Family friendly fun comedy

This live action version of the classic animated TV show is fun and family friendly overall. It's kind of like Scooby Doo (2002) in the way that it's not G rated, it's got some adult references, especially involving Berry's character. But the references really aren't explicit and I still think that all families will really enjoy this film. The casting for all the roles is just perfect. John Goodman is a great choice for Fred. Rosie O'Donnell is great as Betty. I loved Elizabeth Perkins in the role of Wilma. And Rick Moranis is a very good Barney. And of course we can't leave out the great late Elizabeth Taylor who plays Wilma's mother. The script is very much like other live action versions of TV shows, it involves a greedy villain who's after nothing but money. I really like Halle Berry in her seductive secretary/bad guy role. The visuals are done well, the shots are all very true to the original show. Adults may enjoy this and I still enjoy watching it, but a family setting is probably the best audience for this movie. It's just good fun, nothing that great or Oscar winning, but it'll make a fairly fun movie night. 7/10.

A family film, more focused on the emotions and moral lessons than proper to the comedy.

I always liked the cartoon "Flintstones", which I went on TV when I was a kid, but this movie proved to be much weaker than I thought it could be. The plot starts well, puts Fred in a morally reprehensible position, getting an enviable promotion at the expense of his faithful friend, Barney, and confronting him with regrets and consequences. But this ends up making the film too serious and thoughtful, erasing the very fragile attempts to make comedy that are tempted through it. I confess I was expecting a stronger bet on comedy and this disappointed me but, after that, I was able to appreciate this work better and enjoy it for what it is: a family film, with a moral lesson behind and emotional moments, but able to please both children and adults.

The work done to recreate scenarios and props of the cartoon is quite satisfactory and shows us most of environments we have become accustomed to associate with it. John Goodman is a good Fred Flintstone. The physical similarities have helped but the psychological construction of the character also deserves congratulations. Elizabeth Perkins gave life to Wilma in a very interesting way. Rick Moranis was OK as Barney, but made the character too naive to be worthy of credibility. Rosie O'Donnell was OK too. Halle Berry was decent in one more character where the actress does not have much to do (well, since I never considered her particularly talented, maybe it's better). It was nice to see the diva Elizabeth Taylor, although in a small cameo Wilma's mother.

A perfect movie

If there's such a thing as a perfect movie, The Flintstones is it. It's absolutely hilarious, with no downtime and no dated jokes. If you've seen the original Hanna Barbara cartoon, you'll probably pee from laughing so hard, and if you haven't, well, you'll still probably pee from laughing so hard. I saw this movie in the theaters when I was a little girl and laughed my head off, thinking it was the first movie to ever make caveman jokes. Just last week, I watched my DVD for the hundredth time and laughed just as hard.

John Goodman as Fred Flintstone, Rick Moranis as Barney Rubble, Elizabeth Perkins as Wilma, and Rosie O'Donnell as Betty are all totally perfect. The original song is included at the start and end of the film, and all the throwbacks to the cartoon are side-splittingly funny. Modern touches are incredibly clever and tie in seamlessly to the setting. For example, the Flintstones go to the drive-in movies to watch "Gorge Lucas's Tar Wars", and the band The B-52s guest star in a swanky nightclub as "The BC-52s".

In the film, Fred and Wilma help their best friends adopt a child, and in return, Barney helps Fred get a promotion at work. But, as the incredibly dumb Fred moves up the corporate ladder, he just might get duped by the slippery smooth Cliff, played by Kyle MacLachlin, and his secretary, a young Halle Berry who gets her own theme music whenever she walks in the room.

It's silly and lovely, and best of all, Elizabeth Taylor puts the finishing touch on the film in her role as Wilma's mom. It's my favorite of her performances; pretty much every one of her lines has become a permanent phrase in my household. If only she'd been given more screen time! But, as she says in the movie, "Let's not let a little thing like that spoil the party—Conga line!"
