Editorial Reviews

Working class New York bus driver Ralph Kramden (Cedric the Entertainer) is a man with big dreams that never work out. His friend, sewer specialist Ed Norton (Mike Epps) is always around to help him get in (and out of) trouble. Standing by their husbands are devoted wives Alice (Gabrielle Union) and Trixie (Regina Hall) who make ends meet by waitressing at a neighborhood diner. Throw in a stray dog named Iggy who runs like the wind (when he's motivated) and you have a comical underdog story for the whole family.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, flat, One of the worst remakes ever made July 30, 2005
I usually love movies that either Cedric the entertainer or Mike Epps are in but this movie is just horrible.

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

2.0 out of 5 stars Not A Very Good Remake June 28, 2005
I was very skeptical about this movie to begin with, not because of the cast. The casting was perhaps the only good thing. It seems like these highly talented actors were misplaced in the wrong movie. And they didn't seem to be having fun in it either. The Honeymoners is an ancient show to begin with. A remake given it's proper due of this series is pretty difficult material to tackle. To make it funny for today's audiences seems next to impossible regardless of what ethnic group or race the actors are. It's just not as funny as it once was. It would be the same as some director doing a Three Stooges remake. Some things just shouldn't be done over or dug up again. In regards to this film. It would've helped if it was funny. The audiences of today have high expectations often to a fault. I tried to like this movie though and Cedric the Entertainer is very talented and funny when he is given decent material to work with. This unfortunately wasn't it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh, how sweet it isn't May 25, 2006
Format:DVD
Here we have one of the most ill-conceived remakes in history, a truly forgettable film exploiting a well-known, much-loved commodity for money (and very little of it, as things turned out). Exploiting may not be the right word for me to use here, however; it's not as if this movie sought out to make fun of the original series, and the transformation of the Kramdens and Nortons into middle-class African-Americans carries no kind of overt or underlying statement whatsoever. The only problem with this odd movie is its failure to be very funny. I've always said that Cedric the Entertainer is always funny. Well, I can't say that anymore. I did get a few laughs over the course of the film, but watching this modern version of The Honeymooners is sort of like watching a fish out of water: initially, it's sort of funny to watch it flop around all over the place; before very long, though, it starts to get boring, all that activity begins to slow down more and more as it makes its way to a painful death, and you're left just standing there, hoping to sneak away before anyone notices you were ever there to begin with. Someone really should have thrown this fish out of water back.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Flawed Comedy That Did Not Need Revitalization... November 12, 2005
Format:DVD
"It's alive!" The infamous words by Dr. Frankenstein could not even bring back a sitcom that has been dead for over a half a century. However, director John Schultz gives his best effort to remake the sitcom from 1955 with a new adaptation into the theaters, as he casts Cedric the Entertainer and Mike Epps as his sidekick. Together with these two comedians, Schultz tries to poke fun of the economical situation of a family, and their attempt to gain the American Dream in a swift and easy manner. However, nothing is easy or swift, as it sets up a myriad of slapstick situations and silly humor.

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.
