Review

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.

Summary

Young courting couples Fred and Wilma, and Barney and Betty are invited to stay at a luxury casino in the Stone Age gambling capital. Owner Chip Rockefeller is bent on stopping Fred proposing to wealthy Wilma, because he wants to marry her himself for the money and settle his debts. Family comedy prequel, with Mark Addy, Stephen Baldwin, Joan Collins, Alan Cumming, Kristen Johnston and Jane Krakowski. Including FYI Daily.
