News & Interviews for The Honeymooners
Critic Reviews for The Honeymooners
It could be part-autobiographical for director John Schultz who blunders through a tediously half-baked plot and fails to make it pay off.
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.
I like the cast. They're very talented, they're really funny, they have a dreadful script to work with.
John Leguizamo steals the show as its sleazy trainer -- not that there's much to steal from John Schultz's joylessly schematic paycheck.
Audience Reviews for The Honeymooners
This movie shouldn't even have been made, it's kind of arrogant by everyone involved.
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?
