The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas
Before the Flintstones were everyone's favorite Stone Age family, Fred was just a regular guy looking for the girl of his dreams, and his romance with Wilma sets the stage for this prequel to the 1994 screen adaptation of the popular cartoon series. Fred Flintstone (Mark Addy), a working-class caveman who earns his living at Mr. Slate's quarry, falls in love with wealthy heiress Wilma Slaghoople (Kristen Johnson).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As entertainment for kids, or for adults, it misjudges its audience by at least a millennium."
‑ Steve Uhler, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Um, no surprises here. Better than the original."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Full of leaden one-liners and dull puns."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"Viva Rock Vegas yabba-dabba-doesn't."
‑ Todd Anthony, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"An hour and a half of pure agony."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"The jokes are pathetic."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"What’s with the film’s odd preoccupation with such adult themes as class, money, and sex?"
‑ Steven D. Greydanus, Decent Films Guide
"Anyone who hated the first movie will almost certainly hate this one too."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"A sad, strange, dismal thing to inflict upon a child, let alone their parents, who've taken them with something like, say, fun in mind."
‑ Wesley Morris, San Francisco Examiner
"You'll find yourself scanning the screen for interesting geometric shapes ... since the script won't hold your attention."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"It's not delightful or funny or exciting, and for long stretches, it looks exactly like hapless actors standing in front of big rocks and reciting sitcom dialogue."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"This brightly colored, lowbrow comedy is so dumb it could get lost on its way to the take-up reel, and it's proud to be dumb. But it's also clueless: Who makes a movie about dating aimed squarely at 10-year-olds?"
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A convoluted mess that will likely appeal to neither the young nor the old."
‑ Brad Haynes, Orlando Weekly
"Much like a hunk of rock candy--sort of interesting-looking but ultimately none too fulfilling."
‑ Thom Bennett, Film Journal International
"The new Flintstones movie is bad. Prehistorically bad. Neolithically bad. Bad enough that you should take your youngsters and run in the opposite direction to My Dog Skip."
‑ Karen Hershenson, Contra Costa Times
