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 »

That's pretty much it. "Blast from the Past" has a decent amount of laughs and fun. Brandon and Alicia are adorable together. And the story is very original and interesting. Adam is a boy who grew up in a bomb shelter with his parents, who fear that a nuclear bomb struck from the cold war. For 35 years they raise Adam to be a perfect gentleman. When he wants to meet a lady and the parents need more suplies for the shelter, they send him up to face the world of the 90's. He meets a girl, Eve. She seems cold at first, but they both fall for each other.
The story lacks a little something in some area. I thought they maybe should've gotten more into the love story, because I felt like it was too quick. But this is a cute and wonderful film. I would recommend for romantic comedy type of lovers. They would more than likely get into the film.
