**The crazy story and wacky lovable characters make Blast from the Past a one-of-a-kind rom-com delight everyone needs to see.** One of the best romcoms you have probably never heard of. With its original and unique story, Blast from the Past charms audiences with its zany fish-out-of-water premise and fun cast. Brenden Fraser's lovable innocent, and ignorant character delights as this literally sheltered young man leaves home (a bomb shelter he had lived in his entire life) and enters the world for the first time. What a crazy concept! I haven't seen another movie like it. Its clever, hilarious, and even a little inspiring, with Fraser's Adam restoring some hope and care in the hearts of his newfound jaded friends through his 1960s upbringing and manners. The goofy side characters and outrageous story make Blast from the Past a laugh-out-loud delight that everyone can enjoy for a stay-in date night movie. My wife always includes this film in her favorite movies of all time.

This was made in 99. Imagine what would happen if it was made today, in 2020, where people would shriek at them and the media would dig into their past to find anything they could smear them with while claiming that they are evil incarnate just because they are Boomers and the Greatest Generation... ... that would be a seriously depressing film. Instead it was made in 99 when they could make fun of BOTH the current culture and the past culture in a juxtaposition that is both hysterical and heart warming while making an interesting culture point that is under-played because the point of this is a comedy and the moral message takes a back seat to entertainment because, it was 99, when movies were made to entertain first and foremost. Yeah, you couldn't see this made today because Hollywood would feel compelled to make a point to paint every in the fallout shelter as evil. But, in 99, it was hysterical escapism.
