Come this August, it will be the 20 year anniversary of a landmark film: the biggest E.T. ripoff in history funded by McDonald's. If you've seen E.T., you know the story. But instead of Reese's Pieces, Mac drinks Coke and eats skittles. Instead of a bicycle, the kid is in a wheelchair. Instead of a score by John Williams, you have a score by Alan Silvestri (Back to the Future).
If you never heard of this film, you're lucky. But for fun, here's some clips that are absolute GOLD.
The Infamous Wheelchair Scene (hilarious)
Ronald McDonald introduces the film in this theatrical trailer:
The Full McDonald's Dance Scene. In this scene, there's a birthday party at MCDonald's. Mac is dressed up in a teddy bear outfit and everyone thinks he's a plush toy... despite the fact that he has crazy long arms and scary eyes. The government agents come to hunt down Mac but they distract them with a dance number. Even the high school football team gets involved! Must be seen to be believed. Ronald McDonald earned a razzie for Worst New Actor in this film.
In closing, I present the "SCARY" edit of the Mac and Me trailer.
So who else remembers this lousy movie??
