Atouk: [Angrily] Ca-ca.
Nook: [looking with disgust at his fingers and then right into the camera] Shit.

Ringo Starr stars
22 February 2002 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Ex-Beatle Starr joins a jock and some real actors in this zany stone age romp. I suppose the ringed one will never be a top actor but I always enjoy his films. This stuff was so goofy it kept me in stitches the whole time. Solid fun with loads of laughs.
