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

    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.

This movie does little more than take pre-existing characters and sets them in the modern time. The problem is that the jokes from the 1950's series don't work today, and especially not without the timing of Gleason and Carney, and the incomparable Audrey Meadows. The movie was a bad idea.

This movie isn't great, and it's barely entertaining, but it's better than people are saying. Full Review »
