Storyline

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. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Quotes

Ralph Kramden: [after getting kicked out of the pool hall and then Ed's phone rings] What are you doing? We got to get back in there.
Ed Norton: [Ed picks up the message on his phone] No time to play. We've got a major back up in the sewer system.
Ralph Kramden: How come every time we go out they call you?
Ed Norton: I'm a specialist. It's like being a brain surgeon or Spider-Man.
Ralph Kramden: Yeah, but Spider-Man won't let us get our asses beat down in a pool hall.

Not worth it
27 June 2005 | by (Newark, DE) – See all my reviews

This movie has all of the charm of a 2nd grader playing around with a video camera and just as much plot. The story begins with a charming love story that has no root in reality and does not improve after that. At least the film is consistent. The movie tries hard enough to make the audience laugh but the end result is a series of jokes that are extremely predictable. I think its safe to say that just about every line in this film was a plaid out cliché. Its hard to believe that people were actually paid to create this movie. I guess it stands as proof that if the paycheck is big enough, someone will be willing to do it. I had actually never seen a film in the IMDb bottom 100 before, so at the very least I can now say that I have.
