* RetroactiveRecognition: Creator/JenniferAniston has [[http://www.manic-expression.com/is-jennifer-aniston-in-mac-and-me/ confirmed]] that she was an extra in this film, but there's debate over whether you can actually see her in it. In the [=McDonald's=] scene there are a couple quick shots of a girl who vaguely looks like her, but in an interview she says she appeared in a picnic scene, and there's no picnic scene in the film, so it may well have ended up as a DeletedScene.

** This [[http://www.denofgeek.com/us/movies/17338/10-alternate-interpretations-of-mac-and-me Den of Geek! article]] puts forth a number of tongue-in-cheek re-interpretations of the film (like it being an unofficial kid-friendly remake of ''Film/TheManWhoFellToEarth'') that are actually quite plausible. Basically, this article puts way more thought into ''MAC and Me'' than the filmmakers ever did.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: WebVideo/{{Phelous}} seemed to think that the aliens were in fact dangerous. He even reedited the footage, turning ''Mac and Me'' into a horror film.

* AwesomeMusic: Creator/AlanSilvestri's score is ''way'' better than the movie deserves, something even stated in the liner notes for the score album ([[http://www.quartetrecords.com/mac-and-me.html which finally came out in 2014]]). [[http://www.mp3va.com/alan-silvestri-mac-and-me-remastered-2014-r507181 It can be bought for only three dollars here, at perfect quality]].

* NeverLiveItDown: Known solely as a blatant ripoff of ''E.T.'' and for its many aggressive product placements.

** In Spanish-speaking countries, Eric's EurekaMoment with the windmills ("It's the straws, that's it!") is the only thing anyone ever remembers this movie. [[spoiler:The literal translation of straws (''pajas'' or ''pajillas'') is also slang for masturbation.]]

* RootingForTheEmpire: it's pretty easy to sympathize with the feds in this movie. Similarly to the AlternativeCharacterInterpretation above, our heroes keep telling them that the aliens aren't going to hurt anyone, even though they've done almost nothing but cause mischief at the best and act like wild animals at the worst. Oh, and one of them gets hold of a ''gun''. Any attempt at bringing them under control is justified.

* ValuesDissonance: To a modern audience, giving your kid a birthday party at [=McDonald=]'s seems like a passive-aggressive way to tell him or her that you hate their guts, but back in TheEighties, [=McDonald=]'s parties were ''very'' popular and were one of the best parties a kid could get. And Ronald [=McDonald=] showing up at the parties like he does in the film was not unheard of -- professional clowns/party entertainers across the country played him, each one handling a certain region, making public appearances at schools, baseball games, etc.
