Very likeable fish out of water comedy as Brendan Fraser's 50s throwback experiences the highs and lows of modern day LA. A great cast (Christopher Walken displays a great comic touch as his paranoid father) shore up a flimsy script built on a strong premise and go through the inevitable misunderstandings of the word "gay".

Fraser is good and the movie has enough charm to entertain.

Historically accurate and thoroughly entertaining and well acted, this is the kind of movie you can see a million times. Fraser at his best. And what could go wrong with Sissy Spacek and Christopher Walken as Fraser's *literally* out of date parents? This film is genuinely funny, with fun music and just enough corny humor. It's truly a classic.

One of my favorite Frasier films! Brendan plays an innocently adorable 35 year old who was raised in a fallout shelter. As he's exposed to a modern world that he knows nothing about, he falls for the world-wise cynic, Silverstone. Walken and Spacek are charming and funny as his parents. I was pleasantly surprised by Silverstone. A cute, funny, romantic film.

Not a movie for mutants

The first reason I watched this movie is that I am a huge Christopher Walken fan. So I will watch pretty much any movie he is in. "Blast from the Past" tells the story of Adam Weber. In the 1960's, during the Cuba crisis, his parents locked themselves in the bomb shelter which his eccentric father had constructed for just in case. Having been locked for 35 years, Adam has never seen anything else but the confined space of the shelter. He has never seen anything of the world and has become a very naive man. Now, the doors are unlocked and Adam must venture out into LA to find food and supplies for his family and a non-mutant wife for himself.
Over all this movie has a lot of charisma, the charm of it is that Frasier knows how to play the innocent type of character and he does it well. If...
