What’s with the film’s odd preoccupation with such adult themes as class, money, and sex?

The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas stumbles at its outset by setting up an adult premise inevitably undone by the film's aspirations to family entertainment.

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.

Viva Rock Vegas is nothing more than eye candy, and not a very tasty piece at that.

Fun and funny.

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.

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.

If you need a quick cartoon high, and a few cheap laughs, before the real summer movies begin, Viva Rock Vegas is your temporary fix.

All you really need to know is that it's an idea that should never have been tried once, much less twice.

Kids will love the crowd-pleasing depiction of an entire prehistoric world, complete with an adorable baby Dino -- and loads of great sight gags and puns.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

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

Falls from interestingly loopy to tiresome.
