Movie Reviews

Time - 8/10 by Richard Schickel And while more than 30 writers worked on the screenplay and untold numbers labored to re-create the ambiance and effects that the animators once tossed off with a few squiggles of their pencils, The Flintstones doesn't feel overcalculated, over-produced or overthought.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Owen Gleiberman The Flintstones is a big, shiny package of comic nostalgia, as much a theme park as a movie.
The New York Times - 7/10 by Caryn James The greatest lost opportunity in The Flintstones is that its writers (more than 30) are so faithful to the 60's television series that they failed to add enough updated pop-culture references. The few included are among the film's best jokes.
Chicago Sun-Times - 6/10 by Roger Ebert This is a great-looking movie, a triumph of set design and special effects, creating a fantasy world halfway between suburbia and a prehistoric cartoon.
Variety - 6/10 by Todd McCarthy After lightly going through the motions of a plot, it all ends up in the quarry, where assorted machinery provides the excuse for a parade of slapstick gags and amusement park-like predicaments that seem mostly lumbering.
ReelViews - 5/10 by James Berardinelli The quality of the writing is more than a notch below that of our show. Most of the jokes aren't as witty, and the laughs come less frequently. Maybe it's because so many of the things they do in the movie are lifted directly from the show, but a lot of stuff seems stale.
Austin Chronicle - 5/10 by Robert Faires They're admirable attempts to update the old cartoon's broad social satire and add some depth to these characters, but they're played too gravely (gravelly?) to work in this wild world, and they don't prompt the same silly satisfaction that the show did.
Los Angeles Times - 5/10 by Kenneth Turan Sadly the plot leaves a lot to be desired with major flaws never far away. The in-jokes are amusing but their novelty soon begins to wear thin.
USA Today - 4/10 by Susan Wloszczyna The cast looks sound enough—John Goodman as Fred Flintstone, Elizabeth Perkins as Wilma, Rick Moranis and Rosie O'Donnell as the Rubbles—but the script, cobbled together by a crowd of writers, gives them nothing but a handful of limp gags.
Washington Post - 1/10 by Desson Thomson Leadenly directed and almost soberly scripted, it never captures the campy brightness of the original series -- the herky-jerky animation, the wacky sound effects, the distinctive character voices and that cheesy laugh track.
Chicago Reader - 0/10 by Jonathan Rosenbaum Considering the 32 writers (including Tom S. Parker, Jim Jennewein, and Steven E. de Souza) who worked on this live-action adaptation of the 60s Hanna-Barbera cartoon series about a Stone Age family, one might have expected a few funny lines here and there, but this is mirthless (and worthless) from top to bottom.
User Review - 10/10 by SimpsonFans don't listen to the critics. I had a yabba yabba doo time watching this awesome compared movie to the animated TV series. the four actors who played the Flintstones and the Rubbles were great! Fred Flintstone is voiced by John Goodman (Monsters Inc.), Barney Rubble is voiced by Rick Moranis (Spaceballs, Honey, I Shrunk The Kids and Brother Bear), Wilma is voiced by Elizabeth Perkins (Finding Nemo and Big) and Betty is voiced by Rosie O'Donnell (Tarzan and Sleepless in Seattle). This sure is a great movie.
