Battle For The Bone A Lame Effort
11 June 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

The opening graphic explains where we are: "Long, Long Ago - When The World Was Young......and Hungry!" We see it's prehistoric times as the Pink Panther is walking around in his caveman outfit looking for food. The problem is that all the other cavemen and animals are doing the same.

Who does our hero first encounter? Why, the famous "Little White Man," who snatches a big bone from underneath the Panther's grasp. From that point, we follow the bone as it goes from one of four "people" - the Panther, the little man, a little green lizard or a giant blue dinosaur. The bone keep changing hands and each one who has it momentarily gets clobbered by one of the others.

Overall, it wasn't all that funny, and had a stupid ending and was marred, once again, by the presence of a laugh track - the most insulting thing filmmakers can do to an audience. Hey, guys: please let US decide when to laugh!
