Greetings, earthlings. A pint-sized extraterrestrial has just landed on our planet by accident?and he's feeling a little alienated because he got separated from his family upon arrival. Fortunately, the hilarious, intergal... more »actic antics of this Mysterious Alien Creature (MAC) will help him charm his way into the heart of everyone he meets, including Ronald McDonald in a rare cameo!« less
"mac and me is insane. this movie is chock full of moments that really tug at the heart-strings. feel sorry for the poor little wheel-chair bound boy and don't forget to buy coca-cola and eat at mcdonald's. at one point the alien dies and is revived by drinking coca-cola. i love this movie."
Even The Title Is a Product Placement!

"If you want your kids to watch an inferior version of E.T. filled with poor acting and loaded with product placements for Coke and McDonalds you have found your movie! Oh and with an added bonus not included in E.T. Mac and Me offers a disturbing scene in which a disabled wheelchair bound boy falls off a cliff and nearly drowns. Don't worry he is saved by the title alien Mac (get it like a Big Mac sandwich) who apparently needs to drink Coca Cola to stay alive. I was chilled when Mac tells us he'll be back implying he'll be appearing in a followup film but since the movie is now almost twenty years old and no sequel has appeared on the horizon perhaps we can rest easy."

"This is it. Oh my God, is this bad. Beyond description awful. This Coke and McDonald's commercial, I mean, "movie", rips off E.T., has atrocious acting, panders to an audience's sympathy for the handicapped, assuming you have the emotional depth of a Lilliputian puddle, and, most importantly, will make you laugh beyond belief. The dance scene in McDonald's has to be seen to be believed. Buy it now."
Bad movie, but fun to watch

"Yeah yeah, product placements, but what is funny is how "perfectly turned" the products are to the camera. The skittles bag is poured with a near perfect looking bag. The coke cans are turned toward the camera so the logo shows, the girl is mostly always wearing her McDonalds uniform during the movie, etc.
The part I remember most is near the end when wheelchair boy goes boom. His friends bring him over, and one shouts "He's breathing, he's going to be ok". Then another guy comes over, looks at him for literally 2 seconds, and says "There's nothing I can do for him", and hurries off. Everyone starts crying. HELLO? CPR Anyone? This scene was totally not believable, some movies you get teary eyed when the main character dies off, but in this one, I could really care less.
What makes it hilarious is right at the end where you see "We'll be back", thankfully that has yet to happen."

"I swear, this movie is worth buying just to have it at your disposal for a laughter session. the mcdonalds dance scene is probably the lamest, but also the funniest thing ive ever seen. how does this stiff crappy alien turn into a 3 feet tall dancing machine in a few seconds?? The only reason for 3 stars is because of its humor content, not bc of its originality (et)"
