An average movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but, to be honest, I have to admit it that it was actually not bad at all after all.

In the early 1960s, America was in the grip of Cold War paranoia. Calvin Webber was more paranoid than most and built his family a huge bomb shelter. Mistaking a plane crash for a nuclear attack, he moved his family to the shelter, where son Adam was born and spent the first 30 years of his life. When Adam finally emerges, he knows nothing of the contemporary world. He is a man out of time. Then he meets Eve: young, feisty and cynical, she is definitely a woman of her time. But the more Eve watches Adam's innocence and incomprehension of the strange world around him, the more she begins to find herself falling in love.

"Pros: Dumb (to say the least) but in a totally guilty pleasure sort of way; much more entertaining than I expected it to be; amusingly "90's"; Brendan Fraser (who vaguely reminds me of Tom Hanks in this role; he even sort of looks like Hanks here) makes "Adam" quite likable and for the most part endearing (an accomplishment, since I imagine the character COULD have come across as rather nauseating); Christopher Walken and Sissy Spacek are also fun to watch as Adam's parents (who are almost as de"
