The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas | 2000 | PG | - 2.2.1

This live-action comedy takes place in the Flintstone gang's single days: The Great Gazoo is sent to Earth to study human mating habits and observes Fred and Wilma and Barney and Betty falling in love despite several misunderstandings and meddlers. With Mark Addy, Stephen Baldwin, Jane Krakowski, Kristen Johnston, Joan Collins, Alan Cumming, Harvey Korman and Thomas Gibson. [1:28]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Very little, very mild sexual innuendo and a couple of references to "mating" (but using the word "mating" is as graphic as the discussion gets; in one scene a man falls onto another's back on a bed and they're asked about their "mating habits"). Many kisses and near kisses. A man appears to be fondling a woman's chest from one camera angle, but he's actually trying to wipe pie off her chest. A man standing behind a woman puts his hand around her waist while helping her bowl. A man playfully swats a woman's clothed buttocks. Men stare at some waitresses in short skirts. We see some shirtless men, a couple of women in bathing suits, some women in cleavage-revealing tops, and lots of showgirls in costumes similar to bathing suits.

VIOLENCE/GORE 2 - Mostly played for laughs. Two men get into a slapping fight, then one tackles the other, one punches the other and one breaks a guitar over the other's head. We see two men in a boxing ring hitting each other with clubs; one is knocked out of the ring and lands on a bystander. We see a man's head being squeezed in a vise. A rock is dropped on a man's head and he's driven into the ground (he's not harmed), a woman hits a man in the head with a ball and knocks him into a dunking tank, two men pull another out of a car and a woman hits him on the head, a man accidentally punches another, a woman slaps a man in the background of a scene, a man throws an alien by its antennas, a shelf and a bowling ball land on a man's head, a man falls out of his hammock and onto another's back, a woman falls a couple of times while roller-skating, two men fall into a pit, a man falls from a Ferris wheel, an alien flies into a road sign, a man kicks an alien off a Ferris wheel, a man jumps into a pool and knocks another person out of the pool, an animal runs across a table and knocks some people to the ground, and a man stubs his toe and yells in pain. A little verbal threatening; also, a man breaks a doll's leg off, implying he'll do the same to the person he's looking at. A spaceship nearly hits two men and lands on the ground in a trail of fire; also, a bowling ball nearly hits a few people. A large dinosaur passes gas loudly, knocking down several people.

LANGUAGE 1 - Possibly one muffled mild obscenity and many instances of name-calling.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
