In 1994, Universal Pictures, Hanna-Barbera Productions, and Amblin Entertainment teamed up for a live-action motion picture recreating all the quirks of stone-age living that made the original series so fun.
Big-hearted, dim-witted factory worker Fred Flintstone (John Goodman) lends money to his friend Barney Rubble (Rick Moranis) so that he can adopt a baby. As thanks, Barney swaps his IQ test for Fred's during an executive search program. After getting promoted, however, Fred becomes embroiled in the dastardly scheming of his boss Cliff Vandercave (Kyle MacLachlan), who enlists his secretary, Sharon Stone (Halle Berry), to seduce Fred, angering Fred's wife, Wilma (Elizabeth Perkins).
For a movie done in the Nineties, the special effects are phenominal, even if the plot is a little thin. All of the cute things from the original series -- the use of animals as appliances, the gravel pit, the Flintstones' car, and even the well-known opening and closing drive-in sequences -- are all used to make this film such a visual delight.
