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.

proof of male stupidity
2 August 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Now that it was OK to show brainless erotica on screen, they were allowed to make a movie like "Quando le donne avevano la coda" (called "When Women Had Tails" in English). It portrays several witless cavemen finding an island inhabited by scantily clad babe Filli (Senta Berger). Personally, I can't understand why these dopes wanted to devour her, even if they thought that she was an animal; had I seen her, I immediately would have wanted to have sex with her! Anyway, she gets one of them interested in a certain kind of game. Before you know it, they both run off together, but the other men aren't satisfied and chase them.

I should identify that most of the movie consists of scenes in which people club each other askew, asunder, and in other ways. It seems like the sort of movie filmed by a bunch of people getting together for the weekend (possibly for an orgy). But overall, I liked it, if only for the guilty pleasure that it arouses. This is certainly one that you watch to laugh at, nothing serious here. Really fun.
