Classic Trailer: The ‘Burbs

Posted October 23, 2016 by Eoin Friel in Classic Trailer

If you were to ever ask me what my all-time favourite comedy movie is I would have to say The ‘Burbs. No contest. This was Tom Hanks at his best and it always bothered me that it’s a movie he never really talks about. The “sardine” scene has to be one of the best pieces of comedy I’ve ever seen and has me crying with laughter every time.

SYNOPSIS: Settling in for some time off in his suburban home, Ray Peterson’s (Tom Hanks) vacation becomes a horror when the Klopeks, a suspiciously odd family, move in down the block. Enlisting the aid of his paranoid buddy, Art (Rick Ducommun), and his militia-man neighbor, Rumsfield (Bruce Dern), Ray sends his son and wife (Carrie Fisher) away on a trip while he investigates the Klopeks. When a neighbor disappears, Ray and his cohorts risk their lives to save their cul-de-sac from the clutches of evil.
