pass the toilet paper...
22 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Twenty years ago, "National Lampoon" meant the movie was FUNNY; now it's a warning. Be afraid. Be very afraid. "Homo Erectus" is another utterly stupid and unfunny movie from a director KNOWN for stupid unfunny movies.

I didn't laugh once, almost fell asleep, and even Five hundred scenes of naked breasts couldn't even keep me awake. Seriously, there are so many scenes in this movie that were insultingly bad. I kept wanting to yell at the screen!!!!

Basicvally, "Homo Erectus" is nothing more than a limp ripoff of the 1981 comedy "Caveman". Every attempt at humor -- EVERY scene, EVERY "comic" moment -- falls flatter than Ally McBeal's tits. Don't waste your time.
