He's a stranger in an even stranger land...suburbia.
Hanks is a mild-mannered suburbanite whose idyllic neighborhood is turned upside-down when a suspicious family moves in.
Editor's Note
Set in an average neighborhood that is anything but average, Tom Hanks portrays suburbanite Ray Peterson, who finally takes a much-needed week of vacation. However, Ray doesn't use the time to jet off to some exotic locale, there are no frolicsome adventures in his plans, all he wants is a week of mindless relaxation in his own comfortable suburban home. His wife Carol (Carrie Fisher) warns him that he's liable to go crazy from the boredom, but he refuses to listen. The nothingness finally does get to him, however, and he creates a little excitement for himself by spying on his neighbors - the Klopeks, a mysterious, oddball family that just moved in to a dilapidated home down the street. When the neighborhood grouch mysteriously disappears, Ray and a motley crew of other neighborhood crackpots begin to concoct wild theories about the strange, and perhaps murderous, goings on in the Klopek's creepy, old house. For one brief, shining moment their lives seem to have some meaning and purpose as Ray and his friends become consumed with the secrets of the bizarre family. Tom Hanks is hysterical as Ray, bring his own brand of boyish charm and zany slapstick comedy to the screen.

Professional Reviews

USA Today
"...Joe Dante does have a witty visual style..." 02/17/1989 p.6D

"...[The] script is peppered with gems....Hanks does a fine impersonation of a regular guy on the verge of a nervous breakdown, while Dern adds another memorable psychotic to his résumé..." 02/22/1989

Washington Post 0 of 10
As a director, Joe Dante has a sharp eye for the peculiarity of everyday things, and in The 'Burbs, his new comedy starring Tom Hanks, a placid suburban neighborhood becomes a kind of yuppie Hell town. - Hal Hinson
