Storyline

A bunch of 7 orphan cavemen grow up on a little island all by themselves. After a fire burns all vegetation they set out to find a new place to live. Here, one day they trap a strange animal, looking very similar to them, only softer and with longer hair. She (Filli) feels attracted to one of the brothers (Ulli) and convinces him, that a certain kind of playing with each other is far more satisfying than just eating her. He hides her and serves the other cavemen a goat. Soon Ulli and Filli are playing the Johnson-Game quite frequently. But the others find out about this and want to see what's so great with "johnsonning". After they all force Filli to show them the game too, she manages to flee with Ulli. Being pursued by the 6 men of Ulli's clan, they meet the rest of Filli's clan: A tribe of about 150 unsatisfied women, who just love to have new men around for playing.

Senta Berger may rue this
11 August 2012 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

If you are a fan of Senta Berger--surely one of the most handsome actresses ever--then I can imagine you might want to see this. She was certainly capable of better, given a role and a script, and she may rue this film in retrospect; but at least you'll get to see her in a costume you just can't believe stays on her. They must have glued the hair piece to her chest to keep it in place. I saw a German- dubbed version; dire dialog. The humor is moronic: 3-Stooges sort of falling down and beating each other with rubber clubs. This might look better after 3 joints.

Interestingly enough, the extras section contained a trailer for a trashy movie titled Sizzle Beach USA featuring a very young and then-unknown Kevin Costner. What an embarrassment! At least as amusing as the main feature on the DVD.
