Description by Wikipedia

Mac and Me is a 1988 American science fiction adventure film co-written (with Steve Feke) and directed by Stewart Raffill. The film is about a "Mysterious Alien Creature" (MAC) that escapes from nefarious NASA agents and is befriended by a boy who uses a wheelchair due to paraplegia. Together, they try to find MAC's family, from whom he has been separated. The film stars Jade Calegory (in his only film appearance), Christine Ebersole, Jonathan Ward, Katrina Caspary, and Lauren Stanley.

The decision to create the film was based solely on the success of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982). The title comes from the working title for E.T. — E.T. and Me. Some have considered it to be one of the worst films ever made, although it has become a cult classic.
