Product Description

as is

Amazon.com

This pleasant, lightweight live-action version of the popular cartoon is about as good as you might expect. The kids should love the broad humor and the Henson Studios creatures, but like The Addams Family movies, the look and the cast are the best things going for it. Considering that the nature of the material is so sparse, the thinly plotted story works better than other TV-to-movie fare. Our fabulous Stone Age man is promoted per a calculated move by a scheming exec (Kyle MacLachlan, whose casting ensured at least one cute guy). As a comedy, the humor is one-note and flat for anyone older than 12. The special-effects creatures look wondrous, though not as seamless as in other movies, such as in Roger Rabbit. The most joyous moments come during the full-scale re-creations of the famous credits. The Flinstones provided a major launching pad for Halle Berry as a vamping secretary. --Doug Thomas

John Goodman Does A Great Job Playing Fred Flintstone.

I liked how the movie producers really went out of their way to make a believable looking Flintstones world.

I have loved this movie since it first came to the theatre. I must have seen it at least twelve times in the theatres. After I watched the movie at the theatre I simply had to have the soundtrack. At the time I only bought cassettes, so I got the Flintstones cassette. Just yesterday, I bought the Flintstones soundtrack on CD. When the movie came out on VHS I bought it. I plan on buynig the DVD.
Rick Moranis is one of my all time favorite actors. He was a fantastic at playing Barney Rubble. Barney was always my favorite character.
A few years ago, when I went to Orlando, Florida I got to see the actual Flintstones car, and some of the other props from the film. Naturally, I had to have pictures taken of them.
If you haven't seen this film I suggest going to your local Blockbuster and renting it. You won't be disapointed.

I thought this movie would be terrible,but when i saw it I loved it. It was very funny. I also like Rosie Odonnell as Betty. John Goodman was a good Fred,Elizibeth Perkins was a wonderful Wilma,and Rick Moranis was very good as Barney.But my favorite charactar is the dicta-bird.

This is what you'd call a "cute" movie, the cuteness mainly being the funny takeoff on objects, such as regular household appliances, that you see in here caveman-era-style. Most of those are prehistorical creatures having to perform the tasks of cleaning, but they are clever and funny to watch. In fact, there are so many of them it's tough to catch all of them. It would take a number of viewing to fully appreciate all the visuals in here.

When I first saw this, I expected a really stupid movie. I had enjoyed but not been a big fan of the animated "Flintsones" series on TV, and thought this would be more of the same except with real actors. Actually, it was much better and had a surprisingly good cast for such a lightweight cartoon comedy.

I mean, who would expect a big star like Elizabeth Taylor to be in this movie? She had the funniest lines, too, I thought. Her put-downs of poor "Fred" (the rotund John Goodman is perfectly cast) included lines such as, "the only good thing you provide for my daughter is shade." This is quite an eclectic cast with the likes of Taylor, Goodman, Rick Moranis, Rosie O'Donnell, Elizabeth Perkins, Kyle MacLaughlan and Halle Berry.

What can be said about a live-action cartoon that features Elizabeth Taylor, Johnathan Winters and the B(C)-52s? Only this: Yabba Dabba Do!

This delightfully stupid and silly expression of the hit cartoon from the early '60s is particularly well cast regarding Fred and Barney. After all, lovable big lunk John Goodman and SCTV great Rick Moranis look remarkably like their respective characters even before makeup. (If only Moranis could have worn contacts to give him Little Orphan Annie pupil-free eyes. Oh well.)

There's no shortage of stone-age versions of modern conveniences, and lines such as passengers on an in-flight pterdactyl being told, "And the Grand Canyon will be on your right ... in about 15,000,000 years." Elizabeth Taylor's best line is likely (speaking in disapproval to her daughter Wilma), "And when I think of all the sacrifices your father made for you - goats, oxen. Your brother Jerry."

The movie starts and ends just like the cartoon did, with the upbeat theme song in tact (BTW, have you ever noticed that the Flintstones theme and the Jetsons theme are completely interchangeable? Try it.) The movie-within-a-movie twist actually added some kind of existential everyman something or other to the story. Maybe. Could be, anyway.

A welcome diversion from way too cool.

Well after 17 years, I finally watched the Flintstones movie. The reason I put it off for so many years is because -despite mildly enjoying the cartoon- I thought the whole concept looked WAY too silly to make into a "fantasy meets reality" so to speak. And... it *is* too silly, haha.

There's actually two reasons I'm not giving in and awarding a 5-star rating to this film. One is that it features Rosie O'Donnell as Betty. WHAT? That's like the worst idea ever! I think Halle Berry should have been Betty. Someone who's extremely attractive needed to fit that role. I was definitely surprised when I seen Rosie wearing that blue outfit instead of someone who's extremely beautiful. I mean no disrespect to Rosie who's probably a good actress, but she's ENTIRELY inappropriate for this particular role.

As always, Rick Moranis proves that going into early retirement was a horrible idea, because his portrayal of Barney is spot-on fantastic! His facial expressions always seemed extremely funny to me, and he continues his hilarious ways once again whenever his Barney character and Fred get into a jam. A major highlight.

Fred being played by John Goodman is another pretty good idea, though honestly he's not one of my favorite actors. He plays a really clueless guy without a lick of common sense... just like the way Fred's character *should* be portrayed.

I guess Wilma is pretty normal, though I expected her to be more exciting and upbeat than what we get.

I'm definitely surprised at the list of popular actors and actresses who starred in the Flintstones, further surprising me with the incredible amount of famous depth that was involved in the creation of this movie. Elizabeth Taylor? For real?
