MAC and Me Reviews

May 14, 2013
It's an amazingly bald-faced copy of E. T. even though this is E. T. in a sticky wrapper, left under the heater two hours too long.

Everything about MAC and Me -- not least the fact that it's fairly well-made and involving -- smacks of crass calculation. The filmmakers even have the gall, in the movie's parting shot, to announce a sequel.

Mac and Me is a 99-minute commercial occasionally interrupted by a not-so-good children`s movie.

Give the kids a break; take them to something else.

If you made a film about a homesick extraterrestrial befriended by a little boy, would you dare to have the creature look like E. T.'s cousin?

So why is it so hard to like this film? Having seen it done so much better by Spielberg doesn't help, of course.
