About Encino Man

High school misfits Stoney and Dave discover a long-frozen primeval man buried in their back yard. But the thawed-out Link—as the boys have named him—quickly becomes a wild card in the teens' already zany southern California lives. After a shave and some new clothes, Link's presence at school makes the daily drudgery a lot more interesting.
