Our Score
It's yabba-dabba-two time as Fred and Barney first meet Wilma and Betty in a belated prequel to 1994's live-action original. The first half is cuter and more child-friendly, with the trademark retro gizmos including a nifty Jurassic theme park where the roller coaster comprises interlocked apatosaurus necks. By contrast, the more plot-driven second half could tax pre-adolescent patience as Fred seeks to see off competition for well-off Wilma's hand by striking it rich in Vegas. The casting is variable: The Full Monty's Mark Addy looks the part as Fred, but underplays it; as Barney, Stephen Baldwin is too gormless and two feet too tall. The girls, though, are great, with Ally McBeal's Jane Krakowski a nicely traditional Betty and Third Rock from the Sun's Kristen Johnston an unexpectedly voluptuous Wilma.

Concluded.
