Trivia / Encino Man

  • Blooper: The scene where Link is driving and Dave is stuck on the window, in one brief shot you can clearly see Dave's Stunt Double.
  • Market-Based Title: In some foreign countries, the film was titled California Man instead of Encino Man.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Actually, Sean Astin couldn't be lured into making this film just by offers of money. Then he was offered a chance to direct at least one short film, when he really wanted a directing career. He describes his response to that as "Sold!"
