Overly whimsical soundtrack means "safe for kids"

My favorite moment in "Mac and Me" is in the scene where Mac and friends discover his dead family in a cave. There's the argument that his family is just exhausted from hiking through a harsh and alien world looking for the missing Mac since they are immediately revived by taking a few slurps of Coca-Cola. But you have to consider that when they're first discovered, those aren't actors in suits laying on a dusty stage floor; they're prop aliens. Inanimate casts just laying there in the dark with their eyes wide open staring up at a godless ceiling. It's eerie for a kid's movie to see the rag covered husks of what was alive just laying there.
The message of the scene is clear; Coca-Cola brings them back from the dead.
The most belongiest belonging that ever belonged here.
I saw E.T. in the theater and I saw this in the theater. I'm a lot more glad about seeing this.
I just got to the vacuum cleaner scene. Holy shit.
32:30 for those interested.

so finally I get tzo this film
The exuberantly overelaborate McDonald's, complete with Ronald McDonald entertaining a full Playplace.
At the end, Mac is wearing a McKids muscle shirt.
I watched this out of curiosity a few years ago.
Seeing the McDonalds birthday party dancing scene was so surreal. I mean the whole movie was terrible, sure, and hearing so much shameless product placement (I recall a scene where a girl says sarcastically in reference to a girl a guy has a crush on "Why don't you go to McDonalds and get her a Big Mac.") was unnerving to say the least, but that scene just took the cake. Like, I couldn't believe I was seeing it, in something someone unironically made and that people actually paid to watch in a movie theater. I can't even begin to fathom what everyone present besides the director was thinking when it came time to do it, and what all the actors must of thought about the end result of what they'd been cast for.
This very much belongs here and belongs on every "Worst films ever" list everywhere.
