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.

June 27, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.

Even if one were willing to overlook the fact that The Honeymooners is virtually nothing like the show that supposedly inspired it, the film would still come off as an unnaturally prolonged, second-rate UPN sitcom.

It could be part-autobiographical for director John Schultz who blunders through a tediously half-baked plot and fails to make it pay off.

Silly remake, but not the worst of the year

Alas, there's not a hint of creativity or wit here.

Bland, disappointing - quickly forgettable and regrettable

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

If we can recast Jackie Gleason's signature role of Ralph Kramden with Cedric the, ahem, "Entertainer," why not Jim Carrey as Cliff Huxtable in "The Cosby Show Movie"?
June 21, 2005
Cedric the Entertainer inhabits Kramden's role comfortably, but there's no rage or bite in his acting.

I have some real affection for The Honeymooners because I liked the core cast so much. I just wish that everything else was on the same level.

The concept alone is misguided, awkward, and distracting. The plot is no improvement.

June 18, 2005
The comedy wannabe has the lamest, most predictable banter of any recent movie.
Full Review | Original Score: D
June 18, 2005
Four screenwriters, including veteran TV producer Danny Jacobson, have cobbled together a script so rickety that it could itself pass as one of Ralph Kramden's harebrained get-rich schemes.

Rather than putting a modern stamp on a reliable product, The Honeymooners renders one of the most distinctive formulas in television history entirely anonymous.

Cedric The Entertainer is a smart, charismatic guy, but those qualities are MIA in The Honeymooners. The movie doesn't deserve him.
June 17, 2005
I found the movie to be sweet and heartwarming.
