"The Honeymooners (DVD)
Cedric the entertainer resurrects the NY City bus driver character made famous by Jackie Gleason with his perpetual "get rich quick" schemes.
All-in-all an entertaining movie.
Recommended for Cedric the Entertainer fans and fans of Jackie Gleason.
Boring, flat, One of the worst remakes ever made

"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

Not A Very Good Remake

"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."
