”The two worst hunter-gatherers in a Stone Age tribe are expelled and venture out into a world they didn’t know existed,” says Ramis of his latest comedy, produced by his friend Judd Apatow. The lead buffoons (Black and Cera) embark on a journey that traces the Book of Genesis and allows them to sound off on their opposing views of religion. ”Jack believes there is a God who is mapping things out for him,” says Ramis, ”and Michael is a terrified existentialist, afraid of everything.” Kinda deep for a summer comedy, no? ”I talk about these things in elevated and intellectualized ways,” laughs Ramis. ”But it’s really just a good, dumb, broad comedy.”
