Movie Info

Buzzy (Edward Burns) and Katie (Caitlin FitzGerald) are a newly married couple living a seemingly conflict-free life. But when Buzzy's damaged and impulsive half-sister Linda (Kerry Bishé) arrives at their doorstep expecting to stay for an indefinite period in their Tribeca loft, her antics threaten to disrupt the couple's commitment to an "easy" marriage. Meanwhile, with Katie's sister Marsha projecting suspicions of her own husband's infidelity onto Buzzy, will the couple's formerly trusting and insulated life be able to withstand the dysfunctions of their respective siblings? -- (C) Tribeca

Critic Reviews for Newlyweds

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3)

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.

Top Critic

Burns's faux-documentary style allows space for some wickedly revealing confessions, while jump cuts accentuate his characters' rapid-fire showdowns.

It has both the charms and the shortcomings of the indie fringe.

Audience Reviews for Newlyweds

Not bad, but definitely sad to watch, given the state of most relationships/marriages out there. A pretty decent movie though, with a rather basic plot-line, but interesting characters and good acting.

Newlyweds may not bring new ideas to the themes of marriage and family, but benefits from a likeable cast that fits perfectly together with witty dialogue and a realistic well paced tone.
