Encino Man | D-

1992 | Les Mayfield

With an incredibly low budget, Encino Man sets incredibly low standards for itself, made more evident by the casting of Pauly Shore in a prominent role. Oddly, he is also the most compelling part of the film but is typically smirk-worthy in small doses, and unbearably annoying more often than not. One’s enjoyment of the film hinges entirely on their tolerance for Pauly Shore. In my case, it isn’t very high, but he provides one or two smirks in a film which otherwise contains precisely zero other legitimately funny moments.
