Blast from the Past

Year: 1999
Director: Hugh Wilson
Cast: Brendan Fraser, Alicia Silverstone, Christopher Walken, Sissy Spacek
A pretty cute but asinine romantic comedy that marked the end of Alicia Silverstone's career to date (for some reason), and a project Brendan Fraser crops up in now and then even though he's capable of much better.

Adam (Fraser) has paranoid parents (Spacek and Walken) who believe America is under attack from the Russians in the 1960s and ensconce themselves in their vast underground bunker to wait out the war.

They emerge in the modern day, Adam a young man completely ignorant about the ways of the world but with a charm and innocence straight out of the 1960s, where the influence of the outside world stopped for them.

He meets and falls in love with Eve (get the theme there?) and her gay friend Troy, falls in love with winsome damsel and proceeds to woo her the only way he knows and which nobody is use to but everybody falls for. Cute, predictable, sweet and unassuming.
