In this live-action prequel to The Flintstones (1994), the Flintstones and the Rubbles go on a trip to Rock Vegas, where Wilma Slaghoople (Kristen Johnston) is pursued by playboy Chip Rockefeller (Thomas Gibson).
When his parents have to go out of town, Dennis stays with Mr. and Mrs. Wilson. The little menace is driving Mr. Wilson crazy, but Dennis is just trying to be helpful. Even to the thief who's arrived in town.
The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
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

John Candy was considered for the role of Fred Flintstone. The Flintstones (1960) was his all time favorite cartoon, but he passed away in 1994. Candy also previously portrayed the role of Buck Russell in Uncle Buck, a role for which John Goodman was considered for. See more »

The film is book-ended with live-action versions of The Flintstones (1960) opening and closing credits:
Fred Flintstone knocks off from work and picks up his family and the Rubbles and takes them all to the drive-in cinema
the Flintstones and Rubbles return home and go to bed, but when Fred puts the cat out it locks him out of his house.
I think overall it was a great movie. It was pretty funny.
I thought that the flintstones was a great movie. I just think that pebbles is so cute. But I was just watching The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas tonight with my cousins and I just do not understand why they filmed that one after The Flintstones Movie. Because in the The Flintstones Movie they already have pebbles,bam bam and Dino. But in the Viva Rock Vegas one..Fred wins Dino at the fair, and betty and barney, and fred and wilma just meet. To me it just doesn't make any sense why they wouldn't make the rock vegas movie then the flintstones movie.
