Did You Know?
Harvey Korman, who plays Colonel Slaghoople, was the original voice of The Great Gazoo in
The Flintstones TV series.
After Wilma takes a short walk and is stopped by Chip, the elevator door closes, then reopens when a lady pushes a button, a few seconds later, someone else pushes the button and it opens, not taking any time to move from the floor it would have gone to, and there's no one inside.
You're awfully pretty when you smile, Miss Betty O'Shale.
It's not that bad!
Jeez, it ain't THAT bad! 3.8? Maybe the original, MAYBE, but this is a
substantial improvement over that, and the original has like a 4+ rating. I
don't really give this a 10, I give it more like a 7.5, but I gave it a 10
because I found the ratings to be well, WAY OFF. This one had decent
performances, really excellent art direction, and some really cool FX. I
especially liked the Bronto-bridge and the Great Gazzoo. Unlike the first
Flintstones, this prequel is smart, fun, and the actors truly become the
characters they play. The story? LAME. The first 60% or so of the film DOES
CLICK. But the rest, when they arrive in Rock Vegas, is pure dreck appealing
to the lowest common denominator. But the film is so fun to look at, you
really don't care. There are a lot of films to love to hate but this one
really is NOT it. It's an adult Flintstones, if you can imagine that, and
it's a small but cute treasure to behold.
