The hapless Ishbo, a philosophical caveman, yearns for more out of life than sticks, stones, and raw meat. Determined to single-handedly, advance the human race, Ishbo continually irritates his fellow Neanderthals with ridiculous inventions like the toothbrush, the spoon, and pants. The rest of his tribe, including his exasperated parents, write off his absurd gizmos and forward thinking ideas as the ravings of an idiot, something that doesn't help his efforts to impress the beautiful Fardart, the cave girl he loves from afar. Fardart only has eyes for Ishbo's studly but dimwitted brother, Thudnik. As if things couldn't get any worse, the enemy tribe on the other side of the hill is readying for war. Will Ishbo ever win Fardart's love? Can he possibly survive a man-eating wooly mammoth or a man-hating tribe of beautiful but deadly Amazons? Can he finally pull his species out of the primordial doldrums before he's history?

Actually Felt Like I Was Losing Brain Cells As I Watched
16 November 2010 | by sophyblissSee all my reviews

One of the dumbest movies I have ever seen. For some reason I tried to watch it twice, to see if maybe I was missing something, but it only got worse. Rifkin is a horrible actor and his 'jokes' are consistently puerile. Possibly of interest to horny, bored pubescent boys home sick for the day. Any good review this pile of trash receives obviously comes from someone involved with it. Any attempt to associate this with Woody Allen or even Mel Brooks is asinine!! How did this ever get made?? Obviously Busey, Carradine and Arnold were desperate for the cash.

I think this is the maddest I've ever been at wasting my time on a movie. Not even bad-good enough to rate as a cult classic! The shame is there's obviously talented, truly creative people out there who can't get a break because someone's throwing money at crap like this.
