Despite slightly more positive reception than the first film (though still generally negative), this film had the misfortune of coming out during a time when Creator/HannaBarbera cartoons had become SoLastSeason, and Universal Pictures was already exhausting their advertising expenditures toward two of their other films released that same period, ''Film/{{U571}}'' and ''Film/{{Gladiator}}''. As a result of being put on their self-made blockbuster death row, ''Viva Rock Vegas'' tanked at the box office, grossing extremely less than its predecessor grossed, and Universal relinquished the Hanna-Barbera film license[[note]]though they would keep it until production wrapped up for ''Film/JosieAndThePussycats'', which later bombed as well[[/note]], resulting in [[FranchiseKiller no further]] ''Flintstones'' movies being made since then, though an animated film currently ''is'' in development by [[Creator/WarnerBros Warner Animation Group]].

** In addition, Harvey Korman (the voice of the Great Gazoo from the cartoon) plays Colonel Slaghoople; the voice of Mr. Slate is the minister at [[spoiler: the wedding]]; and Rosie O'Donnell, who voiced Betty in the first movie, voices an octopus masseuse for a few lines.

* ActorAllusion: Or maybe a "Singer Allusion". Ann-Margret sings the theme song, a play on "Viva Las Vegas". Not only did she co-star in [[Main/VivaLasVegas that film]] with ElvisPresley, she also voiced "Ann-Margrock" in the original WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Chip realizes that Barney will keep Fred from gambling and thus incurring debts, so he deliberately mentions an all-you-can-eat buffet, knowing that Barney can't resist.

Added DiffLines:

* AllPowerfulBystander: Gazoo. He can do pretty much anything he wants by snapping his fingers, but his overseers forbid him from using his powers while on Earth except for his research purposes. One of the sweeter moments in the movie is he when [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight decides to help Fred and Barney escape jail anyway]].


Added DiffLines:

* RealityWarper: Gazoo. When he finally decides to break the rules and help Fred and Barney, all he needs to do is say "Achoo!" to activate telekinetic abilities and take out a troublesome guard.

to:

* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: When Fred starts winning big at the casino (actually the work of Chip behind the scenes), he briefly acts like a posh jerk, thinking that's what Wilma wants. He's very wrong.



* BigEater: Barney.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Gazoo is able to do this; at the beginning of the film, he points out the giant letters of the Universal logo orbiting the Earth, and at the end, he snaps his fingers to SmashToBlack.



** In addition, Harvey Korman (the voice of the Great Gazoo from the cartoon) plays Colonel Slaghoople; the voice of Mr. Slate is the minister at [[spoiler: the wedding]]; and Rosie O'Donnell, who voiced Betty in the first movie, voices an octopus masseuse for a few lines.
* CompanionCube: Wilma's pearl necklace. The film reveals that they were a gift from her father, who gave them to her while promising that no matter what she chose to do with her life, he would love and support her.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Chip realizes that Barney will keep Fred from gambling and thus incurring debts, so he deliberately mentions an all-you-can-eat buffet, knowing that Barney can't resist.



* DaddysGirl: Wilma--the only way her mother is able to get her to return to the mansion is by pointing out how upset Colonel Slaghoople would be if his daughter didn't show up to his birthday party.
* DisguisedInDrag: How Fred and Barney get around hotel security after Gazoo helps them escape from jail--they pass themselves off as showgirls.



* EngineeredPublicConfession: Chip deliberately creates one of these by planting Wilma's beloved pearl necklace in Fred's pocket, then announcing that a robbery has been committed and encouraging the thief to step forward. Unfortunately, [[RuleOfThree three other patrons]] think he's talking about them and make confessions of their own.
-->'''Hysterical Woman''': I STOLE ALL THE TOWELS FROM MY ROOM!
-->'''Chip''': ...Yes, well, technically that is illegal, but...



* GilliganCut: Two:
-->''(After Gazoo is banished to Earth)''
-->'''Alien Leader''': Imagine the ''moron'' that's going to get stuck with Gazoo!
-->''(Cut to a shot of Fred driving his car)''
** And later:
--->'''Wilma''': I don't think there's a greedy bone in Fred's body.
--->''(Cut to Fred tossing money in the air at a gambling table)''
--->'''Fred''': YABBA-DABBA-DOUGH!



* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Wilma delivers an epic one to her mother after the latter screams at Fred for ruining her party. '
-->'''Wilma''': ''How can you treat people this way?''



* SlobsVersusSnobs: The scene between the wealthy elite at Colonel Slaghoople's birthday party and Fred, Barney, and Betty, the "commoners."



* WidelySpacedJailBars: At one point, Fred and Barney are in a jail. While the bars are close enough together to give Fred trouble, Barney can walk through the gaps without even shrugging. He doesn't until an item falls just out of reach and he has to step through to get them. No, it wasn't the keys; Fred actually has to tell him to go back out and get the keys and let Fred out of the cell.
