I Mean that literally!I was going through a rough time in my life, and Encino Man was the only thing that could make me laugh!Brendan Fraser was terrific, and I even learned how to like Pauly Shore after this movie...who up to this point I couldn't stand!I saw it 8 yes, that's EIGHT times at the theatre in a four week period when it was out, and have watched it dozens of times since on video. Despite it's absurd premise, the movie worked for me, in the relationships that developed between Link, Dave, and Stoney, and the little family the three of them made.It's goofy, <more>
it's at times stupid..and it's all around FUNNY! Just one of those little movies that if you will allow yourself to put reality on hold for 90 minutes, it can and will charm the socks off of you.
My favorite late night movie of all time. (by Jack the Ripper1888)
On weekends, after a long day of partying, I feel ready for a laugh. So, I put ENCINO MAN in the VCR and laugh myself silly. I have seen this movie so many times, that I could probably mimic the entire thing. Pauly Shore is a riot. And even better that they have him casted as a high school student. He's about ten years out of high school. But he is what makes the movie. Brendan Fraser wasn't really known all that well when he made this one. It pretty much began his career. See this if you are in a mood where everything seems funny to you. Those are the kinds of moods that make you <more>
pass out from laughing too hard. This one is definitely good for a laugh.....5/5.
I remember seeing this movie when it first came out and loving it, now almost a decade later I've bought it on DVD and love it again. This movie is one of my favourite movies now. I keep watching it on DVD and it just gets funnier as you get more. Paulie Shore makes the movie and Sean and Brendan are also great. If I was you I'd buy it on DVD. GREAT MOVIE
stoneage cutie (by sundiva)
I really like this movie. Maybe its ending is a little predictable, still it's good fun, easygoing and one of these movies you can watch over and over again. The characters are brilliant, Brendan Fraser's performance as an unfrozen stoneage guy in modern California is simply great. my absolute favourite scene is the one in the bathroom - no matter how often i watch it, it always makes me laugh.
Not all women will hate this movie (by Foberswife)
Encino Man is not just a "man's movie" I think there are many women that will enjoy seeing Branden Fraser go from frozen caveman to hot stud. Pauly Shore is great in this movie.Two HS students find a frozen caveman in a backyard, do they become friends with him or use him to get a girl the other is interested in? You will see how they "evolve" 'Link' into a somewhat normal student and how Link befriends almost everyone in the school.Of course you have the 'jock' who is determined to upset it all and bring 'link' down. Not only is it funny but <more>
you also have a little suspense - do they get caught or do they pull this whole farce off and get the girl? Am I going to tell you? No you need to get the movie and have a laugh.Great movie which I enjoy watching and seeing my 9 yr old laugh over also.
the one time when Pauly Shore did something good (by lee_eisenberg)
Obviously, any time that you have a story involving two Southern California teenagers think Bill and Ted , you know that the story's going to be completely goofy. "Encino Man" is a prime example. While high school dudes Dave Sean Astin and Stoney Pauly Shore are searching their backyard for pre-historic artifacts, they come across a caveman Brendan Fraser encapsulated in ice. They put the guy next to a furnace to thaw him out while they're at school, only he turns out to be alive. So, they proceed to try and teach him the early '90s, with varying degrees of <more>
success.True, the whole thing's completely silly, but it doesn't pretend to be anything else. It's too bad that Pauly Shore later branched out into pathetically idiotic movies like "Bio-Dome", because "Encino Man" is a laugh riot.
I expected the usual stoner-gross-out-high-school-comedy and had also heard that Pauly Shore was a comedic one-trick-pony I'd read about all those Razzies he had been awarded . Also, the premise of high-school kids finding a thawed-up "cro-magnon" man and becoming friends with him didn't bide well, so I kind of watched this out of completism and deep-rooted cinematic masochism. Turns out I was way off the mark. "Encino Man" is thoroughly enjoyable, and one of the best movies of its genre. And Pauly Shore is my god now, he really made this movie. Well, he may be a <more>
one-trick-comedian, but at least at he's the godfather of this one trick. The stoner-surfer-dude has been done ad nauseam in high-school comedies, but Pauly Shore is the stoner-surfer-dude to rule all other stoner-surfer-dudes. His figure is not just funny and dude-ish, but also eccentric and frail almost a bit camp . When I read that he comes from a family of comedians, I wasn't surprised. I see a lot of comedic and dramatic talent in him, and it's a shame that he seems to have fallen out of favour recently.Anyway, the movie. Luckily, the pretty goofy plot doesn't put it in harm's way. Two likable social dropouts find a stone age survivor in their back yard, and decide to smuggle him into their school in order to heighten their own peer standing. This goes terribly awry when the hunky pre-human becomes a hit with the ladies. Man seems to be set in atavistic struggle against pre-human and stoner dude , but luckily they eventually find their moral bearings: the humans learn the benefits of sticking together from their thawed-out friend, and the cro-magnon learns to go "halfies" on his microwave burrito.Like I said, I really enjoyed Pauly Shore here. He made this movie. The other actors are also good, there's great dialogue, and the babes are babe-alicious. I also enjoyed the fact that the underdogs were the protagonists here.To give you a ballpark comparison, it's au pair with Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Yes, it's that good, buuuh-dy.
