NEWLYWEDS rocks it Dec 27 2011
By J Boyd - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
In the spirit of ANNIE HALL, this funny drama about a newlywed couple, and their irresponsible friends, should bring a great warm feeling to anyone who's ever been in love. Shot on a shoestring budget in New York City (Tribeca area), Ed Burns' mise-en-scene film explores the importance of chemistry and responsibility in mature relationships. Great performances, beautiful cinematography, and creative editing highlight another link in the Ed Burns cinematic lineage. The DIY American New Wave has begun. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend if you like Woody Allen films Jan. 4 2012
By Chris in Santa Barbara - Published on Amazon.com

Watched this online and can't recommend it enough. Ed Burns saw Husbands and Wives as I did and fell in love with it. This script is much better than the one for Sidewalks of New York. See Husbands and Wives and you'll see the style Ed Burns is going for and I think he nails it pretty good. My only criticism is the interview scene when they are in bed together. That was kind of out of place.

It is a very subtle and tricky film narrative style where sometimes you need to obviously be showing the characters interviewed by an assumed documentary film maker and other times Burns needs to tell an intimate story and and wants us to assume the doc crew has left but we're still seeing what is happening. It's an almost impossible task but Burns pulls it off because the characters and writing are good as Woody did with Husbands and Wives. I'm sure the goal was to have the older sister come off as a shrew - Total Success Ed. What a nightmare she was. She didn't have the subtle complexity of Judy Davis in Husbands and Wives but she was hell enough. There wasn't a Sydney Pollack parallel. No one could have touched his performance in Husbands and Wives. One of the funniest performances ever on film in my opinion.

Ed Burns' own acting grounds the whole film. In this film he gets to the bottom of what guys most value in a relationship. Sex and no drama.

What hasn't been mentioned is Ed Burns made this film for under 10K. Amazing. I've sat through painful studio, "hollywood" garbage that didn't come close to this film in terms of script and acting. Tower Heist, for example, was an epically terrible movie. Ugh.

As a huge Ed Burns film fan I can't recommend this film highly enough. I'd rather watch this again than see Sherlock etc. The fact it takes place in the greatest city on earth doesn't hurt and New York looks great in the snowfall.

way to go Edward Burns Dec 31 2011
By annmichael - Published on Amazon.com
I majored in film and studied lots of them. A big no-no is to write, direct and act in your own film. Not many can pull it off. Rocky for example,Stallone pulled it off. Tom Hanks with Larry Crowne, terrible. But Edward Burns kicked it. Especially his writing. Such insightful depictions of the bitter sweetness in all of us trying our best at marriage. Great acting by all and phynominal style of cinematography given the budget. One of my favorite this year. I'm going to be looking for Burns from now on.

A Quintessential New York Relationship Dramedy: Slight And Familiar, But Not Unappealing May 11 2012
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
To date myself, I remember when Edward Burns' first film "The Brothers McMullen" came out in 1995 and picked up a top prize at Sundance as well as an Independent Spirit Award. It's fair to say that Burns was perceived as a fresh new voice with big things in his future. Over the next sixteen years, his career has had its share of ups and downs both as an actor and as a filmmaker. Despite constantly working, though, and being both recognizable and famous (arguably his highest profile role was in Saving Private Ryan), he has yet to match the accolades awarded to that first feature film. 2011's "Newlyweds" is what I like to think of as the quintessential New York relationship dramedy. It is a stylized piece in which contemporary (and privileged) city dwellers exchange pithy banter about the state of modern romance without ever digging beneath the surface. For its lack of connection with the real world, it might just as easily have been made 20 years ago and it is sculpted in a technique perfected by Woody Allen more years ago than I can count. Don't get me wrong. I actually liked "Newlyweds" fine, it really just seemed like a movie I've seen many time before. Yet, it certainly has its share of amusing moments and a number of engaging performances.

I really won't detail the plot points of "Newlyweds" except to say that Burns and Caitlin Fitzgerald play a married couple who believe they are in a progressive relationship. Their lives, however, are complicated by a myriad of supporting players that showcase different sides to the battle of the sexes. Fitzgerald's judgmental sister and her husband are at the end of their tether. Burns' carefree and irresponsible sister shows up unannounced. Fitzgerald's ex-husband is a frequent nuisance. Everyone showcases a sharp wit and bounces the dialogue around in an amusing volley. Being a writer's piece, the conversations seemed staged and overly written--but it is not without its charms. It might all be very pleasant, it just doesn't amount to very much. You've seen these characters in countless other movies, there's no surprise, no real hook.

In the telling, Burns relies on heavily expected shots and edits as well. This being sophisticated, the actors often speak directly at the camera in confessional style interviews. Dramatic scenes are edited into choppy segments to appear more artful. At one point, Burns' sister is speaking on the phone and the scene is cut about 5 times with slightly different angles on her face. I don't mind the style, per se, but once again it is eerily reminiscent of dozens of other movies striving for the same feel. The stylistic devices don't add anything, they simply distract. It's hard not to compare Burns' efforts in "Newlyweds" with Woody Allen. He's certainly someone to emulate, and I'm never surprised when a new director borrows from his repertoire. Burns has been around for so many years, though, I just wanted something more unique--something that felt new and relevant. Amusing, but slight, I liked "Newlyweds" but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to endorse it. About 3 1/2 stars. KGHarris, 5/12.

Not my favorite Ed Burns film Dec 26 2013
By Promise - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I'm torn between three and tour stars here. I like Ed Burns a lot so I'm tempted to give this four but,in thinking about it, I have to go with three. This is my least favorite of his films.

As usual he plays the moral center of a bunch of characters who are a little less stable than he is. The problem I had with this film was that the other characters just weren't very likable. His wife is not attractive and is often unreasonable; one wonders what Buzzy saw in here, other than that she was a "rock." Actually the script says she is beautiful so perhaps it was just a casting mistake. I know he made this film on a limited budget so maybe she was the best he could get. I think that if he had used a more appealing actress in the role the film would have been much more likable. Her sister is an outright shrew, also not attractive. Her husband is a shlump. His step-sister is quite cute but way out there. Also there are a few extra lovers and ex's who have nothing to recommend them.. I really didn't care about what happened to any of them except Buzzy/Burns and I thought he could do a lot better.

The script is ok although a little too cute and overly mannered for my taste. Contemporary New Yorkers who have relationship problems are of limited interest to me, although they may appeal to others. I can't say that I didn't enjoy it but it didn't leave me feeling warm and cozy like Burns other films have done. I think Burns needs to leave Manhattan and find a better group of people to focus on.....maybe try the Midwest?
