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?

7 March 2009 | by MutakkSee all my reviews

Sad statement about the current trend of cinema, that some film goers actually enjoy this dreadful "film" from the Adam Rifkin school of schlock.

Rifkin shamelessly imitates Woody Allen (and Mel Brooks, to a lesser extent) in a 90-minute no-laugh-fest with nothing whatsoever for the audience than a parade of female body parts and endless fart jokes.

Not one joke -- NOT ONE -- warrants laughter. This film literally has no redeemable qualities whatsoever. I can't imagine what David Carridine and Gary Busey were thinking when they signed up for this dog. As for Rn Jeremy, there's nothing he could have ever done in his entire career of porn that could be as humiliating as this dumb, stupid, worthless movie.

Only gets 1 star, because IMDb doesn't give the option for Zero.
