The MFF Podcast #173: Encino Man

February 6, 2019

You can download or stream the pod on Spotify, Itunes, StitcherTune In,  Podbean, or LISTEN TO THE POD ON BLOG TALK RADIO.

The MFF podcast is back, and this week we’re talking about the 1992 cult classic Encino Man. We’re big fans of this movie and embrace its earnest attempts to tell a story about a caveman helping two dorks become cool. In this podcast, you will hear us talk about Steve Coozer, food groups, and Pauly Shores brilliant engineering skills which allowed he and Sean Astin to lift a 1,000 pound block of ice out of an eight-foot hole. In fact, we come up with a bunch of weird theories about this movie, and even discuss the Pauly Shore cinematic universe (Encino Man, Son in Law, In the Army Now) which features random appearances of Brendan Fraser’s Link character.

We love this scene.

If you are a fan of the podcast make sure to send in some random listener questions so we can do our best to not answer them correctly. We thank you for listening and hope you enjoy the pod!

    I love the psychological overview you did of Stony, a character more troubled and sincere than most realize. This reminds me of your suppositions about Cereal in Hackers. They seem like strikingly similar, stylish, wayward characters.

      I must really like these kind of characters. I hope the world learns about his engineering brilliance.

        I especially take not of your observations because I was, in many ways, that teenager. It’s quite satisfying hearing someone identify it instead of mocking the quirky character (clearly hiding a story behind his idiosyncrasies).