Aiight guys this is my first review and I wanna keep it short. I just wanted to say that this movie is surprisingly good and actually pretty funny. This is coming from a 25 year old movie buff who normally only finds interest in super deep, complex, and thought provoking movies. This has taught me that movies don/t always have to be deep or complex to be good. There is so much wrong with this movie and most of it has no basis in reality and yet it is easy to overcome this obstacle and just enjoy it for what it is. There is some hilarious moments in this movie and Brendan definitely steals the <more>
show with a great performance. Pauley Shore was pretty funny as well as the typical 90's stoner with the surfer vibe. As for Sean I had no idea he had been anything but Sam from LOTR. I just wanna say I believe that most of the people who rated this poorly prolly have a very weak sense of humor and most likely embraced the whole "Just say No" Nancy Reagan campaign to shocking proportions. All in all, simple and funny, and successfully captures the 90's grunge and stoner era, as well as the life of high school kids and their obstacles. 8/10.
The Wieze, the Hobbit, and the quiet American (by StevePulaski)
The buddy comedies critics hate I wind up liking or loving. Encino Man is the case of bad reception from critics, but cult following from Pauly fans. I've been a fan of Pauly's work for a while. I really enjoyed Bio-Dome, I liked In The Army Now, I liked Adopted, I liked Pauly Shore is Dead, but I wasn't so happy with Jury Duty. Yes Pauly Shore is overly goofy, but he defines the early nineties. Nostalgia - that kind of thing makes people go nuts.Another reason I enjoy the film is because this is something I could see Corey Haim and Corey Feldman two of my favorite actors doing. <more>
Sean Astin, at this time, looked a lot like Corey Haim. Throw Feldman in the picture and replace Pauly in would be a great film. It still is funny. The downside is so much more could've been done with this plot.The film doesn't take the most realistic route even though the plot is already unrealistic. Makes a whole lot of sense doesn't it? If you were a caveman, frozen for hundreds of years, and you thawed and came back to life, wouldn't you want to explore the world at it's fullest instead of being lead around a high school by two bumbling teenagers? I almost feel bad for the guy. He has to live through High School after being frozen for several hundred years. Talk about bad century after bad century.The plot: Two high school outcasts named Dave and Stoney Astin and Shore from Encino, California are attempting to construct a pool in Dave's backyard when they come across a caveman frozen in a block of ice. They leave him in the garage with the heat cranked up to thaw him out. The caveman, now named Linkavich "Link" Chomofsky Fraser now interacts with the world around him as Dave and Stoney take him to school.Dave's dreamgirl Robyn Sweeny Ward is wooed by Link and starts to like him. Not part of the plan. Dave wanted to ask Robyn to prom, but what stands in his way is a heartless jock named Matt played by DeLuise, who utters one of "the greatest movie insults of all time" according to a Youtube video .The film relies on a lot of nineties comedy clichés and doesn't really attempt to be fresh in anyway, but like I said before, I'm a sucker for these eighties and nineties buddy films. Richard Masur, Mr. Anderson from one of my favorite comedies License to Drive, plays a the father of Dave in this film acting pretty much like he did in that movie. Masur has a good father figure approach to him and is great like he was in License to Drive.Les Mayfield directed Encino Man and this film seems like the only thing in his filmography that I would vouch for. I saw The Man and didn't feel that was good enough. Other titles like Blue Streak, Codename: The Cleaner, and Flubber don't really interest me. But it seems pretty much all of Mayfield's filmography is filled with duds.Encino Man almost seems like a Corey Haim and Corey Feldman film that they couldn't do because they got too old. One of the reasons I like it and the fact that the characters are like my friend and I when we get into a sticky situation. It's movies like this they sort of make me wish I was a nineties kid.Starring: Sean Astin, Pauly Shore, Brendan Fraser, Megan Ward, Michael DeLuise, and Richard Masur. Directed by: Les Mayfield.
