Not that washed-up hack pauly shore has ever made a good movie, but this movie is an absolute abortion of filmmaking. Brendan Fraser should try to forget he was ever associated with this piece of garbage.

Still as funny as it was eleven years ago

"Long before The Mummy...long before The Lord of the Rings...Brendan Fraser and Sean Astin appeared in a silly movie called Encino Man -- along with crazy perpetual teenager Pauly Shore. And long before I grew up and got married and worried about my career, this was one of my favorite movies.And, as I recently discovered, it still is.Astin and Shore play Dave and Stoney, two high school kids who dig up a frozen caveman (Fraser) while trying to dig a pool in Dave's back yard (in an attempt to graduate from high school as two popular guys...guys who the girls find irresistible...guys who somehow convinced their parents that it was okay to dig a big hole behind their expensive California home). The caveman thaws, and Dave and Stoney turn him into a buff California high school student -- who, as far as anyone knows, is Linkavich (Link, short for Missing Link), an exchange student from Estonia. The plan, as Dave sees it, is to use their caveman to pick up chicks -- especially Robin, the girl of his dreams. But it all backfires when the girls start falling for Link instead...Okay, I'll admit that this movie is unrealistic and totally ridiculous. But that's exactly why I love it. After watching it again -- for the first time in years -- I still laughed so hard that I almost fell off my chair. And I was reminded that many of the silly quotes that I still recite repeatedly originally came from this movie (and, believe me, there are plenty of great lines to choose from). Despite the fact that I've grown up (or at least grown older), I still like it as much as I did eleven years ago -- and I'm proud to say that it's the newest DVD in my collection."
A must see

"it is an fantastic concept for a movie plot. just how much trouble can a frozen man from the past get in? this man is even less refined than tarzan but has a better sense of humour. if your feeling down and want a pick me up this is a must see."

"This is the best movie. I'm a little partial to Pauly being from his home town, but this movie would be a favorite of mine even I wasn't. You will ROLL on the floor, whether you love him or hate him, he and Brendan Fraser and Sean Austin make a great team!"
