Starring Pauly Shore, ENCINO MAN unearths the biggest laughs in 2 million years! The fun kicks off when two high school buddies dig up a frozen caveman in their backyard! Once the living fossil thaws out, the friends figure he's their ticket to being cool. But the plan backfires when the newcomer turns everyday life upside down, generating pre-hysterical craziness wherever he roams! Co-starring Sean Astin and Brendan Fraser, you'll definitely dig ENCINO MAN -- the totally irreverent, totally awesome comedy that shows just how hilariously out-of-control things evolve once the Stone Age meets the rock age head-on!

Critics Consensus: Encino Man isn't the first unabashedly silly comedy to embrace its stupidity and amass a cult following, but whether or not it works for you will largely be determined by your tolerance for Pauly Shore.

Common Sense Says
Silly teen comedy has some Neanderthal behavior.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this silly teen sex comedy is heavy on objectifying girls' bodies, showing them in skimpy clothes and talking about girls' body parts. Characters also do some things that parents wouldn't want their kids to do: They lie to their parents, they use their friends to become more popular, they steal a car, they go to a bar, they break into school, and break into a house. There's also some swearing and comic violence.
