By Scott Goldfine

A pair of teenage chums (Sean Astin and MTV’s Pauly Shore) uncover a frozen Cro-Magnon man (Brendan Fraser) in this comedy. After the caveman defrosts, the boys try to salvage their unpopular lives by integrating the walking artifact into their high school.

This ludicrous film’s half-baked premise reeks of a rejected 1960s sitcom. But kids may enjoy the simple silliness. Rated PG.
