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 pass out from laughing too hard. This one is definitely good for a laugh.....5/5.
