  • Summary: 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.

    Cavemen has absolutely nothing fresh to say about its subject, and its tired genre conventions wouldn’t pass muster on a Fox sitcom.

    In a movie like this, where plot points are practically an aside, the characters’ depth and the dialogue quality are what give it potentially memorable zing. Cavemen is not only zingless, it practically pulls a muscle attempting to generate some.

    A tiresome film that itself knows nothing but other rom-com plots.

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

    An utterly unevolved romantic comedy, “Cavemen” tries to split the difference between raunchy and sweet and fails miserably on all counts.

    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.

    A terrible movie about a bland, morose young man’s search for love.

    For the genre, it was pretty good. Fun movie to watch good music and a pretty cool cast. There was some good one-liners in there as well. Overall, I would recommend seeing it. Expand

    hey @boilingboy1! You're a hypocrite. The movie is awfulness... but, hey, you are 'sick of people giving tens to weight the reviews'? You gave it a zero to weigh it down cos you hated the ten!!... It is no different. Classic hypocrisy. Perhaps, per chance, you could both suck a big fat D? Thank you ever so much 8-) Expand

    How does "For the genre, it was pretty good" merit a 10? I'm tired of seeing user reviews try to offset the critics' low score. Incompetent movie.
