Alright, so, we're back with our first viewings, and we're going to do..


Are we watching? Viva Rock Vegas.

Yeah, I, probably deserved that.


We haven't seen this, but we've made fun of this a lot.

It's sort of another one of those infamous "Bad Sequels" But.

We have not seen it, so..


It will be good! Maybe, we're just jumping to conclusions! -No, I...

You know what? I, will..

Just jump.

The gun? -I will bet you $10, right now, that we are not...

I am not gonna.

Take you up on that bet! I! Don't even like the Flintstones! I, don't even like the cartoon! I like what it did for TV and everything, and opening up prime-time animation..

- C'mon, the cartoon's great! It's, all about abusing poor prehistoric animals by making them do household chores.

That is the only funny part, in the cartoon, I love that part.

-Ehh Here we go.

This is our first review, our first viewing review, or whatever.

You want to call it, of "Viva Rock Vegas".

Oh Christ! -Oh shit! Oh! -Gazoo? Oh, no!, Ah!, Ahh!!, Ahh!!, Ahhhh!!!!!, Alan Cumming in his most terrifying role since "Son of the Mask"! This.


The, stuff of nightmares..

Stephen Baldwin!, (Laughter), -Like, "Usual, Suspects", Stephen, Baldwin, or "Slumming it, Pure, Flix", Stephen, Baldwin?, "C'mon, we're late for God's Club!", Oh god, So we've had aliens, cavemen, and Las Vegas..

I'm sure all of these are going to connect.


Who gave this very unfunny MAD TV sketch a lot of money? -You know.

The CGI on that dinosaur is not very impressive.


The scary thing is, his Rubble's, pretty good I think it was the role he was born.

It play..

"You, passed!", He'll drop it on him, drop it on him..

Drop it on him..

There, you go, okay., -Wow, actual animatronics! Yeah, I'm, actually thoroughly impressed! As, Wilma? - Yuuup! That's, a weird choice! -"Incoming message from the big giant: head: You've been miscast!" She's immediately.

Like: "What am I doing in this role?" -I think that was the moment she realized: "And I picked the wrong agent." Look there.

He goes.

Isn't he dreamy? -Gast-rock -I'm, not gonna sleep, tonight., No..., Honestly, riding that dinosaur roller coaster looks like the most interesting thing in the movie.


Much rather do that for an hour and a-- How.

Are they filming it? -You? Don't have celluloid in..

I need to know!.

"This is gonna, be fun, huh?" It's, Sally!, -I know! It's, not Wilma! -And.

He just looks like a fat John Lithgow.

Maybe this is something I don't know...

That was creative, I'll give 'em that, at least..

-Yeah, a blind man gets lucky once.

It's a lost "3rd Rock from the Sun" episode, where she gets a starring role in a Flintstones movie.

Yeah, you know, I'll, give it this, there's yet to be a "guy from Dune with business plan.

That makes no sense to screw him.


I, don't know where it's going.


-Doug,! That actor has a name.

-It's Kyle Etraties, okay? Okay Just over that hill, they're, shooting "Breaking Bad".


Her mother is Cruella DeVil? -Yeah, it looks like it.

-Really? This only has a 3.5/10 stars on IMDB? -That seems pretty high! And, that was comedy, apparently., -The music told me, because it went "Wah.


I'm gonna go United Airlines on your ass! -Umm, that's a horse dick he put on his plate, Oh, yeah,! That's a fish.

-Yeah, glub, glub, glub, "Rock, Vegas, eh?", Ahhh!, -Ahh! Oh, ho ho! Ho, ho..

Oh, and this is definitely a ride at Universal.

Look at that You ride the car in, and then Stephen Baldwin is literally there, not animatronic.

That's just his work.

"Soon, Wilma will see him for the pathetic, primitive primate.

He really is.".


Now we have the bullshit "guy.

Trying to sabotage", okay, took a while!, -"LeWhore, I'm, afraid I've been thinking...".

-So are they.

Like, floats for the Rose Bowl Parade? Is that why they're decked out in flowers? Or..

"I just found out what "calamari" means..." Rose O'donnell? That'd be quite an impressive downgrade.

If that's her! -"Oh, so you don't want me as Betty, but you want me as the octopus." Well, I, don't know where this is going...

Oh! Now, where, where did that comes from?? I, am just shocked.

That's the route they went with: that.

Oh Christ..., -What? We're, doing this? -No, it's okay! I was just wiping my hot cream off her breasts! -Wait.

It came out totally wrong! Now.

If you'll excuse me, I'm going to the bathroom to use the three seashells..

Really? We're, ripping off "Titanic"? Of, all the scenes to rip off from Titanic, you're ripping off that one Like.

Arguably the worst scene in the movie? -Wouldn't.

It have been so much more amazing if this movie came out first, so we could say: "Titanic" ripped off "Viva, Rock, Vegas"?, "I'm, systematically poisoning the dinosaur's water supply.

Their entire species will be extinct!".

That was legitimately funny!.

-One of the writers, snapped, "Fuck it! I'm, going to have one funny: joke! Just, one!", I gotta be me! -Oh, look what we have here, all join on this thief,: oh hoh, hoh, hoh..., You, look at Alan, Cumming, and clearly put weird makeup on him: You look at Stephen Baldwin, and it's like.

What makeup did they put on him? No,? That's just how he looks.

"Hey, I, might be out of a job.


Brother's gotta have a little nest: egg, ya, dig?" -No, that's getting a little too "Dumbo" for me.

It's, amazing.

How much it just so looks like he's there., -Yeah, I, I'm, really something..

This is the only time where Stephen Baldwin really looks like he's looking at something, cuz.

This is probably what he sees.

Every day., -Honestly, I think I would probably rather watch the Geico Caveman Sitcom than this.

Don't say things you can't take back.

-I, don't know, I'm..

They're, shorter., Ha, hah, ha hah, cuz cuz.

It looks like it, ah, why'd.

You give him two..

Oh what heights, we'll hit..

On with the show.

This is it...

This is not the line of work for you, everyone's getting AIDS and shit! -And.

Somebody at Pure Flix saw this and said: "You know what.

We need him for our Christian movie." -You know, I'd be driven to Christ.

After this movie too, not gonna, lie! -Is.

He a dragonfruit? What is that?.

He looks like..

how babies are made, just all the sperm going into the egg.

-Actually, interesting thing.

They had a laugh track for this, exactly like the show -But.

They couldn't even get people to fake, laugh at this., -Gazoo's, like:, "And, now, I, mercifully release you from your torment!" Shut up, shut, up, shut, up!, -There's, six minutes of credits, left, that that many people wanted their name attached to this film.

Well, okay, ultimate question.

Is it worse than the first one? I feel like this one had more color to it than the first one.


First one..

this one had more color to it.


This is scary, I feel like this one felt shorter.



It did have that one funny dinosaur, line, and I, can't think of one laugh in the first "Flintstones" movie.

-Gazoo will haunt my nightmares.

-That's for damn sure.


That was so terrifying! -Oh, my god..

This movie's stupid, it's just stupid.

-God! Dumb, movie! -Oh! I've got nothing to say.


Do you say to this? Yeah, just dumb.

-Rotton Tomatoes:, 25% -For, the record! I think Donald Trump right now is sitting at 36%.

-Donald Trump is doing better than this movie Than Flintstones -by 11%.


What can we say? But "Ehh, it's a living." -We'll have a gay old time! We're done now.

We're done!.
