Trivia

This movie was released around the same time as the serious prehistoric drama Quest For Fire (Quest for Fire (1981)) as well as Mel Brooks' History of the World: Part I (1981), the latter of which had its own comic caveman sequence. These three movies were all first-released in 1981. See more »

Silly fun in 60,000 B C
25 October 2003 | by (Denver,Colorado) – See all my reviews

Some have been a bit harsh with this little film and totally missed the point. We all know that dinosaurs and man didn't coexist but that is beside the point. This film refuses to take itself seriously and why should it? What I found charming was the language the cave folk used,not until a man from the land of the rising sun,seemed to help us viewers with some of the more obscure words. Like the difference between"Aloonda and Zugg-Zugg". (There's a difference?). It figures that the Japanese man would offer the translation,but he gives up and goes along with their slang. John Matuszak,former NFL player,was a perfect casting as Tonda. Some of their very important "discoveries" are a real hoot too. Look for a surprise actor playing the Snowman!
