The 90s were a great time for Universal Studios. This was the time when they made some of their best movies, and Amblin was a name everyone knew would produce a hit movie. When Amblin took on Hanna-Barbera’s, The Flintstones, as a live action movie, somehow they knew they would produce a product that was pure family fun, and it remains so to this day. The formula for such a fun movie involves John Goodman as Fred Flintstone, and Rick Moranis as Barney Rubble. These hardworking cavemen would not be anywhere with there cute cavewoman wives, Wilma (Elizabeth Perkins) and Betty (Rosie O’Donnell). Pebbles (Elaine Silver, Melanie Silver) and strong boy Bamm-Bamm (Hlynur Sigurðsson) and Dino add to the cuteness, we even get to meet nerdy boss, Mr. Slate (Dann Florek), Add the BC-52s (fun alternative party band, The B-52s) to your soundtrack, and you got a movie that is about as fun as it gets.

This movie about a young dreamer from a small town is fun and inspiring, as well as cute and funny. It’s the perfect formula for a family film, even if all the characters are Robots.
The movie opens in Rivet Town, where Herb Copperbottom (Stanley Tucci) is dancing through the streets on his way home from work because he is expecting a huge delivery. When Mrs. Copperbottom (Dianne Weist) tells him he missed the delivery, but that making the baby is the best part, they start building something that is going to change their lives and many other lives in ways they never knew possible. What they build is Rodney Copperbottom, a young idealist with a knack for inventing. His idol is Big Weld (Mel Brooks), an entrepreneur who won’t turn down anyone who submits an invention to him, because he believes in progress, and that there are too many needs going unfulfilled in his city. His motto is “See a need, fill a need.” Rodney keeps this thought with him as he grows up. When graduation arrives, Rodney wants to leave Rivet Town. Rodney (Ewan MacGregor) knows that he can invent great things to help his family, and since his idol, Big Weld, has never turned anyone down, he is going to Robot City to show Big Weld one of his inventions, and make his mark in the industry.
