Ward and June Cleaver have nothing on suburban couple Tom Hanks and Carrie Fisher. Together with their perfect son, Hanks and Fisher are so clean that they squeak. Thus, when new neighbors Henry Gibson, Brother Theodore and Courtney Gains begin evincing bizarre behavior, Hanks is slightly put out. Fisher thinks that Hanks is getting all worked up over nothing.
After Hanks and his fellow suburbanites have endured all sorts of slapstick misadventures in the vain hope of getting "the goods" on the newcomers, we're inclined to agree with Fisher. Please note, however, that The 'Burbs is directed by Joe Dante, the same man who brought you Gremlins. It ain't over until the fat lady sings-and what matters if that fat lady is skinny Tom Hanks?
