Year One

(2009)

Prehistoric comedy with Jack Black as Zed and Michael Cera as Oh - cavemen in 1AD. Despite being banished from their village, the pairplan on making it big - Zed has a gut feeling he's been chosen by God to do great things. Starting their own tribe (the 'Muscle Tribe of Danger and Excellence'), Zed and Oh set off on an epic journey through the ancient world.... More

Unfortunately, their quest for glory hits a few snags, like being sold into slavery, and later becoming the object of interest to a very amorous, very hairy high priest (Oliver Platt) in the oppulent city of Sodom.

Directed by Harold Ramis (writer of Ghostbusters and Meatballs, and director of Caddyshack and Groundhog Dog).Hide

Jack Black delivers yet more proof that he's lost his unpredictable zany edge and morphed into middle aged Robin Williams mediocrity. A dreadful lowest-common-denominator movie that scrapes the very bottom of the barrel for cheap unfunny gags. Remove your brain, get blind drunk, gouge out your eyes with a rusty spoon and maybe (just maybe) you'll find some redeeming features in this stone-age stoner farce. Makes Adam Sandler look like a comedy genius and Rob Schneider's THE HOT CHICK or THE... More ANIMAL look like high art...Hide

I used to think he was funny and he truly can be but I think he sold out and just turns up polished pieces of movie ****


It is funny, and I have to admit that, but don't expect anything memorable to come from this movie. The plotline/timeline is a bit hard to follow and anyone who attended church when they were younger will pretty much understand what I mean. Still, I laughed and have since forgotten most of it.


Holy shit that was funny!


This movie was great, completely funny and random, very witty, Great!!!!!

If you don't like this movie you are an old stiffy!!

  • Twenty times longer than its (excellent) trailer, and with about the same number of decent jokes, this underachieving effort boasts another brilliant Michael Cera performance, plus Jack Black licking a turd. Or is he polishing it? Full Review
