When Dave's mom asks Link if his necklace is old, Link nods in the affirmative. If Link was a caveman and still had very limited speaking skills, he wouldn't be able to comprehend the question. He also wouldn't comprehend "I'll be back" or "Wheez the Juice," which he saw people do. He could've seen someone nod and mimicked it at (unknowingly) the right time and right place. See more »

I just saw this movie again after many, many hundreds of years, and bugger me if it hasn't IMPROVED with age! (er, by that I mean it HAS...)
I was a bit like the Sean Astin character when I was at school. If only I'd had a caveman of my own to help me pull chicks, how differently things might have turned out...
Okay, so the movie has no basis in reality, but who would expect it to? Cavemen aside, it's a TEEN movie, and they NEVER depict real people or situations. At least, not on any planet I've ever been to.
This movie doesn't pretend to be anything outstanding. It's intended purely as entertainment, and that's what it is.
It appears to have been promoted as one of those frightful "Pauly Shore movies", but it's not. He's really just a supporting player (and is nowhere near as annoying in small doses, it turns out). This is Brendan Fraser's flick. If anyone else had played Link, I can't imagine the movie being as good as it is.
My one beef is that Sandra Hess ("Cave Nug") wasn't given enough screen time (but then, as far as I'm concerned, she's NEVER given enough screen time).
I never knew Scatterbrain had covered "Mama Said Knock You Out", either. That's cool.
Okay, I'm going for a lie down now.
