The 'Burbs (1989)

Classic 80's hi jinx. They don't make 'em like this anymore. Sadly, it took me 23 years to finally catch this, now all those references make sense. How about that Bruce Dern? This guy is going places. #anytimemovie

The 'Burbs (1989)

An odd mash of 80's mainstream comedy with dark comedy that works for me. One of my most rewatched films, I just keep coming back to the great performances of Tom Hanks and Bruce Dern who are both a little crazier than either would like to admit.
