I just heard about this gem today…
You guys know how for the most part I absolutely loathe remakes. Sure there are classics out there that are themselves remakes, but I’m talking about how they’ve been done in the last 10 years or so. Anyway, the latest beloved series heading for the dumpster is: The Honeymooners. Cedric the Entertainer (it pains me to even type that) and Mike Epps are playing Ralph Cramden and Ed Norton.
The orginal show was hysterically funny, but touching at the same time, with Jackie Gleason’s depiction of a little guy with big dreams trying to break out of poverty. At least in the trailer, none of the endearing qualities of either of these characters comes across.
I don’t know, maybe I’m wrong, but I doubt it. Check out the trailer for yourselves here.
