Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe solidify themselves as reigning queens of satire.

Greener Grass is full of dark, delicious weirdness. Don't look too hard for deeper meaning.
November 24, 2019
Though our world has become a rather strange place it is in no way as bizarro as directors Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe short film Greener Grass.

Greener Grass is strange in the best way, and that's just what I look for in a comedy. Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe created a wonderfully surreal comedy that perfectly captures the absurdity of suburbia.

[Greener Grass] might have been funny on paper, but it dosn't work on the screen and even ends up being irritating. [Full review in Spanish]

A hypnotic watch, yet hard to pin down.

Greener Grass ridicules a very American way of suburban life and social interaction that perhaps doesn't have as much visceral relevance in this country: the idea is stretched thinly, it's a laugh but the fun palls over a feature length film.

It might feel a little rough round the edges but, for a first feature, makes for quite the introduction; like the backstabbers in their sights, this pair are clearly ones to watch.

It's clear [Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe], who cut their teeth doing improv before making movies, have the chops to sustain this high-wire act, because most of the gags land.

I can see what the filmmakers are aiming for, but suburban life seems too easy a target, and the surreal comedy too broad to deliver the desired impact.

If you possess an appreciation for the absurd, there are big laughs throughout this wonderfully oddball enterprise.

This absurdist romp offers sumptuous set design, a dedicated cast and very few laughs.

Jill is the ostensible protagonist because she has something resembling an emotional arc, yet she's so often a part of the random weirdness that it's difficult to identify with her.

A satirical send-up of suburban life that feels like it would be right at home airing in the late-night hours of Adult Swim, Greener Grass is an absurdly offbeat examination of the American Dream.

Something that goes beyond [black humor], more extreme, almost sick. [Full review in Spanish]
October 24, 2019
An absurdist suburban satire, arch and surreal... Wears thin before it's over, but it made me laugh enough overall to recommend it.
October 24, 2019
Greener Grass feels sometimes episodic, but it can be an incredibly entertaining romp through the picket fence yards of an America that only exists in our collective unconscious.
October 24, 2019
It's a nutty satire on the suburban normal that should make us wary of filmmakers who have nothing to say.
October 23, 2019
Randomly satiric in aim, but a few funny set pieces that play like three episodes of "Upright Citizen's Brigade" strung together don't add up to much of a movie.
October 22, 2019
It's a bravura piece of work.
