Ridiculous 90's teen movie

I've known about this silly movie since around the time it was released, but I didn't have the "pleasure" of watching it until recently. Before I found it on YouTube, though, I'd almost forgotten that it existed; I also forgot (or never knew in the first place) that Brendan Fraser was in it (the same goes for Sean Astin).

Anyhow, not only is Fraser in 'Encino Man' -- he PLAYS the "... read more

Stoney and Dave find a caveman (Link) trapped in ice, thaw him out, and show him around town. Although Link is slow to catch on to basic concepts of 20th century life, he has no trouble impressing all the girls and helping Stoney and Dave find the coolness they've been searching for.
Release date: 22 May 1992

" Director: Les Mayfield His 1st movie My 4th movie (somehow) watched from the director This is clearly from people who have very little experience with directing, writing, and editing. The high concept is actually good, but the execution was a misfire in an all categories. Strangely people blamed Pauly Shore, but he is actually the only funny part about the movie. Not all of his stuff lands, but he makes it watchable. I also happen to be a fan of his other work, I may not be a snob? Ad"

" First Viewing Viewing Date: March 17th Via: iTunes Store Plot: When they find a frozen caveman in their back yard, two high school outcasts thaw him and introduce him to modern life while he in turn gets them to actually enjoy life. Rating: 6.5/10 Why Did I Watch It? It features two actors who won Oscars this week, and social media has been rife with posts about it, so I had to check it out."

DVD Pickups Fall/Winter 2022 (45 movies items)

"Encino Man is one of those teen movies from the early 90's that's just endlessly rewatchable. Brendan Fraser just killing it this year with this and School Ties. I also think this might be the first real break out movie for Pauly Shore doing his signature character. Either way it's currently not available on Blu-ray, so it needs to be in the collection."

Movies I've Streamed Outside of Netflix (180 movies items)

"Pros: Lame and silly, yet harmless -- and VERY "90's" (case in point: there's a montage set to "I'm Too Sexy"); Sean Astin makes a convincing dork (even if he doesn't really look like a teenager); the obviously choreographed dance at the end. Cons: Pauly Shore; annoying lines such as "Don't wheeze the juice!"; it's a movie about two high school geeks who find a caveman in a backyard and manage to pass the caveman off as an exchange student (with none of their parents or teachers ever suspecting"
