March 21, 2014
Fraser is the sweet, goofy engine that drives this movie. The script doesn't do enough with his reactions to a world that bears little relation to the Cold War planet Adam has been told about, but Fraser still manages to suggest volumes.
March 21, 2014
Thanks to a clever script, tight direction, a first-rate cast and the dynamite combination of Brendan Fraser and Alicia Silverstone, Blast from the Past blows away the recent crop of romantic comedies.
March 21, 2014
Despite its faintly mechanical construction, Blast From The Past is very classy, and the improbable comic duo of Spacek and Walken provide the manic edge. Silverstone is good, engagingly grouchy but Fraser is indeed a blast.
March 21, 2014
Blast From the Past doesn't overtax Fraser's abilities -- the film is only a sweet comic confection -- but director and co-writer Hugh Wilson does rely on a rare quality that Fraser has in spades: charm.
March 21, 2014
Blast From the Past has a sweet, joyful spirit and some fun performances.
March 21, 2014
This fresh idea delivers some scintillating humor.
March 21, 2014
It's pleasant enough, with Fraser's goofy charm particularly winning.
March 21, 2014
Blast From the Past hits all the right notes.
March 21, 2014
In Blast From the Past, Brendan Fraser certainly fits in the title role. He's a blast -- goofy, wide-eyed and romantic, continuing his impeccable streak of making OK movies (including this one) far more watchable than they should be.
March 21, 2014
Ultimately, this is a culture clash movie between two eras of American life. Without advocating a complete return to innocence, Blast From the Past is a gentle reminder of what Americans may have lost by growing so jaded.
March 21, 2014
Blast From the Past is no message movie, but it has a few good points to make, and does so with a gentle, observant wit.
September 7, 2011
What's good in Blast From the Past is so inventive and what's bad is so blinkered that the best way to describe this fascinating, failed romantic comedy may be as a movie blown to hell.

The movie takes a few small belly-flops now and then but is quite enjoyable.

The broad obvious jokes are generally tossed away with a panache that might be mistaken for subtlety; the performances are affable; and there's even the odd surprise along the way.
April 9, 2005
Stellar supporting performances by Walken and Spacek help keep the quality high in Blast from the Past.

...entertains without pretensions.

Fraser is full of charm and good-natured innocence, and he and Silverstone spark well together.
