Not an actual movie but a product placement ad
I have to wonder what movie the previous two reviewers were watching because it obviously wasn't this one. This is literally nothing more than a 1 hr. 30 odd minute product placement film. And as such, it does have some importance in cinema history because it was the FIRST product placement movie. Not because it was any good. There is literally no plot here. Outside of Christine Ebersole, there isn't much acting either. It is literally one product placement after another. The kid even has product placement in his room and on his wheelchair! (And if anyone thinks that a kid in a wheelchair can survive a 7-10 story drop off a cliff into water without doing any damage to the wheelchair), I have some real estate to sell you in Florida). All that and a special guest appearance by Ronald McDonald. Hey, I'm a kid of the 80's. We loved Ronald McDonald. But, being a kid of the 70's and 80's I can guarantee you that this movie would bore us kids to death. Which is why it only made less than half of the estimated 13 million that it cost to make. (I don't know where they put the 13 million. It certainly didn't go into special effects.) It bombed even with us kids!!!
Wonderfully entertaining. Was not all what i was expecting. Great deal of humor and playfulness. The movie is present time being the 80's which i just loved! the hair the cars mcdonalds and especially SEARS! Wow what a blast! Great dance scenes from the era. It actually became very touching at the end and quite serious. The music was fantastic. It did what great movies do: it took you away from your life and made you apart of their life for a brief time.
Not THAT bad.
I never heard of "Mac and Me" until it came on TCM. It's not deserving of scathing reviews I googled. There's a certain poignancy to the movie. Some (not all) of the special effects were pretty bad, though.
