Year One (2009)

Harold Ramis (a Ghostbuster and former SCTV member) directs this ridiculous comedy which blends biblical early history with cavemen.

Jack Black and Michael Cera are banished from their cave men tribe and journey to the end of the world (a nearby cliff) only to discover characters from Genesis (Cain & Abel, Adam & Eve, Abraham and Isaac, the city of Sodom, etc.). Every opportunity to weave in some sort of sexual deviancy (which isn't necessarily out of place in the Genesis story) is taken in this farce.

There are some wonderfully funny moments in the film, but it is still a "dumb comedy" and the few times when they try to make a great point, it has little meaning against its dopey backdrop.
