Encino Man is a 1992 comedy, which was released in the UK, Australia and New Zealand as California Man, featuring actors Brendan Fraser, Sean Astin and Pauly Shore.
The plot revolves around two teenagers from Encino, Los Angeles, California played by Sean Astin and Pauly Shore, who discover a caveman in their backyard frozen in a block of ice.

Encino Man (1717 words)
It is definitely a credit to this man's comedic and dramatic talents that this film works as well as it does, because without him, this film would have died immediately after the jokes about acclimatizing a caveman to the modern era were finished.
As this note suggests, Encino Man was released under the name of California Man in Europe, and the credits on the Region 4 DVD release of this film have been altered to reflect this.
Encino Man is a delightful way to spend eighty-five minutes, and even does the task of parking your brain in neutral for you while you're watching it.
