Five possible. The three are for the little kids. They may even give it four. Depends on how many times they make you watch it on tape. 300 or 400. And if you don't like little kids, get a job as attorney general.
Tagline: Get ready to rock!
     Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Is there no one that can write a tagline?
     Are you a little kid? If so, there is a good chance that you will love this trifle from Hanna-Barbera.

     There is no point in analyzing this beyond to say that the principles do a good job, they are very cartoony, and the 3-d and puppet animation is pretty good. Stephen Baldwin even rose above his Blue M&M spot to be credible as Barney. Never would have believed it. Way to go, Stephen!

     I loved the last two minutes of the film though, when they actually get into the Flintstones music, and a yowling rendition of Viva Rock Vegas. It really comes alive, and makes me wonder how great the whole film could have been as a musical, suffused with that incredible energy.

Amusing, isn't it?
