Yes, the plot is insanely inconceivable and not believable, but still: "Encino Man" is actually funny. And I loved Pauly Shore in this-- he is incredibly over the top and insane, which I tend to love in actors. He works as the comic relief in this not so believable film. I didn't really like Sean Astin in "Encino Man", though I did like him in Lord of the Rings; he just isn't one for the funny movies. And I do really like Brandan Fraser (George of the Jungle? TOTALLY!), though he played a fairly non-interesting and easy role.

But this movie brought quite a few laughs out of me and my family, especially with Pauly Shore!
