Critic Reviews for Newlyweds
Ed Burns' latest writing and directing venture holds the perfect recipe for swiftly putting audiences into a New York state of mind.
Breaking news: When you get married, you will inevitably deal with your spouse's family and exes in some capacity!
Okay, so he's not Woody Allen. That's setting the bar a bit too high. But for Burns, he's never been better.
As [Burns'] characters grow older and more entrenched in borrowed luxury (Buzzy is a physical trainer who married into money), their charm wears increasingly thin.
Burns's faux-documentary style allows space for some wickedly revealing confessions, while jump cuts accentuate his characters' rapid-fire showdowns.
Newlyweds is funny, but never at the expense of its ideas. Whereas most relationship comedies these days are contrived and dopey, this one strives to be more truthful, and it succeeds. A solid, insightful human comedy.
Edward Burns perfects the art of movie conversation with tangy wit, tapping into the rich tapestry of urban culture teeming in his body of work.
