Critic Reviews for Cavemen
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?"
A dismal rom-com for dudes that makes the average beer commercial look nuanced and plot-heavy.
Audience Reviews for Cavemen
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.
Cavemen, at its core is very cliche. Even if the dialogue isn't anything special, it's enough to keep the film going. What hold this movie up is its dedicated cast and fast paced direction.
