Review

Our Score
After ET's jaunt to our planet captured the hearts of Earthlings of all ages, it was only to be expected that he would be followed by a positive star fleet of cute critters from outer space. Mac was not one of the more endearing, although there are moments when his relationship with Jade Calegory (a genuine spina bifida sufferer, who gives a natural and courageous performance) is quite touching. However, director Stewart Raffill's film is otherwise an unashamed rip-off of Spielberg's classic and will only be remembered as the picture that gave product placement (ie in-movie advertising) a bad name.

Summary

A small alien becomes stranded on Earth. As he tries to avoid the authorities, he befriends a wheelchair-bound boy and survives on a diet of junk food. Comedy, starring Christine Ebersole, Jonathan Ward and Jade Calegory.
