When they find a frozen caveman in their backyard, two high school outcasts thaw him out and introduce him to modern day life - while he in turn gets them to actually enjoy life.
This was one of Brendan Fraser's earliest films, and being a big fan of his work, I was keen to give this one a go. While not being particularly profound or revolutionary, or even logical, Encino Man was good innocent fun and I really enjoyed it. It was rather funny seeing the main character, played by Sean Astin (Sam from Lord of the Rings) as a moping, 'uncool' teenager from the early nineties and Brandan Fraser doing just as good a caveman as he did a jungle man. I'm just glad he made the Mummy series as well or he might have been typecast in not-really-speaking-english roles.
