Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Thanks to natural selection, without the script, direction or comedic chops to survive, Homo Erectus will be extinct from theaters soon enough."

"A dreadful little laugh vacuum that makes you yearn for the droll subtlety of Ringo Starr."
‑ David Cornelius, DVDTalk.com
"None of this is especially funny, though Rifkin has somehow managed to persuade a whole lot of women to get topless and vaguely hold our attention."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, L.A. Weekly
"...about as silly as a film can get and still not be funny."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Primitive in all the wrong ways."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"The best prehistoric comedy of the year. Some terrific cameos."
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
