It has been said that in the restaurant in the 1965 scene, the woman asks her son for a Cherry Coke and that Cherry Coke wasn't created until 1985. However, in the 50's and 60's, a popular drink was a Cherry Coke, using plain Coca-Cola and adding maraschino cherries and (sometimes) cherry juice. See more »
Now hold on, hold on just a minute! In the first place I do not fall in love with weirdos who I've only known for four or five days!
Yes you do.
And I don't fall in love with grown men who collect baseball cards!
Yes you do.
Or pee in their pants when they see the ocean!
Yes you do.

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)
