Didn't remember much from this one when I saw a long time ago other than Halle Berry, but didn't realize it was her until many years later. Gave it another watch to see how it held up because I remember liking it a bit. John Goodman Is Fred Flintstone and Rick Moranis is Barney Rubble. It tells how the Rubbles get Bam-Bam, but that feels like a secondary story. The real story is how Rubble switches his test for the new VP of the company with Fred and ends up getting fired for scoring so low. This leads to Flintstone being in charge His boss is Kyle MacLachian playing a not-so-Agent-Cooper role as his evil boss who uses him to deflect the blame of downsizing and other various corporate misdeeds.
I felt this was a little too depressing for what it is, essentially a kids movie which should be light hearted and fun, but instead, feels weird. There's not much comedy to be found, though there are the Flintstone type things of Fred being a big buffon. Otherwise, it just didn't work. Halle Berry is still easy on the eyes in this one and that's still one of the few bright spots in the movie.
