Stephen Baldwin, Kristen Johnston, Jane Krakowski, Mark Addy, Alan Cumming and Joan Collins star in this prehistoric comedy about the oldest story in the world: boy meets girl. In the town of Bedrock, confirmed bachelor Fred Flintstone (Addy) and his buddy, Barney Rubble (Baldwin), find themselves lacking female companions. But everything changes on the fateful day they meet wealthy Wilma Slaghoople (Johnston) and her roommate, Betty O’Shale (Krakowski). When the gang travels to a Rock Vegas resort, will Fred’s gambling push Wilma back into the arms of her ex-boyfriend, or will Lady Luck smile on them? Find out how it all began for the “modern Stone Age family” in this charming prequel to the beloved television series!

Um, no surprises here. Better than the original.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas is the 2000 live-action film starring Stephen Baldwin and Jane Krakowski. All the tropes from the classic Flintstones cartoon from the early '60s are here -- sight gags, caveman puns, working dinosaurs lamenting their fates directly to the camera. There are a couple moments of sexual innuendo with Barney, and some cartoonish violence along the order of Fred falling from a ferris wheel. And early in the early in the film, a dinosaur audibly passes gas. But on the whole, this silly and campy reinterpretation of the well-known cartoon is enjoyable enough for the entire family. The problem is that this movie, in spite of fun acting and closing adhering to the source material, doesn't really move beyond the original cartoon; it just brings back jokes from that show in a not very different form. Ultimately, you're better off watching the perpetually syndicated Hanna-Barbera animated series.
