In Hell, it features Rob Schneider as the Great Gazoo.

At least do the Jetsons.
Hell Ferrell would make a pretty good George Jetson.

Wouldn't that be a re-remake?

Actually, a re-re-remake (if we count the TV show, the John Goodman move, and the Mark Addy Sequel).

Hopefully this will be the torpedo that his career so richly deserves.

Um ... did anyone actually, you know, read the article? Ferrell is the EP. It doesn't say he is starring in the movie.

Besides, it's animated.

Damn, ya'll some hating bastards ...

I will always have a slight fondness for the 1994 Flintstones.  Why?  Because a friend dragged me to see it, and after ~30 mins we ended up theater-hopping into a showing of The Crow.

If it doesn't contain the frank eroticism of Rosie O'Donnell then I, for one, am not interested.

Anchorman is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.

I rank it up there with Airplane.
That said, I'm so bored with his shtick.
At least Adam Sandler tries to shake things up by starring with someone new like Drew Barrymore.

oh....

Any chance we can get Halle Berry to get a role in a nice skimpy outfit like she was in the second movie?

The 1994 Flintstones movie isn't bad, they got the casting right and the set pieces, scenery, and special effects are great, it's just that the story sucked and the script needed several more rewrites.

I really don't understand the general public sometimes. "Hey, I recognize that name, one movie ticket please!"

I agree I thought it was really damn entertaining!

The only problem was Rosie O'Donnell.  Seriously.  Casting someone totally wrong for the part merely because she can do the Betty Rubble giggle?  C'mon!!

Also, the kid who played Bam Bam was awful.  From what I recall he wasn't an 'actor' and I don't think he spoke English.  Just atrocious.
 
2014-05-07 11:13:03 PM
You ratfarkers don't get it

They're a "Modern" "Stone Age" family.

They're a nuclear family of the 60's in the stone age.

in the later series the grown up kids taught you how to dance

What are you guys not getting here? How is this not gold?

Well, can't do the classic Rosie. That was a stereotypical black housekeeper in a metal frame.

Rosie the smarthouse AI in control of multipurpose nanite goo could be interesting.
 
2014-05-07 11:51:25 PM
NOPE.

I actually still kind of like Goodman's Flintstones. It's pretty weird, but it's a kind of weird you just won't see nowadays. It's charming.

I highly recommend  the porn version of The Flintstones. You'll have a fap- a- fappa-do time.

The Flintstones age actually came after the Jetson's.
They were a "modern" stone age family.
After the sprocket/cog corporate wars. The earth was left in ruins. No more flying cars, no more high rise apartments.
All Digital Media was lost..music, books, education texts. What remained was hard copy print films, books and LPs. Forgotten in the vaults of ground based libraries.
Using that media which did not require specialized players the ground dwellers rebuilt a society based on the 50's and 60's decades of America. LP/Film Movies/and hard copy books were the template to imitate cultures and styles.
Appliances were simulated using escaped bio engineered animals---and trained to preform specific tasks.

---

Do it this way....you might have something. Opening scene of Barney and Fred scavenging stuff--tossing out the Ipods; going for a LP's; hard copy books, films..long shot of felled jetson high rises. Zoos with bioengineering animals.

Make the Flintstones a 'modern stone age' after jetson and corporate collapse.

wildcardjack: Well, can't do the classic Rosie. That was a stereotypical black housekeeper in a metal frame.



Rosie the robot maid was a thinly-disguised riff on Hazel -- the sitcom based on the newspaper comic strip of the same title.

The Jetsons themselves, OTOH, are pretty much direct lifts from Blondie (also based on the newspaper comic strip) ...

George = Dagwood
Jane = Blondie
Judy = Cookie
Elroy = Alexander
Astro = Daisy
Mr. Spacely = Mr. Dithers

Penny Singleton -- who played Blondie in the linked short -- was also the voice of Jane Jetson.
 
2014-05-08 01:13:50 AM
I remember at a prop auction that they couldn't even give the Flintstones car away. That tells you how bad this idea was.
 
2014-05-08 01:16:48 AM
Ferrell as Jetson = potential gold. Danny DeVito For Mr. Spacely.     Another Flintstones reboot = unnecessary.

Can someone just make this clown go away?
 
2014-05-08 02:24:40 AM
Even if it's animated, Will Ferrell will probably do Fred's voice because he has the name recognition. Plus ego. You wouldn't want an actual professional voice actor like Maurice LaMarche doing Fred's voice. Oh no. Nobody knows who that guy is.

My guess, it'll be Cedric the Entertainer.

Yea he was a great as Will Marshall in Land of the Lost.

baufan2005: Because Bam Bam had a lot of dialogue in the cartoon?


No, but the kid looked like he was some executive's nephew who got the job or something and smiled at the camera in every scene.

Like he couldn't stop giggling during filming.  Watch it again, you'll see what I mean.

Funny to say, but watching a live action movie about caveman people riding dinosaurs to work, and THAT kid took me out of the movie!

Just stop, God damn it! Give us something new. Stop raping the corpses of dead franchises no one gives a shiat about anymore.

i wouldn't spend a dime to see another flintstone remake, but if i downloaded and it came on in front of my eyes i would give it a look, just to criticize it.

more importantly the series had imo THEE BEST opening theme evar!!

case in point: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mh0nmrOSFHw

this?   youtube trailer... mostly sfw... but it does say xxx parody in the title...

the trailer doesn't really make me want to watch the whole movie... but there's no accounting for some people's taste.

I'd actually like to see Farrell as the Great Gazoo in a Jetsons live-action film.
 
2014-05-08 08:29:09 AM
I just want to add... having searched for the flintstones porn parody... there are a LOT of porn parodies out there... I had no idea...

trailer for Duck Dynasty xxx parody...  they invent a beaver call...

Will Farrell isn't funny.  Will Farrell has never been funny. Will Farrell will never be funny. He needs to die in a hot air balloon accident that lands on Justin Beiber in Adam Sandlers backyard.

That is what happens when you use a documentary of human history before the Great Flood and turn it into a movie.
