During the dance sequence at Club 40s, Brendan Fraser's stunt double is obviously a double, during the more strenuous moves. They look very alike, especially as to their hair, but the double's face is partially visible at times. See more »

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)
