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.

The film gives no screen credits to Jackie Gleason, who created the original show "The Honeymooners", on which this movie is loosely based on, and also played Ralph Cramden. However the original show itself is credited in the opening credits as "Based on characters from the CBS television series". See more »

How dare they call this piece of crap The Honeymooners
The movie needs a new title. Thanks Hollywood you have just destroyed the concept of a TV Show that was one of my favorites. On the way of out of the theater people were bitching and asking if they could get their money back.
Idea....rename the movie it has nothing to do with the TV series.
Where is the feeling that you use to get after watching the honeymooners.
What happened to creating a movie that depicts the era that the original was filmed in.
What happened to casting? The characters in the new movie are nothing like the TV series.
This remake should be renamed or removed. Its a load of crap!
