Movie Info

Cavemen follows LA playboy Dean (Skylar Astin) who is fed up with one-night-stands and empty relationships and realizes that he wants something more out of life than just a party. With a little inspiration from his nine-year-old nephew and his best friend Tess (Camilla Belle), Dean decides to try his hand at finding true love for the first time - which proves to be much more difficult than he thought in modern-day Los Angeles.

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

An unevolved romantic comedy better suited to the Paleolithic Era.

Herschel Faber, the writer and director here, didn't bother fleshing out these characters enough to make us give a hoot about them.

"Cavemen" writer-director Herschel Faber has sketched such a thin and unfunny look at L.A. singles, it should mark the death knell for movies about child-men on the make.

Apparently answering the unasked question, "What would happen if you told a 12-year-old at screenwriting camp to combine Swingers and (500) Days of Summer?"

Top Critic

A dismal rom-com for dudes that makes the average beer commercial look nuanced and plot-heavy.

Top Critic

A screenwriter tries to fall in love in order to lend authenticity to his script about a man falling in love in Cavemen, a tiresome film that itself knows nothing but other rom-com plots.

A by-the-numbers sex comedy, Cavemen is a clichéd and formulaic film. The story follows an aspiring writer who finds himself unable to write about love (since he's never been), but he soon finds that he has feelings for his best friend when she starts dating one of his roommates. It's a painfully predictable plot, but is made bearable by the performances (as the actors have some charisma). And, the comedy is fairly well-done (though stereotypical). Cavemen isn't a bad film, it's just lazy and uninspired.

This was a great bromantic flick. It steers clear of the romantic genre only because it is so diligently told through the guys point of view, but it still has a sappy ending for all the chick flick fans.
