The Honeymooners

Rated PG-13 2005

A racial-switcheroo gimmick isn't enough to justify a big-screen version of a sitcom that specifically depended upon its late star's unique comic gifts. Especially since the movie features both John Leguizamo and Mike Epps, two of the most annoying and unfunny "comic" actors still getting work. Epps seems to have been cast in Art Carney's Ed Norton role based solely on the fact that he frequently wears a stupid hat in real life (casting the currently famous Edward Norton would have been funnier); Cedric the Entertainer does what he can as bus driver Ralph Kramden, but he's been neutered -- "To the moon, Alice!" is now a speculative romantic destination rather than a comic threat of domestic violence. So many sitcom husbands have been based on Jackie Gleason's original that it's fair enough that the greyhound-racing plot used here is more or less cribbed from the very first Simpsons Christmas Special. No less amusing than an average sitcom, but that's certainly not reason enough to buy a ticket.
