Set in an average neighborhood that is anything but average, Tom Hanks portrays suburbanite Ray Peterson, who finally takes a much-needed week of vacation. However, Ray doesn't use the time to jet off to some exotic locale, there are no frolicsome adventures in his plans, all he wants is a week of mindless relaxation in his own comfortable suburban home. His wife Carol (Carrie Fisher) warns him that he's liable to go crazy from the boredom, but he refuses to listen. The nothingness finally does get to him, however, and he creates a little excitement for himself by spying on his neighbors - the Klopeks, a mysterious, oddball family that just moved in to a dilapidated home down the street. When the neighborhood grouch mysteriously disappears, Ray and a motley crew of other neighborhood crackpots begin to concoct wild theories about the strange, and perhaps murderous, goings on in the Klopek's creepy, old house. For one brief, shining moment their lives seem to have some meaning and purpose as Ray and his friends become consumed with the secrets of the bizarre family. Tom Hanks is hysterical as Ray, bring his own brand of boyish charm and zany slapstick comedy to the screen.

This is the second time I've ordered from Overstock & the service has been great both times! The shipping is incredibly quick, and all items have come in perfect condition. The Burbs is an amazing classic comedy. Tom Hanks gives a great performance as a goofball suburbanite who thinks his neighbors are murderers. Corey Feldman & other great supporting cast members bring extra fun to this flick.
The 'Burbs has always been my favorite movie. I was so happy to see that it was on DVD. The DVD has the original trailer and it also has an alternant ending, which was really fun to see. I didn't have any problems with the quality of the DVD like the other reviewer, it was perfectly clear!
