Um, no surprises here. Better than the original.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

What’s with the film’s odd preoccupation with such adult themes as class, money, and sex?
Full Review | Original Score: D

This brightly colored, lowbrow comedy is so dumb it could get lost on its way to the take-up reel, and it's proud to be dumb. But it's also clueless: Who makes a movie about dating aimed squarely at 10-year-olds?
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Full of leaden one-liners and dull puns.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

As entertainment for kids, or for adults, it misjudges its audience by at least a millennium.

Anyone who hated the first movie will almost certainly hate this one too.

A convoluted mess that will likely appeal to neither the young nor the old.

Viva Rock Vegas yabba-dabba-doesn't.

A sad, strange, dismal thing to inflict upon a child, let alone their parents, who've taken them with something like, say, fun in mind.

Falls from interestingly loopy to tiresome.

Much like a hunk of rock candy--sort of interesting-looking but ultimately none too fulfilling.

The first live-action movie of The Flintstones in 1994 was a Tyrannosaurus wreck, a production design in search of a story. Now director Brian Levant has made a prequel ... that's almost as dumb.

An hour and a half of pure agony.

You'll find yourself scanning the screen for interesting geometric shapes ... since the script won't hold your attention.

The new Flintstones movie is bad. Prehistorically bad. Neolithically bad. Bad enough that you should take your youngsters and run in the opposite direction to My Dog Skip.

Plays like an episode or two of the TV show, stretched out to fill an hour and a half or so.

We need another live-action Flintstones like we need a club to the head.

The key to appreciating The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas is low expectations.

Ultimately, The Flintstones leaves one as cold as marble.

If you are a kid -- or the parent of a kid -- this movie may, in fact, be your best bet out there. But if you are neither, Viva Rock Vegas is much more of a gamble.
