Hey, kids! Remember Ralph Kramden? The cranky bus driver who was forever threatening to punch his wife, Alice, in the face? You know, Jackie Gleason! Audrey Meadows!
OK, forget it. "The Honeymooners" stars Cedric the Entertainer as the aforementioned cranky bus driver, only now there's no threat of domestic violence save for forever threatening his wife's savings account with his get-rich-quick schemes.
Alice is played by the gorgeously dimpled Gabrielle Union, whose job in a diner -- where she works with Ralph's buddy Ed's (Mike Epps) minxy wife, Trixie (Regina Hall) -- keeps her looking sharp, acting sassy and dreaming of buying a gorgeous Victorian duplex before it gets flattened for condos by a smarmy real estate developer (Eric Stoltz).
The duplex belongs to a kindly old British lady retiring to Florida, though not before getting in saucy lines like "What's your poison? Gambling? Drink? 'Ho's?" Whoo! Raise the roof, Grandma!
