Mystery Science Theater 3000: MAC AND ME   Rewatch 
March 30, 2023 3:37 PM - Season 12, Episode 1 - Subscribe

Rewatch! A disturbingly malleable, bubble-gum-like alien and their family get stuck on Earth and befriend a wheelchair-riding boy in this notable box-office failure. Chris Pratt seems to like it though! Season 12 ties Season 7 for the shortest season of MST3K. This is the first episode of "The Gauntlet," a series of MST3K episodes designed to be binged, although that'd be over nine hours of riffed film, so good luch surviving that. Unlike the previous episodes, I only posted each MST3K episode from Season 12 once, so less of a retread this time! Previously.

ACK it's not Chris Pratt who likes this movie, it's Paul Rudd. All you white male actors look the same to me.

And he doesn't even like the movie, it's just that he has a bit with Conan O'Brien where he keeps presenting one scene from this movie, that looks ridiculous out of context, as coming from his most recent creative project.

The wildest thing to me is that the director swears the McDonald's dance sequence wasn't product placement.

On Rudd, he willingly made showing a clip from the movie a running gag for 17 years. I wouldn't say he exactly hates it.

Rudd even managed to extend this joke to Conan's podcast, telling Conan he'd brought a clip from his own new podcast which was... yes, the audio from that scene.

With a quick Danny Cooksey cameo as astonished kid in car!
