The Flintstones (1994)

In this live-action feature of the cartoon show, Fred Flintstone finally gets the job he’s always wanted, but it may just come at a price. (IMDb)

With its cheesy set design, wooden dialogue/acting, and poorly written bare-bones plot (might as well add to the film’s plethora of puns) The Flintstones is mostly just a showcase for a bunch of clever culture spins as per its prehistoric setting (the warthog waste disposal, “RocDonalds”, etc.). They’re groan-inducing, but fun, and along with a couple of surprising laugh-out-loud moments (can opening bird to the camera: “This job sucks!”) they make The Flintstones watchable-but just barely.

5.1/10
