Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Why? Why would someone do this? How did we get here, watching mediocre remakes of classic 1950s sitcoms? What is the meaning of it all? Does cinema have a purpose beyond supporting the theater-concessions industry?

- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, June 10, 2005

Rotten: John Leguizamo steals the show as its sleazy trainer -- not that there's much to steal from John Schultz's joylessly schematic paycheck.

- Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times, Friday, June 10, 2005

Rotten: The script (credited to four screenwriters) uses a plethora of already-dated urban inside humor that reeks of pandering.

I quite liked this film. It didn't suffer from having loads of cliques like it could have done. I'm not familiar with the original Jackie Gleason version, so I give it the thumbs up! (although when/if I get round to seeing it, it may very well mean that stars come off)

A Complete and Original "Tv-Show turned Movie, and Maybe that's why it was only as half as good as a normal half and hour Sit-com?

I loved this remake!!! And not just because my cousin Mike Epps is in it; but that did help ;?}. A wonderful cast who stayed true to the original characters nuances, while yet bringing their own unique swagger to this iconic series. John Leguizamo was outright hilarious!!! A good one to watch with family, wifey or that significant other!!
