Did you like the cast of The Flintsones movie? Bad news. None of them are back.
Mark Addy replaces John Goodman as Fred. Stephen Baldwin is no Rick Moranis as Barney. Kristen Johnston takes over for Elizabeth Perkins as Wilma Slaghoople. Jane Krakowski is here instead of Rosie O’Donnell as Betty.
The 2000’s were a time of prequels. So if you ever wanted to know how the Flintstones got together — and you desired to see the character that ruined the original show, The Great Gazoo (Alan Cumming, who also plays Mick Jagged, the Mick Jagger character ) — it’s all here for you.
This was directed by Brian Levant, who was also behind the first film, as well as Problem Child 2, Beethoven, Jingle All the Way, the direct to video sequel to A Christmas Story and supposedly the reboot of Police Academy.
Look, I’ll watch any movie with Joan Collins in it. That was pretty much what kept me going in this film. Harvey Korman shows up, which is ironic, as he was the voice of Gazoo in the original cartoon. And hey, Taylor Negron roles are always appreciated.
At least they kept Mel Blanc’s voice for Dino.
