I don't have all the words right now but this film is a work of art.

A lot more amusing than I thought it would be.

It’s sentimental, ridiculously long and only occasionally funny

A clunky actioner with a handful of cool moments.

It's great if you want it to watch it, yes. If you have Mono and are laying around all day and if you just went to the doctor like I did. Number one, It's very funny. Second of all, you can kind of see fake history. Third of all you can say whatever you want. But forth of all...overall... it's awesome.One thing I liked is that is that... just everything. There's nothing that's bad.

I like The Flintstones, and I am a fan of the animated series, so it's inevitable I would watch this movie at some point. I enjoyed it for what it was as a child - it was okay! I remember the animated show appearing on Boomerang, and use to watch plenty of episodes especially before heading off to school. It's just a stand-alone movie to the animated series, and there's not much difference between the two - really! It was good that it was made since The Flintstones was still a popular show back then otherwise it never would've been made. The movie shouldn't be taken too seriously, and should be enjoyed for what it was. Yes, it does have flaws, and the story can seem a bit vague, but that shouldn't stop you from enjoying it. If you're a fan of The Flintstones, watch it otherwise don't. Just be glad that there is actually a movie about this show. The Flintstones is another one of these cool 90s movies we've been blessed with.

The FlintstonesContrary to popular belief, the Paleo Diet is more than consuming a bottle of Flintstone vitamins for every meal.Thankfully, this comedy will give dieters greater insight into what cave-people ate.When blue-collar Fred (John Goodman) is accused of embezzling by his boss (Kyle MacLachlan) and his assistant (Halle Berry), he's not only in trouble with the law, but also his wife (Elizabeth Perkins) and mother-in-law (Elizabeth Taylor).Meanwhile, his neighbors Barney (Rick Moranis) and Betty (Rosie O'Donnell) hope to adopt a cave-boy with Fred's financial help.While it does an adequate job of mimicking its inspiration for loyalists, this tepid 1994 live- action adaption of the 1960s primetime cartoon does an inadequate job of updating Fred's dilemmas to appeal to younger fans unfamiliar with his stone-age antics.That's because kids today cannot relate to when prehistoric birds had to etch your dick pic onto slate before you could text it.Yellow Lightvidiotreviews.blogspot.ca

Fred Flintstone is promoted to vice-president in order to serve as an unwitting patsy for a fraud, and it costs him his lifelong friendship with Barney Rubble.This film exists in order to bring to life all the anachronistic gags from the TV series, and it does this very well - the iconic title sequences, in particular, are recreated with loving accuracy. Of course, a film needs rather than that in order to sustain 2 hours' running time, and here we have a story of corporate skulduggery with a subtext about the value of friendship. It is perfectly adequate as a basis for the visuals.Because Bedrock is just about perfectly realised, and the casting is very nearly spot-on, too - only Rosie O'Donnell comes across as a little too brash and robust for Betty. The playing is broad, but it needs to be.This is a fun family film, but it will mean rather more to those who grew up with the TV cartoon series.
