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 does he know that he's being manipulated by his boss to be the fall guy for an embezzlement scheme.Written by

A live action version of The Flintstones (1960) had been in development for a number of years. Reportedly, this version would not have been made if John Goodman had turned down the role of Fred. See more »
If Bamm-Bamm is supposed to be the world's strongest kid, how did he allow himself and Pebbles to be tied up and captured? Couldn't he have knocked out Vandercave, or at the very least, broken the rope he was tied up with? See more »
Hey, back to work! You guys had a break two days ago!

GREAT PURE 90'S MAGICAL INNOCENT FUN.
I grew up in the 90's & it was a great time & so much better than today 2019,it seemed such a fun,innocent & happier time & a great time for feelgood family films such as Casper (1995),SpaceJam (1997),Jumanji (1995),Flubber (1998),Small Soldiers (1998),ConeHeads (1993) & many many more that came out during that Awesome time.
The Flintstones was a huge summertime blockbuster that's full of fun & Happy times mixed into a colourful live-action version of the classic cartoon.
I loved this movie when it came (i still do) & i remember so much merchandise & promotion for this,it was everywhere. I had action figures & fridge magnets & cups & all sorts from the movie!!! The Flintstones was huge in 1994!!!
Legendary Steven Spielberg was producer so you knew the effort & budget that went into this project was huge along with the nice Spielberg feel of family & sense of wonder.
John Goodman was PERFECT as Fred Flintstone,he gave a fully fun & often touching performance & is a joy to watch. He really brought the character to life but kept the silly funny feel of fred.
Legendary comic great Rick Moranis was also perfect as freds best buddy Barney Rubble & also plays his role with fun & Heart.
The whole cast is great & seemed to all be having so much fun!!! Rosie O'Donnell was good fun as Betty Rubble & Elizabeth Perkins is great as Wilma Flintstone.
The music is lovely & full of Nostalgia, the production design & sets are absolutely beautiful,they created such a stunningly beautiful world for the Flintstones & it's gorgeous!!!
The Flintstones is harmless,Happy & feelgood fun for the whole family & is a great film from my childhood growing up so i hold a special little spot in my heart for this lovely little comedy.
