Judge Josh Rode wonders when a couple ceases to be "newlywed" and starts being "oldie-wed."
How, exactly, does one define "successful marriage"?
Recipe for Newlyweds cake:
Cook over medium heat until simmering, then add sister Linda (Kerry Bishé, Nice Guy Johnny). She will create instant boiling. Careful not to add too much, or she will become the overwhelming flavor.
Overcook Marsha (Marsha Dietlein Bennett, Little Children) and Max (Max Baker, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest) as the quarreling couple. Their storyline adds the lone sour flavoring to the mix.
Pour five cups of excellent writing into a bowl. Sift in fabulous acting, great live "sets," nice pacing, and just a drop of too-realistic discomfort. Season with faux-documentary filmmaking to taste. Combine all ingredients and layer between the two cake halves.
The Frosting: Strain a standard definition 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen picture through a strainer to remove almost all traces of grain. Blanch a balanced color palette just to the point where the color shades are on the pale side. Mix in Dolby 5.1 Surround mix, making sure most of the sound comes from the center and front speakers. Sub-woofer is optional. Sprinkle in a couple of very short but interesting interviews with Burns and two deleted scenes.
This Newlyweds recipe was thrown together in a very short amount of time by Burns, in order to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Tribeca Film Festival. It is, in his own words, his best film.
