This second live action spin-off from the much-loved 1960s cartoon series tells the story of how Fred (Mark Addy) and Barney (Stephen Baldwin) got together with Wilma (Kristen Johnston) and Betty (Jane Krakowski). It certainly isn't plain sailing for Fred and Wilma, not with Wilma's mother (Joan Collins) attempting to sabotage the budding romance and her ex-boyfriend Chip Rockefeller (Thomas Gibson) trying to break Fred at the gaming tables of Rock Vegas. And things are no easier for Barney and Betty, the rocky road to love taking a major detour when she sees him with Chip's friend Roxie (Alex Meneses) and takes her revenge by going off with the arrogant rock star Mick Jagged (Alan Cumming).
Kids will enjoy the dinosaurs, gaudy prehistoric decor, and cartoon humour of The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas; but adults will find fewer morsels of entertainment, although the sly performance of Alan Cumming (Eyes Wide Shut) as the Great Gazoo, an alien sent to Earth to observe human mating behaviour is a highlight. The movie begins before Fred (Mark Addy from The Full Monty) and Wilma (Kirsten Johnston from Third Rock from the Sun) Flintstone ever met, back when Wilma was an unhappy rich girl seeking happiness in a less snobby environment. Running away from her smothering mother (Joan Collins!) and an oily suitor, Chip Rockefeller (Thomas Gibson from Dharma and Greg), she winds up at a drive-in restaurant where she meets Betty (Jane Krakowski from Ally McBeal), a waitress who thinks Wilma is actually homeless and invites the runaway to live with her. Our blue-collar heroes, Fred and Barney Rubble (Stephen Baldwin from The Usual Suspects), ask the girls out on a double date, and before long Fred and Wilma bond over bowling. But it turns out that Chip is in debt to a ruthless loan shark and needs Wilma's money, so he invites the couples to his new casino in Rock Vegas, where he plots nefariously to ruin their blossoming love. The plot holds no surprises and the dialogue is clumsy, but there's a blithe dimwittedness to the whole affair that makes it curiously inoffensive. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com

Brian Levant directed both films, and the first one had excellent casting, and good performances from the stellar cast. The lesser known actors in the squeal are hit and miss. Mark Addy fails to fill the shoes of John Goodman as Fred Flintstone, Stephen Baldwin was excellent in 'The Usual Suspects', but his portrayal of Barney Rubble is laughable, and the always obnoxious Joan Collins (predictably) doesn't hold a candle to Elizabeth Taylor as Wilma's mother. However, I will say that Jane Krakowski was better cast than Rosie O'Donnell as Betty Rubble, but her acting wasn't. However, she did bring a certain sweetness and nativity to her dialogue which Rosie didn't.
The film's script is poor for the most part, immature even for children, and the original cartoon's humour which has entertained generations of kids over the years just isn't there. The film is notably tacky, and reminded me of a straight to DVD film, making it hard to believe that this turkey made it to the cinemas.
As the story goes, best mates Fred and Barney are trying to find girlfriends, whilst the well to do Wilma is dominated by her mother, who wants her to marry casino-owner Chip Rockefeller. Wilma looses her temper and storms out of home, whilst going to a burger bar, she meets waitress Betty, who mistakes Wilma as a ''caveless'' person. Betty takes pity on her and offers to share her apartment. The boys meet the girls, relationships develop, however Fred discovers he has competition with Chip, who devises a plan to get Wilma back by inviting the four of them to stay at his resort in Rock Vegas.Read more ›
The film is a prequel explaining how Fred and Barney met Wilma and Betty. Most of the credit here goes to these principals, who bring a unique charm to their roles, and although I didn't quite see Wilma like that, I was soon totally convinced. Alan Cummings, although truly awful as Mick Jagged - perhaps intentionally - is wonderfully smarmy as the Great Gazoo, the alien gratuitously, but entertainingly inserted into the drama. All in all, a cinematic and musical delight to be savoured.
So what if the adorable pet Dino was the most intelligent character in the film (he knew what to do at the right times), this is a film for all ages, for when you want to escape from everyday reality.
You've got problems to overcome, a baddy being rightly thwarted and values being questioned, before coming to the happy ending. I wouldn't exactly call this brainless. It's actually just a refreshingly inocent story.
The trouble with a franchise like this is that there will be some companies that exploit a craze such as this and find ways to sneak you out of your money and rip you off. One such example is Flintstones Viva Rock Vegas.
As bad as the original "The Flintstones" was, "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas" is a whole lot worse. Perhaps there is no coincidence the two movies acquire the same director, Brain Levant. This man has created bad films before ("Problem Child 2," "Jingle All The Way"), but never anything as putrid as this pile of bones. After reading this critique, I fear you may misinterpret my implication; this movie is not so bad that it's funny, it is so bad it's bad.
