MAC AND ME (Theatrical Release USA 1988)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì 

Mac and Me
—personable—reminds one a bit of ET: Extraterrestrial because it relies on a similar story of a small extraterrestrial who makes friends with children, but the likeness ends there. While ET: Extraterrestrial has a better script and its own special spark, Mac and Me easily earns its watch as a terrific child/adult share and has a particularly pleasing conclusion. In some ways the movie seems a bit trite with its new home/new adventure storyline, but heart and kindness shines throughout the movie and excuses that. It earns it watch as a comfortable night out with the family watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Not as good as ET: Extraterrestrial, but in its own way serves as a good, clean child/adult watch.
