THE FLINTSTONES IN VIVA ROCK VEGAS (2000 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas—a Fred Flintstone live-action movie—presents nothing new and runs on a simple storyline. While Rick Moranis and John Goodman have better charisma for casting these characters in the 1994 live action The Flintstones movie, Stephen Baldwin and Mark Addy perform adequately as younger versions of those characters in this prequel movie. Overall, it’s worth a watch for Flintstone story fans.

Storyline

Bachelors Fred Flintstone (Mark Addy) and Barney Rubble (Stephen Baldwin) meet their future mates, Wilma Slaghoople (Kristen Johnston) and Betty O’Shale (Jane Krakowski), and work through the obstacles that hinder their romantic involvement.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The Flintstones live action movie is better entertainment than this prequel mostly due to casting; but for audiences who desire to see where the two marriages between friends originated, the film works.
