He's a man of peace
in a savage land...
A comedy about one nice guy who got pushed too far.
Tom Hanks portrays suburbanite Ray Paterson, whose plans for a peaceful vacation are disturbed by a creepy new family on the block, in this outrageous suspense-comedy directed by Joe Dante. To the disappointment of his wife Carol (carrie Fisher), Ray decides to spend a relaxing week at home, and soon gets into with his neighbours - a hefty busybody (Ricky Ducommun), a freaked-out ex-soldier (Bruce Dern), and a spacey teenager (Corey Feldman) - as they observe the strange happenings next door at the Klopek's bizarre residence.
When neighborhood grouch suddenly disappears, the men are convinced the ramshackle house hides some hideous clues. Armed with assault rifles, high-powered binoculars and a shovel, they decide to see for themselves exactly what is going on in the Klopek place. Set in an average neighborhood that is anything but average, THE 'BURBS blends slapstick comedy and spine-tingling mystery with the type of witty humour that has made Tom Hanks one of today's most popular stars.
