Jack Black and Michael Cera star as two Paleolithic-era cavemen named Zed and Oh in the 2009 comedy film Year One. After Zed eats from the forbidden Tree of Knowledge, he is cast out of his tribe and convinces his reluctant friend Oh to join him on a journey to discover the world beyond their village. Along the way, they encounter biblical figures such as Cain and Abel, Abraham and Isaac, and Sodom and Gomorrah.

Throughout their journey, Zed and Oh encounter a variety of comedic situations and characters. They cross paths with a tribe of women led by the beautiful Eema (Olivia Wilde), who takes a romantic interest in Oh. They also befriend a Biblical prophet named Abraham (Hank Azaria), who is portrayed as a crazed and obsessive religious zealot.

As the story unfolds, Zed and Oh discover that they are living in a time of great upheaval and change. They witness the rise of civilization and the emergence of social hierarchies, which clashes with their simple and carefree way of life. At the same time, they discover the value of loyalty and friendship as they face down challenges and overcome obstacles together.

The film draws heavily on biblical themes and stories, but it also incorporates elements of modern humor and sensibility. It features a mix of slapstick comedy, raunchy jokes, and witty one-liners, often delivered with Black and Cera's trademark irreverence and charm.

Overall, Year One is an entertaining and lighthearted comedy that offers a unique take on the biblical era. It's a movie that manages to combine ancient myth and modern humor in a way that is both clever and appealing. The performances by Black, Cera, and Wilde are standout, and the supporting cast of comedic actors helps to keep the laughs coming throughout. Whether you're a fan of biblical movies or just looking for a good comedy, Year One is definitely worth checking out.

Year One is a 2009 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 37 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.9 and a MetaScore of 34.
