Whoever had the idea to make a Flintstones live action movie based on the popular Hanna-Barbera cartoon named the same thing has to seriously get fired right now.

I had a yabba yabba doo time watching this awesome compared movie to the animated TV series. the four actors who played the Flintstones and the Rubbles were great! Fred Flintstone is voiced by John Goodman (Monsters Inc.), Barney Rubble is voiced by Rick Moranis (Spaceballs, Honey, I Shrunk The Kids and Brother Bear), Wilma is voiced by Elizabeth Perkins (Finding Nemo and Big) and Betty is voiced by Rosie O'Donnell (Tarzan and Sleepless in Seattle). This sure is a great movie. Expand

The set locations, props, special effects, and miscellaneous tools used within the movie all look like vintage stone age high tech, the plot is grade-A and is carried out magnificently by the actors and actresses picked to portray the Modern Stone Age Family. John Goodman is the heart of soul of all that Fred Flintstone is; Elizabeth Perkins is perfect as the red-haired hot wife Wilma who takes no nonsense no matter what Fred tries to tell her otherwise, Rick Moranis does a superb job of acting as the well-meaning, but often trouble-making neighbor that is Barney Rubble; Rosie O'Donnell is great as the warm and caring Betty Rubble who wants to be a loving mother to her adopted child; Elizabeth Taylor has rarely ever been better than in her last big-budget movie appearance ever, as Fred's insufferable Mother-In-Law, Pearl; Kyle Maclachlan plays the role of a scheming, greedy tycoon named Cliff Vandercave; while Halle Berry is the charming, seductive accomplice named Sharon Stone; Harvey Korman provides hilarious voice-work as the Dicta-bird who tries to provide advice to Fred Flintstone, Johnathan Winters has a surprising bit part as an out-of work Rock Quarry worker, and original cartoon series alums William Hanna, Jean Vanderpyl, and Joseph Barbera (sometimes omitted) even make cameo appearances! If you want to have a Yabba-Dabba-Doo time watching a big, live-action movie version of a cartoon series, than this is the movie to watch! Fun for children and adults of all ages! :D Enough said, true believers! ;) Expand

To be fair, I actually really enjoyed this movie, for what it is: A live action movie based on an old cartoon. And for me that is exactly what this movie is. It looks like a cartoon, it feel like a cartoon and almost everything in the movieTo be fair, I actually really enjoyed this movie, for what it is: A live action movie based on an old cartoon. And for me that is exactly what this movie is. It looks like a cartoon, it feel like a cartoon and almost everything in the movie feels like a cartoon.

The only real gripe I have with this movie is casting. Rick Moranis and Rosie O'Donnell are not Barney and Betty. It is obvious they are really trying to play the parts, but they just don't quite pull it off.

Overall:
Casting a side, this movie is clearly trying its hardest to be loyal to the source material, and to that end I think it does a good job. A fun movie, that is perhaps a bit too kid friendly, but still a good time.

This was a very enjoyable film and a good parody of the TV series, very similar to what the Brady Bunch films did. All four actors chosen for Fred, Wilma, Barney & Betty were spot on and portray them perfectly! It's corny with cheese on topThis was a very enjoyable film and a good parody of the TV series, very similar to what the Brady Bunch films did. All four actors chosen for Fred, Wilma, Barney & Betty were spot on and portray them perfectly! It's corny with cheese on top but in the right way as this is exactly what the film needed. The film set also looked just amazing! A little predictable, sure, but fans of the series will be right at home here as they stay very true to them to give us a very enjoyable movie Collapse

This one was one of the hardest movies we had to talk about. Every time we tried to break down the plot of this movie we found ourselves derailing into completely unrelated nonsense. Got some great jokes out of it though. Listen to ourThis one was one of the hardest movies we had to talk about.
