Lumbered and regrettable attempt to launch ex-Beatle Ringo Starr as an actor. It's all fart jokes and unfunny puns in this adventure of a prehistoric Neanderthal.
Perhaps Mel Brooks or the Zuckers could have made a good film out of the story, but this is all rather lame and not worth giving up an hour-and-a-half of your time for.
