Trivia:
This is the second movie in which Alicia Silverstone and Christopher Walken starred together; "Excess Baggage" (1997) was the first.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): The whole premise of the Movie is based on Adam being raised in a pristine environment and taught only the finest manors. During the introduction to Heather at 1 hour and 13 minutes into the movie, Adam extends his hand in friendship. This is completely out of character for any gentleman. He awaits the lady to take the first move - always. It is the lady's prerogative to offer her hand or not.See more »

Relax and enjoy a trip to the past!, 4 April 2004
Author: amarkey from Lebanon, Pa.

Need an escape? Here's your ticket! This is a delightful movie depicting life in the past and the shock one can get when fast forwarding to the future. There's something about gong back in time! For those of us who lived thru the 60s as teens, it's a reminder of a more innocent time. Seeing the past come alive in the form of music, baseball cards and even the furniture makes you feel like a window has been opened and you're actually watching family life in the early 60s. Watching the reactions of a full grown man who has been in a fallout shelter with his parents, now coming above ground for the first time is hilarious! Seeing him search for a "non-mutant" girl friend while he learns all about life above ground, is just as funny. You have two choices. You can watch the movie as a critic and look for things that you think "don't work" in the movie.....or, you can relax and enjoy the trip, the jokes, the characters and the trip back to the present! That's what I do, every chance I have to see this "Blast From The Past."
