Star (for Ronald McDonald). However, the film received four Youth in Film Awards (now Young Artist Awards)... ()
