About the Movie

When a man raised in a 1950s era bomb shelter emerges into the outside world for the first time--to find a nice non-mutant girl with whom to repopulate the earth--meets a savvy, cynical modern woman, sparks fly, opposites attract and the result is a wondrous chain reaction in this romantic comedy for the nuclear age--Blast from the Past. Adam's (Brendan Fraser "The Mummy," "The Mummy Returns") hapless search in the brave new world of homeless people, adult bookstores and all-night supermarkets leads him directly into Eve (Golden Globe-nominee Alicia Silverstone "Clueless," "Batman & Robin," TVs "Miss Match"). She's suspicious, smart about survival and uncertain of the possibilities of love. Her life has been a series of dead-end jobs, shallow boyfriends and dashed hopes. But the more Eve watches Adam approach the world with wide eyes, comic miscomprehension, joyous delight and a deliciously sweet innocence, the more she begins to find herself falling ... in love?

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: What's good in Blast From the Past is so inventive and what's bad is so blinkered that the best way to describe this fascinating, failed romantic comedy may be as a movie blown to hell. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Mar 21, 2014

Fresh: Blast From the Past doesn't overtax Fraser's abilities -- the film is only a sweet comic confection -- but director and co-writer Hugh Wilson does rely on a rare quality that Fraser has in spades: charm. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Mar 21, 2014

Rotten: Director/co-scenarist Hugh Wilson does acceptable work here, yet the concept's myriad possibilities for satirical and fairy-tale riffing go untapped. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Mar 21, 2014

Rotten: That's a relatively clever set-up for what's become a familiar genre: the time-displacement comedy, in which we get a kick out of viewing our era through another era's eyes. But this movie's eyes, Adam's, are awfully twinkly and not too focused. – Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune, Mar 21, 2014
