Just watching it is fun. Following the plot is not so much fun.

Maybe it's because so many of the things they do in the movie are lifted directly from the show, but a lot of stuff seems stale.

Someone, somewhere gave the keys to the kingdom to director Brian Levant, who's leaden ways with screen comedy are amplified in this unfunny, hyperactive translation of a property that's best served through animation.

As asinine as Hollywood gets, only destined to see at least one sequel.

As Fred Flintstone might have put it: yabba-dabba-boo.

Some thirty six screenwriters made sure that the plot of the film is lame, original characters one-dimensional, and many elements of the story, like embezzlement and inter-office politics, totally incomprehensible for the little children.

If you spend the whole running time picturing Halle Berry nude on a sabertooth-tiger rug, The Flintonstones isn't so bad.
