"Lots Of fun!" -The New York Times

Ex-Beatle Ringo Starr, Barbara Bach, Dennis Quaid, and Shelley Long band together in a hilarious love story for the ages… the stone ages! With an all-star cast and fun special effects, this cult comedy classic is a "cheery, playful" (The New York Times) romp through B.C. that "aims for belly laughs and gets them: (Variety)!

Prehistoric life is tough for poor, lovesick Atouk (Starr). As the smallest and weakest caveman of his tribe, he is unable to win the heart of the beautiful Lana (Bach) and is banished from the cave by Lana's mate, Tonda (NFL star John Matusak), the hulking chief of the tribe. Forced to wander the ancient wilderness, Atouk meets a variety of unlikely allies who, after hearing his story, want to help him get back with his clan. And before Atouk knows it, he's the chief of his own tribe… of misfits! Leading this rag-tag band of oddballs into battle, Atouk has one mission in mind: to knock Tonda off his throne and carry Lana away… by her hair!
