Rating: 3/10 -- See website for more details. Full Review
Rating: 1/5 -- It's just a series of nicely shot and over-bright sets with the cast blocking your view of the background. Full Review
Rating: D -- Someone, somewhere gave the keys to the kingdom to director Brian Levant, who's leaden ways with screen comedy are amplified in this unfunny, hyperactive translation of a property that's best served through animation. Full Review
The 32 scriptwriters' idea of a joke is to suffix every name with rock. The opening title announces the film as a "Steven Spielrock" production. And it's downhill from there, with an avalanche of rubbish at our heels. Full Review
Independent on Sunday
Rating: 3/5 -- While the movie may act like a madeleine for television-obsessed baby-boomers, it works even better as a colorful playland that will appeal to small children.
New York Times
Rating: 3/5 -- Cartoonish live-action fun with well cast cast.
Yabba dabba doo! That modern stone-age family is back and on the big screen in this live-action version of the beloved cartoon series. When Fred Flintstone (John Goodman) generously loans his pal Barney Rubble (Rick Moranis) enough money to adopt a child, Barney wants to return the favor. So he helps Fred on his IQ test at the quarry... which gets Fred an executive position. But what Fred doesn't know is he's the sap meant to take the fall for a bunch of corporate con-men out to rook the company. The all-star cast is rounded out by Elizabeth Perkins as Wilma Flintstone and Rosie O'Donnell as Betty Rubble, with special appearances by Halle Berry, Elizabeth Taylor, Jay Leno, and the B-52's.
- Sharon Stone was initially asked to play the quarry temptress, Ms. Stone, before Halle Berry.
- The voice of the original Wilma, Jean Vander Pyl, seventy-four years old, was cast behind Dino in the congo line.
- Alan Reed, the original voice of Fred Flintstone, invented the phrase, "Yabba-dabba-do!"
- THE FLINTSTONES grossed a record-breaking $37.5 million in its first weekend, Memorial Day, on its way to a total haul of $130 million.
- Flintstonian fast food was offered at over 15,000 McDonald's world-wide.
