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 does he know that he's being manipulated by his boss to be the fall guy for an embezzlement scheme. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

I think overall it was a great movie. It was pretty funny.
28 November 2002 | by bootylicious8665See all my reviews

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.
