Encino Man

In the rush to be the new Wayne's World — a low-cost comedy that reaps millions — comes the tale of Stoney (Pauly Shore) and Dave (Sean Astin), two bu-uds who unearth a frozen cave man (Brendan Fraser) whom they defrost, dude up and take to school.

Plot analysis is useless, since the film's fate rests with MTV comic Shore in his feature debut. (He cameos in Class Act.) Is it buff chillin' with Pauly in search of fundage for grindage and fresh nugs or even a Lisa? Fully? Not even? Don't get your melon twigged. Just gear for a summer of Pauly-speak, and God help us all.
