The movie's story actually does work as a story and not simply as a wheezy Hollywood formula. Sometimes you walk into a movie with quiet dread and walk out with quiet delight.

Charlotte Observer
It honors the tone of that wonderful comedy while setting it in present-day New York City.

The Honeymooners isn't the worst of the endless spate of TV rehashes, but it still feels perfunctory.

Epps has a nicely beaten charm to him -- among the leads, he alone looks like he knows what a trip to the moon costs.

New York Daily News
Cedric is certainly the bright spot in this movie - personable, silly and lovable, with just enough of Gleason's girth, timing and humanity to make you wish he'd driven Ralph Kramden's bus onto the lot of a different movie.

The movie suffers from a devastating flaw for a comedy: It isn't very funny.

Miami Herald
What's missing is some faith in the audience's intelligence and, more importantly, the jokes.

Baltimore Sun
At least The Honeymooners is not one of those remakes that looks bad compared to the original. It's just bad, period.

The Hollywood Reporter
A lackluster affair, devoid of laughs and just about anything else one might construe as entertainment.
25
A pitiful update that saddles poor Cedric the Entertainer with the unenviable task of taking over Jackie Gleason's premier creation, Ralph Kramden.

Philadelphia Inquirer
This one is so bad that even Ed Norton couldn't get this mess to move through the sewer.
