Yesterday I headed down to the 92Y Tribeca for the final installment of their ‘Rip-off Cinema’ series. A series of films that clearly are rip-offs of bigger and better movies. Last night I had the pleasure (not sure that is really the right word for it) of watching Mac and Me. A movie about a Mysterious Alien Creature (MAC) trying to escape from NASA that is befriended by a young boy in a wheel chair. Yes, seriously.
The movie is clearly is rip off of E.T. The plot is basically the same, so we don’t really need to get into any of that. I’m going to, instead, point out some of the horrific highlights of the film.
