    Synopsis


    The Flintstones
    The good (if not fully evolved) citizens of Bedrock make their way to the big screen in this live-action adaptation of the popular animated series of the 1960s. Fred Flintstone (John Goodman) and his best friend Barney Rubble (Rick Moranis) work together at the Slate and Company Rock Quarry. When Fred loans Barney some money that allows him and his wife Betty (Rosie O'Donnell) to adopt a child, Barney is looking for a way to show his gratitude. Barney thinks he's found one when the executives at Slate and Company announce that they're giving all their employees intelligence tests to help determine future promotions. When Barney switches his high-scoring test with Fred's, his plan works -- but not quite the way he had hoped: Fred is deemed executive material and given a big promotion, complete with a sexy secretary (Halle Berry) who makes his wife Wilma (Elizabeth Perkins) jealous, while Barney is soon out of a job and can't pay his bills. Bill Hanna and Joseph Barbara, who created the original television series, make cameo appearances here; Elizabeth Taylor gives a fine comic performance as Wilma's nagging mother, and Harvey Korman provides the voice of the Dictabird. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Flintstones is not that bad of a family film i saw this when it came out in theaters back in 94 and i like it bc when i went to see it i was not sure if it was going to be any good and i was shock bc i did like it and it is pretty good movie that was base off the saturday morning cartoon and john goodman plays fred Flintstone very well and even looks like him and it is good movie for the whole family to watch and the blu-ray looks and sounds better than the dvd and the blu-ray has all the extras that was on the dvd so if you are a fan of the movie than i would buy it on blu-ray

      Using real life actors to fill the roles of the characters out of one of my childhood cartoon favorites had me concerned, until I saw it when it was released in theaters many years ago. What usually happens, past memories rarely live up to expectations, but I was pleased with the outcome. It's story may seem a bit corny, but that was how the original cartoon's progressed. Would rate it a 4.5.

      We were trying to get our kids into flu stones like we were as kids so picked this up really cheap to see how it went over. They loved it. Some of the acting and script isn't necessarily top notch but it is a good enough and enjoyable adaptation of a classic cartoon. They want to watch this over and over now

      Watching this movie earlier today brought back memories of seeing it in the theater when it first came out. I loved how the movie was similar to the cartoon: the set design, the dinosaur powered gadgets, the cars, etc. I think I enjoyed it as much as the first time I watched it. Yabba Dabba Doo!!!

      Watched the cartoon everyday after school when I was a kid so was excited to see a live action movie with the perfect Fred Flinstone, John Goodman though all the casting is spot on and the animal helpers have their time for jokes. Such a fun movie to take you back to a simpler time.

      This movie on Blu Ray was a delight to watch. Although this is not a new movie, it was great to see the actors portray the animated cartoon characters in real life. The story, even though predictable was still a delight to watch.

      This kids will enjoy this one. The picture and audio quality aren't very impressive. The extras (i.e., "Discovering Bedrock" documentary, etc.), however, are great. Worth the price of the blu-ray.

      If you love the cartoon series The Flintstones, you really will like this live-action adaptation based on the popular animated series. It's really funny. John Goodman is perfect as Fred Flintstone. 5 stars.
