PG-13
Blast From The Past is a 1999 romantic comedy directed by Hugh Wilson. During the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, paranoid scientist Calvin Webber (Christopher Walken) mistakenly believes that a nuclear holocaust is imminent. He creates a huge underground bomb shelter and descends into it with his wife, Helen (Sissy Spacek), who soon gives birth to a son named Adam (Brendan Fraser). The family lives in the shelter for 35 years, which Calvin thinks will be enough time for the fallout from the nuclear explosion to clear. At the end of that period, Calvin lets Adam ascend to the surface to find supplies and to see if there is a healthy female to take down into the shelter with him. Adam, who has been raised with the principles and lifestyle of the early 1960s, finds that the world of the '90s is difficult to understand. With the help of new friend named Eve (Alicia Silverstone), innocent Adam tries to navigate through the complexities of the modern city to find a woman to be his bride.moreless
