It's not delightful or funny or exciting, and for long stretches, it looks exactly like hapless actors standing in front of big rocks and reciting sitcom dialogue.

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

Nothing new or clever is employed in Viva Rock Vegas.

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.

Full of leaden one-liners and dull puns.

The prequel is like eating a second helping of underdone bronto burger and being kept awake by the resulting indigestion-induced Dali-esque nightmare.

The jokes are pathetic.

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.

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

Forsaking story for sight gags and brief comedic moments, the film simply doesn't have enough of them to compensate for a lame and lackluster plot.

Here's one that should have stayed buried under a rock pile down at Fred and Barney's quarry.

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