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>

Crazy Credits

There are no logos at the beginning of the film. After the opening scene, we get a live-action version of the cartoon opening, which concludes with the main characters at a drive-in movie theater. The movie they see starts with a parody of the Universal Pictures logo, designed in Bedrock fashion: it features a prehistoric Earth with the single continent of Pangaea and reads "UNIVERSHELL". It is also accompanied by the 1960s theme music from Revue Productions (which Universal owned), which is fitting for a 1960s cartoon adaptation. See more »

Alternate Versions

A credit for Mel Blanc as Dino was added to home video versions. The speed of the credits scroll was adjusted to make room without extending the music. See more »

Well-made live action imitation...
12 January 2003 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 1/12/2003 - 7 out of 10(Dir-Brian Levant): Well-made live action imitation of the popular Hanna-Barbera cartoon series. Maybe it's because Hanna & Barbera were involved and were two of the executive producers of the movie as well as having small roles in the production. Besides this, this classic tale of life in the stone age had tremendous casting in the way of John Goodman(Fred Flintstone), Rick Moranis(Barney Rubbel) and the entire group for that matter. The movie starts with the Rubbel family adding a new member in the adopted Bam-Bam and then the rest of the movie matches pretty much the way the two families lived their lives & worked together as neighbors in the prehistoric town of Bedrock. Of course there is evil-a-foot within a demented man in a higher position in the stone quarry who tries to frame Fred and the rest of the movie is a culmination of all this. What is great about the movie & the series the Flintstones is that no matter what trouble they got in, the families always patched it up in the end showing us what true friends our made of. And besides all this the movie was funny & visually appealing too !!
