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.

RRRrrrr!!! is a French caveman comedy set in the 'Stan Age' (everyone is called Stan - at least in the English subtitles - because they haven't got round to inventing any new names yet) that is either stupidly enjoyable or enjoyably stupid (or just plain stupid) depending on your mood. There's not much in the way of plot, revolving around a 600 year fight between the Clean Hairs and the Dirty Hairs over the secret of shampoo that gets sidelined when the world's first murder is committed, but that's just an excuse for a series of spot gags along the lines of a Tex Avery or Looney Tunes cartoon.
As usual with French comedy there's a tendency to find cold-blooded murder extremely amusing (some French comedies end in massacres that even Peckinpah might think was over the top) that doesn't always translate, but there are more than enough good gags, both visual and verbal, to compensate.
