Storyline

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?

stoned age
18 February 2009 | by polysicsarebestSee all my reviews

As a huge Giuseppe Andrews film (easily the best director making movies today), I often wondered, "What would happen if Tyree (a star in many of his films) crossed over to a 'major' motion picture?" While this isn't really a MAJOR motion picture, it is certainly the biggest budget movie Tyree has ever been in, and he's absolutely hilarious! I just wanted more Tyree, more!!! His "Old Fool" is one of the best characters ever! Andrews and Dougal were hilarious, as usual, as was Adam Rifkin! The creator of classics "Psycho Cop 2", "Invisible Maniac", and "The Dark Backward"... didn't realize he was such a charismatic, memorable, and funny actor too! This movie, all in all, is beyond stupid and I didn't laugh that much, and most people will probably hate it. But if you're a Giuseppe Andrews fan, this is worth watching. Now if we could only get Vietnam Ron in the sequel!
