Ho-hum updating of the classic Jackie Gleason 1950s' television series with Cedric the Entertainer as Ralph Kramden, the New York bus driver, Mike Epps as Ed Norton, his sewer-working friend, and Gabrielle Union and Regina Hall as their long-suffering wives, in a contrived story about Ralph and Ed entering a mutt in a dog race to earn money to buy a suburban house for their wives, after Ralph squanders their savings on an antique subway train. John Schultz's film bears little resemblance to the much-loved series in either tone or laugh quotient, and without Gleason or sidekick Art Carney, there's little point to the endeavor. Some mild profanity, crass expressions, fleeting irreverence, crude humor and innuendo. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
