Mac and Me is a 1988 children's fantasy film directed by Stewart Raffill. A young, wheelchair-ridden boy named Eric Cruise (Jade Calegory) has just moved to a new town where he doesn't know anyone. On top of this social trouble, Eric's father has just passed away and he is in need of a friend. Meanwhile, at a nearby NASA base, a Mysterious Alien Creature, henceforth known as MAC, escapes after his parents are captured by United States government agents. On the run from the men in black, MAC encounters Eric and it turns out they were both just what the other one needed. The two strike up a fast friendship and go on a wild adventure searching for MAC's parents. The film is notable for its overt product placement. For example, the only foods MAC seems to be able to eat are Skittles and Coca-cola. This element of the film gained MAC and Me several Razzie award nominations.
