Rating:
PG

The 'Burbs is a classic movie that grabs your attention and keeps you chuckling. Its cast includes stars in their younger days such as Tom Hanks, Carrie Fisher and Corey Feldman. When a new family moves into the neighborhood, Ray (Tom Hanks) is immediately suspicious. Trying to convince his wife and fellow neighbors that something fishy is happening is not as easy as it may seem. Neighbors and pets start mysteriously disappearing, so Ray decides to act. After watching his new neighbors, the Klopeks, at night, dumping strange garbage bags and digging even stranger holes in their backyard, he convinces the other neighbors that they should go over and meet the Klopeks in person. The Klopeks aren't your average neighbors, which is quite obvious after serving their guests sardines and pretzels! Accidentally finding a missing neighbor's toupee and mail in the Klopek's home sets off a series of exciting events you won't want to miss.
