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

No fewer than 35 writers worked on the film. Steven E. de Souza turned in the original draft in 1987, though Michael Wilson's 1992 draft later became the working model. When director Brian Levant signed on, he recruited Gary Ross to handle the screenplay; Ross turned in his draft in 1993. This was junked. Various other writers, including Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel, worked on the script before Levant was finally happy in August 1993. Though just three writers ended up being credited, a total of 32 people (including Levant and producer Bruce Cohen) were awarded the film's Golden Raspberry for Worst Screenplay. See more »

This is a live action take on the classic cartoon. I actually like the visual styles. It's got the crazy rock look. But they needed more colors and brighter colors.
When Fred (John Goodman) gets promoted, evil sleazy executive Cliff Vandercave (Kyle MacLachlan) sees a stupid patsy to take the blame for his embezzling scheme. First Fred is forced to fire Barney (Rick Moranis), then the rest of the employees. Then he signs all kinds of memos without reading them. It all comes back to haunt him when the embezzling comes to light.
The story is too serious. Not only is there scheming, but also fighting, firing people, money troubles and kidnapping. It's a children's cartoon. There is too much danger especially for the kids. It needs to be much lighter.
