Tom Hanks - The formative years.

This is a great example of what Tom Hanks was doing in his former career of a comedic actor, before he returned to serious acting.

The story follows three incredibly nosey suburbanites, spying on their new neighbours the Klopek's as they expect them to be murderers.

Winning performances all round, but especially from Hanks. He is well supported by the likes of Carrie Fisher, as his wife, and ex-army man Bruce Dern, with Henry Gibson giving his usual solid performance.

A greatly funny movie which leaves you wondering why Hanks ever turned his back on comedy.

Classic Suburban Black comedy!!!

Superior black comedy with a power trio,Hanks,Dern and the amusing Rick Ducommum,they are remarkable funny,the picture mix a several success formula to get to reach the high pattern,firstly the odd neighborhood,second a bit sex appeal on Rumsfield's couple and finally a smooth and weird newcomers neighbors...so all this are enough to start a paranoia...more when the audience realize all this were a huge misunderstanding enter an unexpected epic final....a real gem underrated from the eights!!

Resume:

First watch: 1991 / How many: 2 / Source: TV-DVD / Rating: 8

When you don't meet your new neighbors

"The 'Burbs" is a very funny movie. It's not loaded with witty dialog, but it has one funny situation after another. The men who live on their street wonder about the folks who have moved into the unkempt house in the neighborhood. It resembles a haunted house, and they have seen and heard strange things going on there at night.

Tom Hanks plays Ray Peterson who's starting a week's vacation. Wife Carol (Carrie Fisher) wants him to go to their rustic lake cabin to relax. But his interest in the unseen neighbors who moved in three months before has him all keyed up. Neighbors Art Weingartner (Rick Ducommun) and Mark Rumsfield (Bruce Dern) convince Ray that there's something strange going on.

These three go through a series of falls, slips and jolts as they try to uncover and maybe expose the unseen folks. The mayhem that results is hilarious. All of the cast are very good. It's a fun film and may have a subtle message – get to know your new neighbors early.
