Movie Info

In a day-glo-colored, bizarro version of suburbia where adults wear braces on their already-straight teeth, everyone drives golf carts, and children magically turn into golden retrievers, soccer moms and best friends Jill (Jocelyn DeBoer) and Lisa (Dawn Luebbe) are locked in a passive aggressive battle-of-the-wills that takes a turn into the sinister when Lisa begins systematically taking over every aspect of Jill's life--starting with her newborn daughter. Meanwhile, a psycho yoga teacher killer is on the loose, Jill's husband (Beck Bennett) has developed a curious taste for pool water, and Lisa is pregnant with a soccer ball. That's just the tip of the gloriously weird iceberg that is the feature debut from writers-directors Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe, a hilariously demented, Stepford Wives-on-acid satire destined to be an instant cult classic.

  • The wickedly weird (and often wonderful) suburban satire crams more inventive ideas and clear-eyed perspective into 95 minutes than most billion-dollar franchises can do over the course of a dozen movies.

  • Greener Grass is always in control of its deeply bizarre, suburban surrealist tone, even when its story is more like a series of comedy sketches than a feature film.

  • Doesn't quite sustain high-pitch hilarity for its entire 102 minutes, but at its best it's still pretty freaking funny.

  • While it has solid character jokes and goofiness, the movie becomes inert by its end.

  • "Greener Grass" won't exactly make you envious of the over-idealized lifestyle it skewers, and yet it's such a delightful place to inhabit, you won't want to leave when the credits roll.

  • In the vein of a Kids in the Hall episode, set to a John Carpenter score with some David Lynch Twin Peak-ness on the side. It is a must watch!
