In 35,000 BC, the tribe of the Dirty Hairs is in war against the tribe of the Clean Hairs for eight hundred years, trying to get their shampoo. The chief of the Dirty Hairs sends his daughter Guy disguised to the enemy tribe to get some shampoo for his tribe. When the healer of the Clean Hairs tribe surprisingly kills two cavemen of his tribe, their imbecile chief assigns Pierre with curled hair and Pierre blonde to investigate the murder and find the criminal.

Thousands of years ago. A bunch of cavemen attempt to solve the world's first murder mystery.
The French satire is made in the vein of films such as The Flinstones (I mean the original cartoon series, not the tenuous movie). So it was the absurdity of the situations that made me laugh through the whole movie. This might of course not be everyone's cup of tea, so if you don't find concepts introduced in an era when those things didn't yet exist funny then this movie will definitely not be your favorite. Also, if you don't laugh at the Mounty Python movies, it's not worth watching this film either. However, if you like distancing yourself from everyday things by looking at them set in the past and find the discrepancy between those modern concepts and the movie's era hilarious, you should no doubt watch RRRrrrr!!! I think it's worth at least a penny, or whatever the DVD costs.
