B(e)C(ause) of various factors
6 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

OK, having seen many movies about the Stone Age, we should know that the men were all buff dudes, and the women were all buxom babes. That's certainly the case here. Obviously, no part of "One Million Years B.C." really makes sense - humans and dinosaurs never existed contemporaneously - but that doesn't matter. The movie was intended as entertainment, and it's very enjoyable. Maybe that's just because we get to see Raquel Welch in a bikini, but the dinosaurs are also pretty cool. The movie makes us nostalgic for the era, even though we never experienced it.

So, it's brain candy to the max, and it doesn't pretend to be anything else. You're sure to like it, if only for the thought of Raquel Welch dressed like that.
