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.
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.Read more ›
The entire movie has many Tribeca popular sights. Walker's Bar is featured in it...yet another place John and Carolyn enjoyed.
If you want to watch a good movie and get a look at where JFK, Jr. lived, rent it, buy it and enjoy it.

Not your typical movie about the challenges of marriage. Feels more like you're a voyeur into their personal lives and finding yourself wanting to give advice to the characters.Published 20 months ago by ART
