Ralph Kramden is always looking for something to make him rich. When he loses the down payment on another of his half-baked projects, his wife gives him one day to come up with the cast and save their marriage.
Comedy - This is a sitcom-level comedy based loosely on the '50s television
series of the same name. Silly and simple, the film is perhaps too
dated for a modern audience while fans of the original show may be
upset by the deviations from the old show.
PROFANITY: A few miscellaneous profanities. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Hits and falls played for laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol. ACTION: Dog racing action. COMEDY: Silly slapstick and verbal humor.

Roger EbertFull Review Good 'The Honeymooners' is 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.
USA TodayFull Review Poor Cedric and Epps have none of the team chemistry Gleason shared with Art Carney, and Epps' Norton displays none of Carney's eccentricities. Straddling the line between wink and leer, Epps isn't exactly alluding to his job when noting that he 'does some of his best work down below.'

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
This was not a well attended movie. We were only able to collect 39 moviegoer opinions. It appears our moviegoers rated this movie the same as the critics, very mixed. As an average, around half really enjoyed "The Honeymooners" rating it "Very Good" or higher. Of the remaining half, most of the opinions were "Good," which indicates an average/OK movie. Only the adult females had a few who actually disliked this movie. So, what does all this mean? Most of you will enjoy "The Honeymooners," at least to some degree. I would suggest a matinee to be on the safe side.
Meet Ralph Kramden (Cedric the Entertainer) —a man of vision, taste, and refinement. Now, if he can just get the rest of the world to see it...
By day, Ralph's an ordinary New York City bus driver. But in his off-hours, he's an innovator, an inventor, an entrepreneur
who's just one great idea away from instant wealth. (Unfortunately for Ralph, none of those ideas has yet panned out.) His best friend (and neighbor) is Ed Norton (Mike Epps), who's always up for the latest plan. Wherever Ralph goes, no matter how harebrained the idea, Ed's ready to run down the fire escape and lend a hand.
These two dreamers believe they're taking their families to the next level, but Ralph's wife, Alice (Gabrielle Union), has set her sights on a more practical goal: buying a duplex
fixer-upper with Ed and his wife, Trixie (Regina Hall). When Ralph loses their down payment on yet another of his half-baked projects, Alice is at the end of her rope, giving Ralph just one day to come up with the cash and save their marriage.
