The 'burbs (1989)


A comedy about one nice guy who gets pushed too far.

The 'Burbs is a 1989 black comedy directed by Joe Dante starring Tom Hanks, Carrie Fisher, Rick Ducommun, Corey Feldman, and Bruce Dern; and written by Dana Olsen, who also briefly appears in the movie. The film pokes fun at USA suburban environments and their eccentric dwellers.

In his typical "good guy" mode, Hanks plays Ray Peterson, a loving family-man with an ordinary life in Mayfield Place, which is located in a stereotypical "white bread" suburban neighborhood. This changes when a mysterious family, the Klopeks, move in next door. Ray's two neighbors, work-shy slacker Art and paramilitary nut Rumsfield, believe the Klopeks are actually a family of murderers who killed Walter, the old man who lives next door. Ray, along with the other two civilians-turned-detectives, attempt to solve the mystery.
