The Rufus Project Redeeming Features Cast: Mac and Me (1988)

Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Mac and Me from 1988.  Is it a freshly grilled take on the cute alien genre, or is it a mass produced MacMovie?

How does Ronald McDonald fare in his movie debut?  Can you replace a bicycle with a wheelchair?  Was that dance number necessary?  Did Steven Spielberg send lawyers?  Is this movie redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

Did we miss any redeeming features?  Do you think we were too generous or unfair?  Do you have a suggestion, or a challenge, for us to take on in the future?  Then get in touch with us by either leaving a comment on our homepageFacebook or Twitter, or email us at
