In a parallel modern-day Stone Age world, a working-class family, the Flintstones, are set up for an executive job. But they learn that money can’t buy happiness.
Big-hearted, dim-witted factory worker Fred Flintstone (John Goodman) lends money to his friend Barney Rubble so that he can adopt a baby. As thanks, Barney swaps his IQ test for Fred’s during an executive search program. After getting promoted, however, Fred becomes embroiled in the dastardly scheming of his boss Cliff Vandercave, who enlists his secretary, Sharon Stone (Halle Berry), to seduce Fred, angering Fred’s wife, Wilma.
