‘Mac and Me’ 30-Second Summary

A NASA spacecraft lands on an unknown planet. While it resembles Southern California, it is definitely not, so the craft collects rock and soil samples. A family of quite aliens discover it, and are sucked up through its vacuum (which is their one true weakness).

The craft then takes off with the family, and is heads back to Earth. The aliens escape from a military base, but during melee, the youngest alien is separated from his family. He hides in a passing van, occupied by a wheelchair-bound boy named Eric Cruise, his older brother, Michael, and their single mother, Janet, who are moving to California.

One day, Eric falls off a cliff, and he hurls into a lake while in his wheelchair – apparently just yards from his suburban Cali home. The little alien sees his plight, and he rescues Eric. Eric tells people the truth of what happened, but no one believes him. Eric sets a trap with the help of Debbie, because she is the only other person who sees the alien. They capture, and then release the alien. Eric’s brother Michael now believes Eric, but the alien disappears again, and they cannot convince their mom he’s real.
