Movie Review: The 'Burbs (1989) 🏠🏡🏚🏘🏠🏡🏚🏘

A group of bored surbanites become obsessed with the mysterious new neighbours. Tom Hanks, Carrie Fisher, Corey Feldman and Bruce Dern star. There is a mention of the terrible 1970s movie 'The Sentinel'. There is weird behaviour and Ray (Hanks) becomes convinced his new neighbours are cannibal satan worshipping serial killers. Things get wild and funny until the letdown ending when Ray turns out to have been right all along.

Best Lines:

“They mowed their lawn. They had a lawn to mow.”

“He trains his dog to crap in my yard.”

“They're daring each other to ring the doorbell!

“Never seen anybody drive their garbage down to the street and then bang the hell out of it with a stick.”

“The three of us going through their garbage at 11 o'clock at night in the middle of a rainstorm?”

“You had that in your trousers all day?”
