About the Movie

Make way for the modern Stone Age family as they make the jump from animated favorites to live-action heroes! There's trouble brewing in Bedrock: a test mix-up has made Fred Flintstone (John Goodman) a vice president at Slate & Company, and now an evil executive (Kyle MacLachlan) and his sinister secretary (Halle Berry) are plotting to use Fred as the fall guy in an embezzlement scheme. Luckily for Fred, his best friend Barney Rubble (Rick Moranis), wife Wilma (Elizabeth Perkins) and her best friend Betty (Rosie O'Donnell) always have the big guy’s back in this yabba-dabba-doo of an adventure! Elizabeth Taylor co-stars in the “Steven Spielrock” production filled with dino-sized special effects and classic Flintstones humor.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Our Flick of the Week is "The Flintstones," and unfortunately, much less thought has been put into this screenplay than into the production design and publicity campaign for this profoundly dull enterprise. – Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune, Aug 16, 2017

Rotten: A $45 million design problem with 98 minutes of weak prehistoric jokes. – Washington Post, Mar 7, 2001

Rotten: As Fred Flintstone might have put it: yabba-dabba-boo. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Mar 7, 2001

Rotten: Just watching it is fun. Following the plot is not so much fun. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

As Good As It Gets

This is a rather polarizing film adaptation of the eponymous animated series (also available on iTunes) - a series that began its life as TV's first "adult" cartoon and later emerged as a top kids' show in decades of reruns. Although I personally like it, it is rather hard for me to recommend this film, given the mixed reaction from fans of the series. The set of Bedrock is masterfully done, and the film was made under the supervision of series creators Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera (both of whom appear in the film). Although John Goodman was inarguably well-suited as Fred Flintstone, the casting of Rosie O'Donnell as Betty Rubble raised quite a few eyebrows (although she reportedly got the role because she perfected Betty's giggle).

In this movie it tell u that the cavemen were more civilized that us

Truly Awful

This film is loaded with forced laughs, and amounts to a poor man's version of the classic cartoon. Goodman seemed perfect for the role, and is a fantastic talent in both dramas and comedies, but this lame and actually boring script did not work for him - the rest of the cast.
On a positive note, it was the debut of Halle Berry, whose star power was put to much better use in subsequent films.
