"Encino Man" (1992) is an uproarious teen comedy. Sean Astin is Dave, a high-school student who desperately wants to be popular. Pauley Shore is Stoney, his spaced-out buddy. While digging a pit in Astin's backyard, an earthquake uncovers a frozen caveman, played by Brendan Fraser. The two friends thaw him out, give him a shower, and show him the ropes at their high school, dubbing their Neanderthal buddy Link. Fraser quickly becomes the most popular guy in school, and manages to show the two friends a thing or two about life.
