The Suburbans is a 1999 drama by director Donal Lardner Ward, starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Donal Lardner Ward, Amy Brenneman, Tony Guma, Craig Bierko, and Will Ferrell. In this star-filled film, Danny (Donal Lardner Ward), Mitch (Craig Bierko), Gil (Will Ferrel), and Rory (Tony Guma) are the members of the long forgotten, 80’s one-hit wonder band The Suburbans, who reunite to perform their only hit single at one of the wedding of one of the band members. When an up-and-coming record company executive in the audience, Cate (Jennifer Love Hewitt), offers the group the chance to get back in the spotlight through a pay-per-view reunion show, contrasting their middle class, suburban lifestyles with their old rock-n-roll image, they jump at the opportunity. But is Cate their only remaining fan? The Suburbans was considered a commercial failure after grossing only $11,130 in its first year, but with its talented cast, the film may be worth giving a shot anyway.

Metacritic Score

  • 40

    The New York Times

    It's cute and jokey and has no particular edge.

  • 30

    Los Angeles Times Gene Seymour

    Goes into a tailspin after its impressive setup. Its dramatic tactics become so tangled and diffuse that, by the end, you get the feeling that everything gets tied up too hastily.

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    A mediocre ensemble comedy-drama that's not particularly funny, involving or even nostalgic.
