Watch Mac and Me - Alternative Versions.
When I was a child I watched some very bad movies; some were so bad,
they made Cool as Ice look like the original Rebel Without a Cause. I'm
talking about grade-A quality garbage, here.
Mac and Me was a film I frequently watched an embarrassing,
agonizing, shameless marketing scheme fueled by McDonalds featuring a
plot ripped off of E.T. And I ate it all up I used to love this
Watching it now is like a slap in the face. Wow, it's that bad. When I
was younger I didn't notice the numerous references to Mickey D's and
Coca-Cola I just marveled at the sight of strange alien beings
whistling to music that played only in my head. I considered Mac and Me
to be the pinnacle of film-making. Or perhaps I'm discrediting myself
I wasn't that stupid, but I was naïve enough to believe, at least, that
it was a fun movie, and unlike anything I had ever seen before.
Well, at least one opinion remains -- it is unlike anything I've ever
seen before a rip-off so bad beyond words that it's almost as
unbelievably awful as another shameless E.T. knock-off, Pod People, my
choice for the worst film of all-time and another 'so-bad-it's-good'
gem that is actually so bad it becomes good, then bad again, where it
continues in this cycle until it becomes downright petrifying.
The film's protagonist is wheelchair-bound Michael (Jonathan Ward), an
adolescent who moves to a new city and finds himself meeting up with a
strange puppet err, alien named 'Mac' (I guess?), who waddles
around like E.T. and is searching for his parents, who were picked up
by a NASA space probe and are now out in California doing
who-knows-what. Apparently they're not too eager to find their son
since they spend the duration of the movie crawling at a snail's pace
under the glare of the sun, stopping every now and again to emit sounds
similar to that of a drunken elephant, making patterns in the air with
their extended index fingers (now, where have I seen that in an
alien-oriented movie before?).
I could write an entire book on the faults of Mac and Me. To fit them
into a single article almost seems ridiculous.
Primarily it's just plain dumb, although it is also a horrendous mess
from a technical standpoint. Its plot resembles that of RoboCop3
sloppy and vague. Direction is equal to that of a standard TV
commercial, only one of the more boring sorts. The acting also compares
to a television commercial, only in ads the people aren't always
expected to actually say anything other than stare at the camera and
smile like they're enjoying whatever product is being pushed. Some of
that applies to Mac and Me since it is such a commercial,
buy-this-product-after-you're-done-watching-the-movie sort of
experience unfortunately there is the odd moment where the movie
doesn't focus on its bizarre alien creatures or Coca-Cola or Ronald
McDonald or brand wheelchairs or space exploration companies and
demands its so-called 'actors' speak their lines. I'd rather be stuck
having to watch fake prosthetic extra-terrestrials quack and make weird
noises than suffer through one more 'actor's' attempt at bringing life
to the project. My guess is most of the cast were hired from a nearby
McDonald's restaurant seeing how McDonald's funded, promoted, and
endorsed this movie, as well as the fact that their company logo is
shown from beginning to end. It's about one hundredth as fun as those
BMW commercials with 'The Driver,' and one thousandth as subtle.
The dialogue is classic stuff. Conversations usually consist of at
least one marketing plug, sometimes more. Here's an example of some
great screen writing:
Michael: Gee Mac, I don't know where your parents are. It's tough being
in a wheelchair. I'm still adapting to this new home. By the way, in
case you didn't get it by now, I don't have any friends except you!
Where are your parents, Mac?
Mac: Blurp! Beep! Weeeooop!
Michael: Oh darn.
Annoying Brother Ripped Off of the Brother from E.T.: Gee, how the darn
are we gonna get Mac to his parents?
Michael: I don't know. Let's go discuss it over a two-dollar quarter
pounder with cheese at McDonald's. First one there's a Coca-Cola! By
the way I heard that McDonald's is the number-one food chain in America
with over one million restaurants nationwide! That's a whole lotta
greatness! Hey look, it's a Krispy Kreme truck I wonder if the
driver, Mr. Shack, is still selling radios.
Granted, that conversation doesn't appear in the film because it's
too good. What I just wrote would qualify for a an Oscar for Best
Original Screenplay after being compared to 'Mac and Me.'
Then there's the most memorable and infamous scene, which is when Mac
is left home alone during a school day, and 'accidentally' throws a
huge orgy with all the eager NASA scientists. Wait a minute, wrong
movie. The best (or worst) part of Mac and Me actually takes place at
McDonald's (!). It begins as a birthday party, becomes a dance
competition, and ends as a frantic showdown between Ronald McDonald and
a bunch of football players (?!) and, of course, Mac, doing flips
through the air dressed as some sort of animal (another '?!'). Don't
ask, because I don't think there's an answer, other than this: $$$
The movie is one huge conglomerate of '80s conglomerations, if that
makes any sense. What a wonderful film! (Not.) If you can put up with
the wooden acting, bizarre (often downright confusing) screenplay,
annoying stereotypical characters, and merchandising plugs
really are a sad pathetic waste of space and are exactly the type of
candidate they're looking for to pen 'Mac and Me II: The Quest for More
Money.' (I had to fit a Mel Brooks reference in there somewhere. After
all, he paid me to. And I think that's the entire approach to 'Mac and
