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.

Critic Reviews for Cavemen

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (8)

Cavemen shows occasional glimmers of promise, but ultimately winds up feeling just like Jay's blowjob story: meandering, somewhat dull, and with little payoff.

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.

February 6, 2014 | Full Review…

"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.

Cavemen is an apt title considering how the sensibility and maturity of the film's characters don't seem to have developed beyond primal, alpha-man impulses.

February 6, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

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?"

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.
