I've decided I loathe the word "celebrate".

You're "celebrating" the 29th anniversary of the release of a crappy movie? How about "remembering", because that's what people mean now when they say "celebrating", especially if your celebration is posting a single captioned photo. That's not a celebration, that's a photo op. When was the party? Was it catered? Did you have a big sign made that said "Hooray for Encino Man 29 years ago!"

I'm betting no.

I liked it, but it was too much Dead Poets Society meets Fisher King. (Both good films, but two good things do not make good things. Pizza and chocolate mousse, for example)

Hi there, all of you are wrong

In the sequel they discover that he's not a caveman, he's the son of a real estate magnate who disappeared in 1932 and he's simply brain damaged from being frozen for 70 some years.  Now that he's "alive" again, it turns out he owns much of the most valuable real estate in Southern California, but his great grand-nephew has something to say about that.  Hijinks ensue.

Unironically his best movie was God's and Monsters with Sir Ian McKellen. I also quite enjoyed The Quiet Americanwith Michael Caine (though I think the book is better)

I didn't see the twist coming until the big reveal, exactly like the writers and director wanted it.  So when they did reveal what was going on, I WAS farkING FLOORED!  Some of the best dramatic character development, writing, dialog... and it was in a comedy.

In  the first movie she was a cute, nerd girl, in the second she was a dark makeup, badass girl. Both are equally valid.

I like Pauly Shore movies, they are stupid fun for 1 1/2 hours. The only thing I don't like is that I've heard he is a jerk in real life.

I was browsing movies the other day and saw he was in one in 2020 playing what I could imagine would be a version of his real-life self called Guest House. Could be fun.

Fark is a weird place sometimes with some of the hatred towards mundane things and people.
 
2022-05-22 5:22:08 PM  
It was a sweet, silly, goofy movie, and I loved it for not tying any 'messaging' or deep meaning to the movie. They just let the goofiness happen and I appreciate that. I have my doubts about a sequel, thirty years is a pretty massive gap between movies.

Are they going to have Link and his Cave Chick acclimatized totally into modern society with boring jobs, a mortgage, 2.5 kids, and all that comes with it? If they go that way I think it would bomb, but I'm not sure what Link and his mate's arc would/should be but I don't see them doing the 9 to 5 in Cali. Maybe they go to a state with a smaller population and sort of go Mountain Man(and Mountain chick) and that might work.

There are times when the window to do something passes and this may be the case here. It might be better if they walked away from a sequel, there are too many ways they could fark it up.

This'll make me sound like an old fogey well before my time but I thought that movie looked dumb even when it was aimed at me. Is it any good?

Count me on the Gods and Monsters team. I haven't seen it in a few years, but it's a good one to revisit every now and again. Solid performances all around.
