In keeping with the theme that the late 90's are a "new world" for the Webbers, the main characters are named Adam and Eve. See more »
At the end of the movie, when Calvin is taking about setting the locks for 10 years, he is standing at the (one and only) door to do so. Adam and Eve appear from farther inside the shelter. But there is no other door. How did they get in? See more »
I'm sick of working for that dickhead.

What a wonderful film! "Blast from the Past" is charming, sweet, and hilarious. Very funny. The premise is original and interesting, and I thought the film was engrossing and thoroughly entertaining -- I laughed out loud several times. Brendan Fraser is perfectly cast as the goofy, innocent Adam. Alicia Silverstone is better than she's ever been, I'm certainly no fan of her, but she did a more than okay job in this film. But the really ingenious casting decision was to give the roles of Adam's parents to Sissy Spacek and the always brilliant Christopher Walken -- I dare say that the casting of Spacek and Walken in this film is the _opposite_ of type casting, :-).
I really, really liked this film because it is genuinely entertaining, and it is never boring. Brilliant comedy in other words. (8/10)
