Jackson plays a homeless schizophrenic who finds a dead body outside his cave in Central Park and must pull his faltering mental faculties together enough to play Sherlock Holmes and solve the who-done-it. Plot points stretch well beyond the bounds of believability and venture into the territory of the ridiculous as the Caveman conveniently infiltrates every realm of society he wishes in order to follow up on his suspicions. Granted, he used to be a master pianist before his mental downfall, but come on. Director Lemmons's second feature film, the first being "Eve's Bayou." Based on the Edgar Award-winning 1994 novel by George Dawes Green.
