The all time stupidest movie...
3 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

.....in the history of all time stupid movies.

I watched this with some close friends, back in the summer of 1989 when it first came out on video. Out of deference to the young children who were were seated on the carpeted floor watching the film (and actually enjoying it), we adults stifled our laughter, and wiped our tears as quietly as we knew how.

Mac and Me was just plain dumb. Beyond dumb. Beyond the valley of the SHADOW of dumb. What a dog of a movie.

What really got me, aside from the McDonald's dance scene, was the overt commercial advertising. McDonald's, of course. I understand how a hack-company like McDonalds would be willing to tie themselves to such a stupid project.

But Coca COLA?

Coca Cola should be ashamed of themselves for plugging their sugar water so shamelessly. (In case you don't remember, Coke was featured throughout the film, and in the end it was the magical cure for whatever was ailing the goofy aliens.)

Good gosh. I can't believe I just wasted 60 seconds of my life posting a review of Mac and Me. (Shakes head sadly)
