The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas

*

Yep, it's a prequel to The Flintstones. Young newlyweds Fred (Mark Addy) and Wilma (Kristen Johnson) leave their puppy Dino with friends Barney (Stephen Baldwin) and Betty (Jane Krakowski) to go on a trip to Rock Vegas. Joan Collins will play Wilma's mother, Pearl Slaghoople, and Harvey Korman will play her husband. Thomas Gibson will play Chip Rockefeller, the richest man in Rock Vegas, who has an eye on Wilma. Alan Cummings will play The Gret Gazoo. Brian Levant directs.

Capsule Review: Does anyone really think we needed a prequel to the live-action Flintstones movie? This is a film based on a film based on a cartoon show based on a television skit. You know what they say about a copy of a copy? It holds true here, and what we're left with is a fuzzy, indistinct plot with little merit. Jane Krakowski is the only improvement from the previous film, delivering a spot-on performance as Betty. The special effects are somewhat grander, but at it's core, this movie is much more hollow than a cartoon. (Universal)
