Critic Reviews of "The 'Burbs"Chicago TribuneFebruary 22, 2017
The 'Burbs doesnit quite go the distance, but for most of its length it is a superbly inventive, insightful and funny black comedy.Orlando SentinelFebruary 22, 2017
This movie was directed by Joe Dante, whose style has become increasingly broad and abrasive since he made the clever Gremlins back in 1984.Chicago TribuneFebruary 22, 2017
The script would like to be a horror film, a comedy and a commentary on suburban living, but it doesn't hit any target.VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Director Joe Dante funnels his decidedly cracked view of suburban life through dark humour in The 'Burbs.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
Characteristically, Dante's nonchalant attitude towards plot structure makes for erratic pacing (the last half hour does flag), but that's part and parcel of his breathless, anarchic style.New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
The Burbs is a big unfurnished movie about some very small characters living in a suburbia that is consciously designed to look like sit-com land.Reel Film ReviewsMarch 02, 2017
A fairly disappointing flop...South Florida Sun-SentinelFebruary 22, 2017
Tom Hanks should forfeit his Academy Award nomination for Big, now that preview audiences have gotten a look at The `Burbs.Film4February 22, 2017
One of the most consistently overlooked movies of the 80s.Radio TimesFebruary 22, 2017
[Director Joe Dante] excels at this sort of thing and delivers an intriguing picture, even though it threatens to stray into David Lynch territory but ultimately cops out. Bruce Dern and Carrie Fisher offer fine support to the affable Hanks.TV GuideFebruary 22, 2017
This black comedy is often hilarious, but is betrayed by an ending forced on Dante by the film's producers.Combustible CelluloidJune 15, 2015
One of Dante's most enjoyable films.
