Pauly Shore and Sean Astin play bumbling California high school students who discover the frozen body of a paleolithic man (Brendan Fraser), who then thaws and is revived. All the usual fish-out-of-water jokes that go with the territory are in full view, but there’s a light sense of adventure here that makes it more fun than the norm.
