Reviewed in Salon Magazine's Review by Andrew O'Hehir :

In the wake of Ryan Coogler’s “Fruitvale Station” and “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” and Alexandre Moors’ “Blue Caprice” and Andrew Dosumnu’s “Mother of George,” the hype about 2013 as the year of Black Cinema – and independent-minded, free-spirited and wide-ranging black cinema, at that – isn’t hype anymore. And that brings us to writer-director Shaka King’s Brooklyn-made labor of love “Newlyweeds,” which is – wait, what was I saying? And where am I? Oh, that’s right: weed. I’m not saying that lots of people who went to see this indie comedy breakthrough over the weekend in New York and L.A., where it’s already playing, showed up stoned. And I’m not saying they didn’t. I’m saying that King has fearlessly forged into unexplored territory — that being the African-American stoner comedy, with an adult audience in view – and the results are profoundly hilarious, occasionally heartbreaking, often brilliant and entirely devoid of political piety.

“Newlyweeds” has a tremendous cast overall, including small parts for the ace character actors Isiah Whitlock Jr. (as a jailhouse predator in a purple suit, lamenting the “cracker” propensity for smoking weed mixed with tobacco), Anthony Chisholm (as a steel-spined middle-class dad) and Hassan Johnson (as a straight-shooting, good-hearted drug dealer named Two for Three). Colman Domingo, who had small parts in both “Lincoln” and “The Butler,” nearly steals the whole movie in a supporting role as a pretentious, fashion-plate museum curator with a jet-set demeanor and a stash of Mongolian hashish. (His character puts me in mind of that Chris Rock line about the African-American arts community of Brooklyn: “I never knew black people could be snotty.

This movie was a pleasant surprise about urban life through the eyes of a young couple who love each other, but also love to smoke pot. The story gets complicated when their self-created paradise is infiltrated by an outsider with possibly ill intentions. Our couple splits and our hero is forced to do some serious soul searching. The trip (no pun intended) is a fun one and I would suggest this movie for lovers who partake together.

The actors look like real people in a real life situation. I love how the writer didn't make this film into another stereotypical pothead comedy. This is a film that makes you go, "hmmm."
