Movie Info

Ralph Kramden (Cedric the Entertainer) drives a bus in New York City but dreams of something more. Unfortunately, none of Ralph's business ideas -- which often incorporate his best friend, Ed (Mike Epps) -- have panned out. Knowing their husbands will never get them out of the city, Ralph's wife, Alice (Gabrielle Union), and Ed's wife, Trixie (Regina Hall), pool their savings to purchase a house in the suburbs. But once the men find out about the secret stash, they might just blow it all.

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

    August 30, 2005 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The comedy wannabe has the lamest, most predictable banter of any recent movie.

    June 18, 2005 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • Rather than putting a modern stamp on a reliable product, The Honeymooners renders one of the most distinctive formulas in television history entirely anonymous.

    June 18, 2005 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    June 18, 2005 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • The real problem is that the Kramdens' precarious financial situation, which gave the original its poignant frisson, is sidestepped.

    June 14, 2005 | Full Review…
  • I like the cast. They're very talented, they're really funny, they have a dreadful script to work with.

Audience Reviews for The Honeymooners

  • Oct 28, 2011
    A Man With A Plan To Make It Rich Working class New York bus driver Ralph Kramden is always coming up with get-rich-quick schemes for him and his best friend, Ed Norton, who's always around to help him get in (and out of) trouble. Ralph Kramden and sanitation engineer Ed Norton are best friends whose schemes are the only things bigger than their dreams. The most recent get-rich-quick plan finds the boys out to make a fast buck by training and racing a stray greyhound. When Alice's dream of buying a home looks like it could become a reality, the Kramdens team up with their best friends who live upstairs, Ed and Trixie, to amass the $20,000 for a down payment before a shady land developer beats them to it. The Honeymooners gives a few nods to the original series, like Ed's trademark hat, and a sweet twist on Ralph's signature line: instead of threatening to knock Alice to the moon, he promises to take her there someday.

    A Complete and Original "Tv-Show turned Movie, and Maybe that's why it was only as half as good as a normal half and hour Sit-com?

    Why bother? Jackie Gleason did it best. Cedric the Entertainer was a QUIET version of Jackie Gleason in the sitcom...good try though...

    This movie shouldn't even have been made, it's kind of arrogant by everyone involved.
