It’s another installment of Crossing the Line, where Joey looks at live-action adaptations of cartoons! This time around, Joey finds himself in Florida and decides to look back at one of the many Hanna-Barbera adaptations that failed on all fronts: The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas! In this prequel to the 1994 Flintstones movie, we get a smoking hot Betty, a dumbass villain with an even dumber motivation, Stephen Baldwin in the role he was born to play, and worst of all, a pointless and unintentionally creepy appearance by the Great Gazoo!

    The first Flintstones movie had a cringe-inducing plot, this looks even worse…

      Oh, this one is definitely cringe-worthy!

    I have a soft spot for the first Flintstones movie, as dumb as it is. This one actually has rather good casting, but that’s about it.

      Pretty much my sediment exact! The first film is a guilty pleasure of mine, you can’t go wrong with John Goodman playing Fred Flintstone!

        sediment?  Now you’re throwing real rock puns in with Flintstones puns?

          Lol, the movie must’ve subliminally warped my mind, because I didn’t even think of that! :P

            This movie warped a lot of things glad the Nile isn’t flowing backwards otherwise we might get another crappy Mummy movie, and Sursum Ursa would freak out if that happened…

    I agree about the first Flintstones movie. I mean, sure it’s dumb but…it’s The Flintstones. Let’s be real, here: when you think about The Flintstones, do you think “highbrow entertainment for the intellectual artistic set?” Of course not. The movie was everything you would expect from a live action Flintstones movie, and John Goodman and Rick Moranis are pretty much exactly who you’d want for Fred and Barney. What’s to complain about?

    As for this movie, I really have nothing to say about it except that I never liked Gazoo.

    After having such a financial smash hit with the first Flintstones movie, they got so much wrong with this prequel.

    In the cartoon, Barney was the smarter of the two, since he was always warning Fred about the consequences of his actions. In Viva Rock Vegas, he’s retarded. I mean, how did Barney go from being retarded to a genius in the original 1994 film? Also, Fred was the one who ate a lot, not Barney.

    I really like Barney, but this movie’s portrayal of him really disgusts me.

    Also, the scene where Chip monologues his evil plan seems very similar to what the 1994 film’s villain Cliff Vandercave did.
