The 'Burbs Poster

A poster for Joe Dante's horror comedy The 'Burbs! I love this movie. Back in our college days, my wife (then girlfriend) lived with a bunch of my friends in one house. The landlord sucked but looked pretty much like Brother Theodore. I don't remember their names, but we still refer back to him and his wife as the Klopeks.

The 'burbs is my favorite comedy film of all time. I watch it at least once a month or every couple of months and I'm still not sick of it.

This is the most fun movie ever. I watch it every once in a while and still laugh and still love every minute of it. They should make a sequel about Mayfield Place 23 years later.

Thanks a lot! It still remains one of my favorite comedies and certainly my favorite Tom Hanks film!

It's one of my favorites. I'm surprised at how well it holds up, still. Hilarious stuff. I wish Tom Hanks did more comedies.

God, I love that film. So many great lines. And this picture is just as awesome!

"God, I love this street!"

"Ray, this is Walter!"

"It's a bone."
"It's a femur."
"It's a femur bone."

I could quote this movie all day and all night.

"You're chanting, Ray. You're chanting! Once they get inside here...it's all over, pal."

My mom also loves the film. Her favorite character is Walter's dog, "Queeeee-nie!". I think the dog was a poodle. She thought it was adorable.

Every character got great lines in the film. That's one of things I love about this film. I could quote it all the time, too.

That's great! I love your little story about it too. You should check out the pic of my signed burbs DVD sleeve. I've also met Courtney Gains (Hans) and a couple days ago I took my picture with him!

Thanks! How cool! Saw your picture with Tom Wilson, too! He was supposed to come to our local comedy club a while ago, but bailed on us. Boo!

Oh my God, I LOVE this movie. But whenever I try and talk about it, no one knows what the hell I'm talking about but my family. It's such a classic. Great poster, and great movie. :D We had these people across the street that we used to call "The Burbs" as they were really odd. It was funny, though.

Did they take their garbage out in the middle of the night and beat it with a shovel?
NiGhT-sTaLkEr13's avatar
LOL! Yes, they did! Okay, they didn't beat it with a shovel like 'Hans Christian Anderson' XD But they took their garbage out at night... and then they'd fight. And we'd be sitting there in the dark listening to them. Hee, hee. It was awesome. But then they moved as one stabbed someone and went to prison. >>
