Prehistoric cave-stud Ari wins lovely virgin Listra in a pig-catching contest, but their attempts at "Ding-Dong" keep getting interrupted by idiot battles between his tribe, The Cave Dwellers, and their neighbors, The Lake Dwellers. Annoyed that hubby would rather make war than Ding-Dong, Listra organizes the women of both tribes to go on strike and "abstain Ding-Dong" until the men stop fighting. It all happens back in the days when men carried clubs and women played ding-dong, an Italian stone-age sex comedy based on the Greek classic "Lysistrata" and filled with shapely cavewomen sporting '70s hairstyles, a gay caveman with the hots for the hero, a title tune that will follow you forever and, of course, plenty of old-fashioned Ding-Dong!

Very very Stupid. Neither Original or Creative. yet surely Funny.
This is the second film based on the weird adventures of some group of prehistorical men (the first being 'Quando le donne avevano la coda'). Like about all of the production of Italian b-movies from the 70s (spicy movies or 'poliziotteschi' movies), you can't expect anything smart in concept, neither really smartly done (there's some good enjoyable exception), but the movie has a good rhythm and sure comes to be better than the predecessor in stupid games with Italian language, single scenes, characters and story overall. It also needn't justify man's knowledge of environment's basic elements (which have already been quite badly depicted in the first movie of the series) and focuses more on reconstructing or justifying human relationships (there's even a homosexual cave man) and technical conquests. It's obviously far from being a (really) good movie but it keeps funny all the way and efficiently ironizes on human vices, little and big tragedies (think only of their stupid tiny little wars, one of the funniest filmed situation of the movie), and in the end comes with the usual load of stunning beauties present in this kind of movies, but in this case their presence doesn't really come to be 'disturbing' or merely useless, sure is they aren't as 'well' portrayed as male characters, but has it really been otherwise in one of the infinities of men fantasies whose are composed of these Italian b-movies?I suggest this one. (Don't know anything about foreign translation quality)
