Having gotten a taste of college life, a drastically changed farm girl returns home for Thanksgiving break with her best friend, a flamboyant party animal who is clearly a fish out of water in a small farm town.
At an archaeological dig in the ancient city of Hamunaptra, an American serving in the French Foreign Legion accidentally awakens a mummy who begins to wreck havoc as he searches for the reincarnation of his long-lost love.
Adam Weber is the child of an eccentric inventor and his wife. Following a bomb scare in the 1960s that locked the Webers in their bomb shelter for 35 years, Adam Weber must venture out into Los Angeles and obtain food and supplies for his family. He meets Eve, who reluctantly agrees to help him out.Written by
In keeping with the theme that the late 90s are a "new world" for the Webers, the main characters are named Adam and Eve. Other characters also have mythical names, such as Helen and Troy. The name Weber is German for "weaver," which may suggest the unusual way in which these characters' lives are woven together. See more »

In the U.K. the widescreen version of the VHS runs 10 minutes longer than the pan n' scan version. Additional scenes include:
When Calvin goes up to the world for the first time in 35 years, he sees a guy looking for food in bins.
When Adam and Eve tell his parents to shut the locks for 2 months, the scene goes on where they ask them to at least stay for dinner. Here, we see Calvin telling Adam a joke, Eve helping out in the kitchen, Adam getting a brief explanation about human reproduction and Eve telling Helen that she's from Pasadena.
Brendan Fraser and Alicia Silverstone are on screen gems in their aptly named characters Adam and Eve. Everything about "Blast From The Past" was superb from the casting of Christopher Walken, Sissy Spacek and Dave Foley to the outstanding performances by everyone made this film so enjoyable.
I could not find one thing wrong with this film because it was that good. Everything in this film was a breath of fresh air and I'm glad I saw this film. Through this movie, it has given me respect for Walken, who has become one of my favorite actors in Hollywood.
The performances by the cast were real and honest. Also, everyone seemed to enjoy each other's company as well as performing in this movie and it showed; furthermore, it also showed up in the box office and rental receipts as people couldn't get enough of this great comedy.
"Blast From The Past" is a worthwhile comedy that deserves everyone's attention. Two thumbs WAY up.
