This was a good movie. Growing up in the 90's I found enjoying the silly comedies that pauly shore portrayed. Others might not like it and that's your opinion but I'm sure that some of these critics tell me one of their favorite movies I would probably say I dont like it. I see the point of critics. If you dont like the movie then don't like the movie I don't care why you don't. I say if you like a movie or want to see a movie then go see, and if you don't want to then dont. I'm not going to just not see a movie just because a critic doesn't like it. It's like saying if you don't like a certain critic then share with us and we won't read their post, and if you like them then we will read it. Critics keep your opinions to yourselves a lot people dont really care what you have to say

Encino Man is a special kind of bad that I didn't even know existed. Everything is so awful that to list all of the things wrong with this movie would be almost as big a waste of time as the movie itself.

I love this movie. It is a funny and quotable movie. Also, the soundtrack is "dope"!

This movie is so dumb but at the same time so funny, I laughed a lot while watching this movie, I would probably see this movie again and when I do I will laugh some more, I love the concept of a cave man and two people taking care of him and goofing around. I forgot to do the intro, so good hilarious movie starring the guy from the mummy, Sam from lord of the rings or bob from stranger things and some random guy who was hilarious.

This film really is a hit, Brendan Fraser really is outstanding. Pauly Shore constant use of the term 'weasing the ju-uice" makes the film a blast to watch. KEEP BEING A UNIQUE WEASEL, BUUUDDDYYYY. peace.

Stupid, but it has that undeniable nineties charm. You have to love it! (First and only viewing - 9/18/2008)

It's not the perfect comedy, but there is some heart and soul in this Pauly Shore classic!

"Encino Man" is sooooo 90's. It has everything that you would expect from a cheesy 90's comedy including various montages of a cavemen's antics in modern society (most stereotypically at an amusement park). We also get to see the caveman placed into a high school setting where he inevitably becomes popular, a museum where he sees his ancestors, and he even hijacks a car that ends up driving sideways, balanced on two wheels. And of course, no 90's high school film is complete without a prom scene. It subscribes to the dumb comedy formula established by "Wayne's World" but lacks the creativity and originality of its predecessors. Imagine the classic mall sequence from "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" for 90-minutes with only one character. The 33-day shooting schedule shows through hastily shot scenes and a lack of acting finesse. If you think that Brendan Fraser is overly slapstick as George of the Jungle, you haven't seen anything until you've seen him acting like a caveman that can barely speak a word. One of the biggest issues that people have with the film is Pauly Shore. I actually don't mind him since the majority of the film matches his signature airheadedness. It's amazing that people see his films and just accept his personality as typical of the 90's. More than anything, it helps me to better appreciate Shore's character in "A Goofy Movie." Sean Astin makes an okay protagonist but the real standout is Megan Ward as she makes "Robyn" into a genuinely likable character, something that is difficult to find in this story. "Encino Man" serves as evidence that an entire generation just accepted films comprised of random sequential montages and dance sequences loosely tied together by a plot. If you want to see an entertaining brainless comedy, stick to "Bill and Ted" or "Billy Madison."

I'm still wondering what our fascination was with Pauly Shore from 1992-1995, but it all started here. Mild comedy at best that really hasn't aged well.

Nifty flick - surprised i haven't seen it until now... but comical and keeps you entertained. The 3 main actors have good chemistry together and balance each other out and the characters balance each other out as well. Nothing to "write home to mom" about... but... yeah...

"If you liked Wayne's World, you'll love Encino Man!" Not sure I agree with the tagline for the movie, but Encino Man sure managed to entertain me with it's silly, goofy plot-line that includes Sean Astin, Brendon Fraser & Pauly Shore who surprisingly is less aggravating in this one than Bio-Dumb.

I can see the appeal had someone grown up with this but outside the target demographic of immaturity, this movie has nothing to offer.
