Preceded by massive hype, popular '60s cartoon comes to life thanks to a huge budget and creative sets and props. Seems that Fred's (Goodman) being set up by evil corporate types Cliff Vandercave (MacLachlan) and Miss Rosetta Stone (Berry) to take the fall for their embezzling scheme. Soon he gives up dining at RocDonald's for Cavern on the Green and cans best buddy Barney (Moranis). Forget the lame plot (32 writers took a shot at it) and sit back and enjoy the spectacle. Goodman's an amazingly true-to-type Fred, O'Donnell has Betty's giggle down pat, and Perkins looks a lot like Wilma. Wilma's original voice, VanderPyl, has a cameo as Mrs. Feldspar; listen for Korman's voice as the Dictabird. Add half a bone if you're under 12.

The Flintstones
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

I used to love watching the televsion series of The Flintstones and I was really excited to see the movie. The Flintstones movie came out in 1994 and has a running time of 92 minutes. John Goodman (as Fred Flintstone), Elizabeth Perkins (as Wilma Flintstone), Rick Moranis (as Barney Rubble) and Rosie O’Donnell (as Betty Rubble) star in this fun comedy. Barney and Fred are best friends. They have the same jobs! They mine rocks. Fred and Barney take a test to see who is going to become the new vice president of the company. Barney switched the test scores so that Fred would get the job because Fred did a favor for Barney. That’s a great friendship! Trouble occurs with Fred’s new position when Cliff Vandercave tries to manipulate him to be in a bad scheme.
