CAVEMAN (Theatrical Release USA 1981)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì 

Caveman—intriguing presentation—features the Beatles drummer, Ringo Starr. Interesting and comical movie that traces human advancement through its early years from learning to stand upright to the discovery and use of fire and weaponry. It’s cute, original, and plain fun. Watch for guest star Dennis Quaid.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. The movie has a certain tone that marked another Beatles movie, Yellow Submarine. Be aware the film does have some adult humor. For Beatle enthusiasts, the movie should work very well as Ringo Starr drives the movie’s story.
