  3. Bob's rating of the film The 'burbs

    Dark comedy that doesn't get much recognition it deserves. Jerry Goldsmith's soundtrack manages to sound eerie or dramatic at one time and like a puppy play at the other. Cast is priceless with Hanks' troubled average Joe and Dern's Vietnam war veteran, but it's Theodore that makes every scene hilarious. Perfect pacing, nice sets and nods to horror ingredients make this little movie a pure enjoyment of watching.

  4. Chase Vault's rating of the film The 'burbs

    It's a movie for kids. 20 years ago I probably would have given it 5 stars.

  5. Louis Léonard's rating of the film The 'burbs

  6. Harriehhh's rating of the film The 'burbs

    I thoroughly enjoyed it up until the twist at the end, which seemed to detract from a running critique against the paranoia and prejudices that exist in suburban neighbourhoods. Now I'm not quite sure what it stood for, but it was still lots of fun and ideal for lazy Sunday viewing.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film The 'burbs

    Une comédie sympathique, un peu longuette, de la part du tonique Joe Dante ! www.cinefiches.com

  8. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The 'burbs

    Joe Dante's suburban Rear Window, and if it's not up to his best—it's far too leaky—it also shows his commitment to invading "normal" environments with fresh genre-flick weirdness (including a shout-out to Night of the Demon). Jonathan Rosenbaum wrote an interesting piece on it, on how it suggests several possible targets for its satire but doesn't insist you buy into any of them.

  9. Marin's rating of the film The 'burbs

  10. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film The 'burbs

    Hanks and Dante did make a good combination for this wacky comedy favorite. Truly another one of those films I used to watch all the time whenever it was on TV as a kid.

    Das beginnt vielversprechend: Irgendwo in der amerikanischen Vorstadt ziehen neue Nachbarn in eine Art Gothic House, das in dieser Umgebung wirkt, als würde Tarantula Platz nehmen auf einer Sahnetorte...

    Do you remember the moment you realized Tom Hanks is annoying?

  14. kari1717's rating of the film The 'burbs

    Bruce Dern steals the show.

  15. Palmat's rating of the film The 'burbs

    An all time fave for me! The blend of light 80´s comedy with zany horror tropes makes for a movie experience quite unlike anything else. The cast is beyond awesome and play their stereotypes with glee. The score by Goldsmith is very good at keeping the gears shifting between laughs and goosebumps. The underlying critique of suburban comformity and paranoia might be bungled in the last reel, but who cares! A MUST-SEE!

  16. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The 'burbs

    Removing the twist might have given the critique of suburban prejudice a more scathing & progressive edge; however, Dante's post-modern riposte to Rear Window is still one of the great comedy horrors, utilising broad stereotypical caricatures not for social satire but as a means of contrasting cinematic forms; creating a world where the influence of Hollywood fantasy has spilled out into the all too mundane reality.

  17. dave gunn's rating of the film The 'burbs

    Ridiculous in all the fun ways you expect from the late '80s.

  18. film_lies101's rating of the film The 'burbs

  19. Igor Leoni's rating of the film The 'burbs

    2.5. Not as good as I remembered, most of the gags are old and silly, but I like the criticism on the emptiness of middle class suburban lives.

  24. S Campbell's rating of the film The 'burbs

    Vastly unrated film fron Joe Dante features some great performances from Hanks,Dern and Rick Ducommun as the mosy annoting neigbour in the world and Henry Gibson as head of the sinister Klopeks. A comedy with a nice nasty streak and a Coen brothers type feel to it
