"Cavemen" is a comedic film with a slight edge of drama revolving around the lives of somewhat single, somewhat unemployed guys living in a warehouse converted to living quarters in the 'Arts District' of Downtown Los Angeles, California, who are toiling adulthood and realities of love.Written by
Let's list the things we know. Things for which we have empirical evidence. 1. Your romantic comedy or your bromantic comedy will not succeed if Skyler Astin is your main male love interest. ( See 21 & Over, and Pitch Perfect( I didn't like it as much as everyone else))
2. Being able to stand in front of a camera and look good doesn't make for good acting. (Chad Michael Murray). I will say that Camilla Belle does give it the "ol' college try" ( she is stunning).
3. If you're going to do a plot that's been done a hundred times, (especially recently with the rise of the Bromantic Comedy in film) you have to at least try something different that will capture the attention of the movie goer!
4. Only in the movies can an average looking guy working in a dive bar bang hot chicks enough to grow weary of it. (Where do they come up with these characters?)
This plot has been done enough for the whole thing to have become one big cliché'. Its' actors and actresses do not entice you to invest in their characters. The plot points are cheesy and predictable. And you are not given any reason to believe in the love of the two principle characters. At one point near the end of the movie, Jason Patric ( really, what is he doing in this movie? He was in Speed 2 for God's sake!) Throws a script at the main character Dean (Skylar Astin) and ask him to show him where the to leads fall in love.... He can't do it. How fitting it is that that script turns out to be this movie in some lame attempt to be Meta. I have to go because every minute I write about this movie, my rating drops. See it if you dare.... you'll hate yourself in the morning though.
