YMMV / Encino Man

  • Fridge Logic: Why was there a block of ice in the ground in California where it is warm most of the time? A block of ice that has to be frozen for millenia in California?
    • Dave didn't understand why Link didn't hit Matt back. Stoney tells him it's because, like all cavemen, Link fought for food and survival, not for popularity. Though they may have also fought for tribal leadership.
      • Also, even if they did fight for leadership, Link knew he wasn't a part of this strange "tribe," so challenging the alpha male would be pointless.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The 7-11 clerk who chastises Link and Stoney for drinking out of the Icee machine ("No wheezing the ju-uice!") is played by Erick Avari, who would later have a supporting role in the blockbuster The Mummy, starring Brendan Fraser.
  • Memetic Mutation: The shot of Matt Wilson randomly appearing on screen, shaking his head towards Dave, became a YTMND fad for a while.
