Rating: 1.5/4 -- The prequel is like eating a second helping of underdone bronto burger and being kept awake by the resulting indigestion-induced Dali-esque nightmare.
Rating: 3/4 -- A pleasant surprise.
...Gazoo is a refreshing and ironic [character]...
Sight and Sound
Rating: D+ -- Nothing new or clever is employed in Viva Rock Vegas. Full Review
The jokes are pathetic.
...Addy is the main attraction, sustaining a spot-on Fred impression...
Rating: 3/5 -- It is better than the original. Full Review
In this live-action prequel to the 1994 comedy hit, THE FLINTSTONES, the history of the two Stone Age couples are explored with cartoon-like comedy. Their fateful unions begin when quarry workers Barney (Stephen Baldwin) and Fred (THE FULL MONTY'S Mark Addy doing an amazing American accent) meet Betty (Jane Krakowski of ALLEY MACBEAL fame) and Wilma (Kristen Johnston of 3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN) at a Bedrock burger joint. Betty is a bubbly waitress, and Wilma, as it turns out, is a poor little rich girl who has run away from the prospect of a loveless marriage to once-wealthy Chip Rockefeller (DHARMA & GREG's Thomas Gibson). Desperate to marry Wilma for her fortune, the scheming Chip offers the newly-in-love Betty and Barney, and Wilma and Fred, an all-expenses-paid trip to his Rock Vegas casino hotel, planning all the while to get Wilma back into his clutches. This brightly colored comedy filled with references to old Elvis movies, is, at times, so intentionally silly that it's absolutely hilarious (picture a giant fartosaurus, Joan Collins doing a spit take, and Mark Addy and Stephen Baldwin in show girls' dresses). But, though there's plenty of child-friendly sight gags involving cute dinosaurs, it's not for kids. Then again, neither was the original cartoon series which aired first during adult prime time.
