Trivia

This film ends with a freeze frame and the superimposed title "We'll be back!" It was such a dismal box office failure that the proposed sequel was never made. See more »

some things to think about.
10 February 2000 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

1. One of the lead characters spends the entire film in a MacDonald's uniform (and looks pretty good in it I might add).

2. There is an extended song and dance sequence, that gets way out of hand, taking place inside and outside. . . MacDonald's.

3. There is an extended cameo by Ronald. . . MacDonald.

4. The Alien and the movie is called. . .MAC.

5. The Aliens are saved by drinking Coca Cola.

6. This movie stinks.

7. This film fall under the "barely legal ripoff" category for its shameless mirroring of ET.

7. This movie might be fun if you make a drinking game out of it. Have a sip (of soda of course) every time you see blatant product placement. Unfortunately, you'll need a trip to the ER by the end of the movie (from the sugar in the soda).
