Tom Hanks – The formative years.
This is a great example of what Tom Hanks was doing in his former career of a comedic actor, before he returned to serious acting.
The story follows three incredibly nosey suburbanites, spying on their new neighbours the Klopek’s as they expect them to be murderers.
Winning performances all round, but especially from Hanks. He is well supported by the likes of Carrie Fisher, as his wife, and ex-army man Bruce Dern, with Henry Gibson giving his usual solid performance.
A greatly funny movie which leaves you wondering why Hanks ever turned his back on comedy.
A movie you can relate to
‘The ‘Burbs’ is a great movie and I would recommend it to anyone. Tom Hanks does a great job at playing the role of an ordinary guy with ordinary problems. Every time I watch this movie, I can really feel like I am actually there. We all have weird neighbors and can relate to what Hanks is going through. It has also been a fantasy for many of us to try and find out exactly what our neighbors are up to, but we never have the guts to do it. Movies are made so that we can escape reality for a couple of hours and feel like we are doing things that we would most likely never get to do. This movie does it better than any other movie I have seen.
Most of the other people that I have talked to have agreed with me that ‘The ‘Burbs’ is one of the most underrated comedies ever made. I don’t believe that it was unsuccessful, but it definitely doesn’t get the credit it deserves. If you want to see a movie that you can relate to, then watch this.
