Newlyweds is a 2011 American comedy/drama film written, directed and starring Edward Burns, with Kerry Bishé, Marsha Dietlein, and Caitlin FitzGerald. Newlyweds was selected to close the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival.[2]


The honeymoon period ends quickly for Buzzy (Burns) and Katy (Fitzgerald) when Buzzy's sister Linda arrives unannounced to the couples' apartment looking for a place to stay. Linda's arrival complicates Buzzy and Katie's marriage and forces both to re-evaluate their relationship.



Newlyweds was shot in a faux-documentary style on location in Tribeca, New York City.[3] The movie cost only $9,000 to produce and was filmed entirely on a Canon 5D.[4] It is the smallest budget Burns has even made a movie for.


The soundtrack is composed by PT Walkley.[5]


The film received generally positive reviews and currently holds a 70% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 10 reviews.[6]
