The comedy wannabe has the lamest, most predictable banter of any recent movie.

The real problem is that the Kramdens' precarious financial situation, which gave the original its poignant frisson, is sidestepped.

John Leguizamo steals the show as its sleazy trainer -- not that there's much to steal from John Schultz's joylessly schematic paycheck.

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.

Cannibalizing old programs has become a reflex action in Tinseltown, and as a result, audience expectations are low. It must be hard to resist the temptation to live down to them.

Why? Why would someone do this? How did we get here, watching mediocre remakes of classic 1950s sitcoms? What is the meaning of it all? Does cinema have a purpose beyond supporting the theater-concessions industry?

If not for a few interludes of lively riffing by John Leguizamo, playing a dog trainer and all-around hustler named Dodge, there would be nothing funny about any of this.

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

The best thing that can be said about the new Honeymooners is that it respects its elders: It plays like an episode of the show. The worst thing is that it plays like an episode of the show.

Cedric and Epps have none of the team chemistry Gleason shared with Art Carney, and Epps' Norton displays none of Carney's eccentricities.

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.

Though the patterns are there, the laughs aren't, mostly because the writing is so lazy and formulaic.

This laughless attempt to modernize the Kramdens and Nortons is somewhat akin to sacrilege, as it waters down the characters and strips them of their unforgettable quirks and tics.

A get-rich-quick picture about a guy with get-rich-quick dreams. The moon may shine high over Ralph Kramden's New York City, but sights are set depressingly low in the studio schemes of Hollywood.

A couple of bursts of inspired physical comedy notwithstanding, the normally unflappable Cedric (who also executive-produced) goes through the film plastered with a how'd-I-get-myself-into-this look on his face -- as does the audience.
