Top Customer Reviews
Ced and Epps take the roles of ralph and Ed from "the honeymooners" in a try to urbanize them as if they were 2 black males who are married and live in manhattan instead of being white like the classic "honeymooners" tv show.
The Negatives-This movie seems so rushed and seems no effort was but into the script and it shows in the humour quality as this movie delivers a couple of funny lines but mostly drags for most of the movie.
-It seems that Ced and Epps did this movie for the check since they seem like they aren't even having a good time doing this movie and show no type of on-screen chemistry.
The Positives-A couple of funny lines, and slight chuckles here and there do not outweigh the negatives in this movie.
Conclusion-A very horrid attempt of a Remake,No chemistry between characters, unfunny script, this movie is just another failure for Hollywood trying to remake classic shows(for example Bewitched which was slighty better than this)
1.5 stars rounded up to 2 out of 5 stars
The Opinionated One has Spoken
None of the actors seemed to have his heart in what he was doing. Cedric had his moments, but they were few and far between, and I couldn't help but notice that even he seemed rather uncomfortably embarrassed delivering his final and fully predictable line at the very end. There was no real chemistry to be found among the actors, either. Gabrielle Union is a lovely young actress, but she just doesn't have the feisty nature of a true Alice Kramden; she's just too nice for the role. Mike Epps didn't exactly scream Ed Norton to my brain, either.
Plot-wise, there's not much to talk about.Read more ›
The film begins to set up the story in New York in the fall of 1999, as Ralph Kramden (Cedric the Entertainer) drives a bus while displaying his dreaming persona. It also shows how he met his future wife Alice (Gabrielle Union) and his deficient skills in business through a Y2K survival kit. Six years later, Ralph is still a bad businessman and a bus driver who keeps dreaming of the big deal. However, his relationship with Alice is no longer as sweet, as it was when he met her for the first time. Now Ralph has to deal with the responsibilities of being married while he also secretively tries to juggle shady business deals in order to make quick money. However, whenever the truth catches up with him, and it usually does, Alice throws her wrath over him.
Honeymooners' storyline focuses on both Ralph and Alice, but also on their neighbors and friends Ed (Mike Epps) and Trixie (Regina Hall). Alice and Trixie have decided to buy a duplex before the entrepreneur William Davis (Eric Stoltz) buys the building, but in order to do that they have to have $20,000 within two weeks. This presents a problem to Ralph, as he has squandered some of their money on a supposedly get-rich-quick deal.Read more ›
