While the movie may act like a madeleine for television-obsessed baby-boomers, it works even better as a colorful playland that will appeal to small children.

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

It's just a series of nicely shot and over-bright sets with the cast blocking your view of the background.

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.
