Year of the Weasel Episode 3: Encino Man & Class Act (1992)

We’re now a month into our year-long immersion into the filmography of Pauly Shore, and we’re finally watching a Pauly Shore film! Actually, make that one and a half Pauly Shore films, because we’re pairing his motion picture debut, 1992’s Encino Man, with his (rightfully) lesser-known role in the same year’s Kid n Play vehicle, Class Act. If you’re worried about keeping the movies straight, though, don’t be: he’s pretty much the same character in both. We’ll pick up again in two weeks with Son in Law–see you then, buuu-ddies!

Here’s the video version (unfortunately you’ll have to look at our mugs more than in past episodes, since Encino Man is a Disney I.P. and they don’t play around with copyright):
