Parents need to know that The Flintstones is the 1994 live action remake of the classic cartoon series. This version stays faithful to the original. For instance, there are plenty of scenes in which Fred is shown using his feet to operate his Stone Age car to get to work, but the gender roles and stereotypes of the original are also prominent. When Fred gets an office job, his new secretary pretends to flirt with him while whispering sexually-charged one-liners like "use me how you see fit" and 'if you want me." Fred's mother-in-law (played by Elizabeth Taylor) accuses him of being drunk. Cigarette smoking. Beer drinking at the bowling alley. Characters drink martinis out of exaggerated Stone Age martini "glasses." Some cartoonish violence and pratfalls -- Bam Bam hitting Barney in the head with a club, characters flung into canyon walls via catapults. Product placement, contemporary products or news organizations have their Stone Age equivalents. Language includes "damn," "sucks." However, it's worth noting that the theme of personal sacrifice to help one's friends is stressed throughout the movie.
