The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas ★★ 2000 (PG)

In a prequel to the 1994 film, a young Fred (Addy) and his best pal Barney (Baldwin) take their girlfriends Wilma (Johnson) and Betty (Krakowski) on a would-be romantic weekend to Rock Vegas. There's a whole lot going on, as runaway society girl Wilma is being wooed by playboy Chip Rockefeller (Gibson), Chip's trying to bankrupt and frame Fred, and the Great Gazoo (Cumming) is on hand to observe earthly mating habits. Everything is appropriately cartoonish, including the story and the acting. Unfortunately, the only ones who'll be entertained are the ones who are too young to remember the original series (or the original movie for that matter). 90m/C VHS, DVD . Mark Addy, Kristen Johnston, Stephen Baldwin, Jane Krakowski, Thomas Gibson, Joan Collins, Alan Cumming, Harvey Korman, Alex Meneses; D: Brian Levant; W: Harry Elfont, Deborah Kaplan, Jim Cash, Jack Epps Jr.; C: Jamie Anderson; M: David Newman.
