Storyline

The Flintstones and the Rubbles are modern stone-age families. Fred and Barney work at Slate and Company, mining rock. Fred gives Barney some money so he and Betty can adopt a baby. When Fred and Barney take a test to determine who should become the new associate vice president, Barney returns the favor by switching his test answers for Fred's, whose answers aren't very good. Fred gets the executive position, but little realizes that he's being manipulated by Cliff Vandercave to be the fall guy for an embezzlement scheme. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Trivia

John Goodman revealed in a behind the scene's documentary, that he was going to have both his fourth fingers removed for the filming and then stitched back on after, to resemble Fred as in the cartoon. However Brian Levant told him not to go through it as he thought it would be a waste of time and that no one would notice. See more »

Great fun!
6 March 2001 | by (cincinnati, ohio) – See all my reviews

Making a live-action, feature film out of a cartoon show is definitely not an easy task, but the creators of this film pulled it off. THE FLINTSTONES is one of the most entertaining family films to come along in a good while. The great cast has a ball, particularly Elizabeth Taylor as Fred Flintstone's mother-in-law. Highly recommended!
