This is one of the worst movies that I have ever seen. I am a fan of the classic show from the 50's, The Honeymooners. This movie should NEVER have taken the same name of the show. It might deter people from watching the amazing Classic 39 episodes. Please buy these and enjoy for many years to come. The REAL Honeymooners is good clean fun. Jackie Gleason is surely rolling over in his grave right now. As far as this movie, I did buy a copy just to burn it at Jackie's grave. I did burn it and ran it over with my 4x4 a few times for good measure. So if you plan on buying it so you can destroy it safely, please do. If not, don't waist your time or money. POW! Right in the kisser!
And Away We Go!
New York City bus driver Ralph Kramden and his feisty wife Alice, struggle to make ends meet. Despite Ralph's many get-rich-quick schemes/motivational speaker tape series, they've managed to save some money and, along with their best friends Ed and Trixie Norton, they seem to have almost enough money for a down payment on a Brooklyn duplex. However, when Ralph decides to try to impress Alice by making up what he's lost and augmenting their savings with another of his crazy schemes, he winds up losing all their money and his marriage to boot and it takes all his determination and love for Alice to get things on track again. The movie itself is quite entertaining and Cedric, Mike Epps, and John Leguizamo gave very funny and likable performances. This movie accomplishes everything a good comedy should- genuine performances, good casting, fun and comical storyline, and a slew of good jokes. This is not a bad movie, its just a bad remake for a show that really didn't need to be remade. Overall,its a good time and I don't regret seeing it. Just don't expect The Honeymooners, because it's not.
Cedric the entertainer should have made this a little funnier, along with Mike Epps. They've both played funnier roles than these. Still a pretty good movie though. Can't really do too much with a re-make.
Boring! Boring! Boring! This movie is a real dud! The original "Honeymooners" was funny. Gleason and Carney were funny people with the facial expressions and swagger to pull off the gags. They had the natural comedic ability to play off of each other's strengths. I'm sorry, but I found this film to be "slapstick stupid!" I like Cedrick the Entertainer in other roles he has played, but in this one, he comes across as silly, and corny. I think that part of what made the original show series funny was that they were white, uneducated, sort-of trailer trash people, who lived their situation because of the contributing factors. Making them black just doesn't work to capture that old magic. This one needs to be renamed "The NONEYmooners". Don't waste your time or money.
I BUY SEVERAL DVD’S AND CD’S ON EBAY EVERY WEEK, I ALSO SELL SEVERAL, ONCE I HAVE WATCHED A MOVIE, I EITHER KEEP IT FOR MY PERSONAL COLLECTION OR I RESELL IT. TO ME THIS IS A WAY OF SEEING MOVIES I WANT TO SEE AND GETTING SOME OF MY MONEY BACK TO BUY MORE. I CONSIDER MYSELF TO BE VERY OPENMINDED AND I DON’T GET OFFENDED EASILY. THEREFORE IN MY REVIEWS NUDITY, PROFANTY, AND VIOLENCE DOES NOT MAKE ME LIKE A MOVIE OR SONG ANY LESS.
THIS MOVIE WAS AWFUL, THERE WAS NO PLOT, IT WAS NOT FUNNY AT ALL TO ME. I WATCHED IT FOR ABOUT 10 MINS AND TOOK IT OUT
very good movie but it helps if you have seen the original honeymooners. Very funny! sedwick the entertainer is so funny in this movie ,one of his better movies
Why did we buy this movie? The previews are what really grabbed our attention, as well as the acting cast. It appeared to be very funny, and turned out as a good movie!
Offers a great display of some of the most popular traditional lifestyles, with your hopes and dreams of the simple things you desire in life and how life has its twists.
Great acting cast, and wasnt as funny as we we're hoping, but it was pretty funny and entertaining. It held our interest from beginning to end, and its one we will be sure to watch many times.
Rent it or Buy it? We say Buy It!
OUR RATING: 8-8.5/10

WE THANK YOU FOR VIEWING OUR REVIEW!! Have a Great Day!! :)
a little boring with few good parts i expected more with cedric the entertainer in it i would have enjoyed it more if it was funnier
Terrible , horrible, dreadful, shallow, etc. I could go on for ever! If you are a Honeymoners fan, don't EVER watch this. I might buy one just so I can burn it! If you are not a honeymooners fan, buy the classic 39 and you will become one. I wish this movie never got released. Now it will be all over the net for ever. My review has nothing at all to do with the seller, only this poor excuse of a movie.
