Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"Burns and Fitzgerald make a snappy onscreen couple."
‑ Matt Singer, Time Out Chicago
"Okay, so he's not Woody Allen. That's setting the bar a bit too high. But for Burns, he's never been better."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Burns's faux-documentary style allows space for some wickedly revealing confessions, while jump cuts accentuate his characters' rapid-fire showdowns."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"Ed Burns' latest writing and directing venture holds the perfect recipe for swiftly putting audiences into a New York state of mind."
‑ Caitlin Colford, Paste Magazine
"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."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"It has both the charms and the shortcomings of the indie fringe."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Breaking news: When you get married, you will inevitably deal with your spouse's family and exes in some capacity!"
‑ Matt Pais, RedEye
"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."
‑ Prairie Miller, NewsBlaze
