A disconnected series of skits and one-liners likely to satisfy children while only infuriating nostalgic adults in search of the magic of the Fifties sitcom.

"The Honeymooners" is a good-natured movie that's not so much a remake as a nod to the old television series.

More a 2005 appreciation of the series than anything else, and one that is wisely tailored to its cast members, who manage to make their characters charming and likable.

Feels like watching an hour and a half block of a sitcom - one half hour is really funny, another good for a few laughs and the other the one you could catch in reruns.

I found the crazy schemes hatched by this new Kramden/Norton duo very funny indeed.

Cedric the Entertainer comes close to sharing Gleason's gift for, well, entertaining. He's the biggest reason this version of The Honeymooners is such an amusing surprise.

There have been funnier comedies. But there also have been far worse reasons to make a movie. Or remake a sitcom.

Just funny enough to mollify purists and amuse the uninitiated.

The real question is whether we like these people. To my surprise, the answer is yes.

A surprise and a delight, a movie that escapes the fate of weary TV retreads and creates characters that remember the originals, yes, but also stand on their own.

Superfluous though it may be, The Honeymooners is not so bad.

The script is no better than it has to be, and the movie doesn't stretch anyone's talents, but it's as efficiently entertaining as a classic record by the Spinners.

This is a honeymoon trip worth taking.

There are two ways to look at the big-screen adaptation of The Honeymooners - as an adaptation of the show, and as a film in it's own right. Either way it's a film that occasionally works, but never manages more than that.

The script (credited to four screenwriters) uses a plethora of already-dated urban inside humor that reeks of pandering.

A stroll down sitcom memory lane in name only, The Honeymooners seems as if any resemblance to the original TV classic could only be accidental.

Fans of the original series probably won't care for it, and the rest of us could probably get the same kind of entertainment in our living rooms, for free.
