In the fallout shelter, the father sets up a mock television with
a film projector and a rear projection screen. He makes a point of saying that it uses a mirror, and the image (an episode of "The Honeymooners") is shown reversed. However, with that setup (which was relatively common back in the 1970s) the image would be normal, not reversed, because viewing through the rear screen is the second reversal. See more »

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.
