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.

Why?
15 June 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

You cannot improve on perfection. Most authorities consider the original TV series to be one of the all-time great sitcoms ever made. Its keys were its appropriateness to its era, and the brilliant cast.

While I certainly appreciate Cedric the Entertainer's considerable talents, with all due respect to him, he is NOT Jackie Gleason, and the other members of this cast cannot hold a candle to the likes of Art Carney and Audrey Meadows.

Here's a tip to Hollywood:

Instead of trying to make every TV show into a movie, why not show some creativity and actually come up with something NEW? If you need a reminder, remember Tom Arnold's horrific remake of McHale's Navy.....or the God-awful remake of Sergeant Bilko of a few years back. You can't do better than the original, now or ever.

If I could give this no stars, I would.
