[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]

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.

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.

Something that goes beyond [black humor], more extreme, almost sick. [Full review in Spanish]

It's a nutty satire on the suburban normal that should make us wary of filmmakers who have nothing to say.

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.

You don't have to like "Greener Grass" to appreciate what it attempts to do. At the same time, that doesn't mean it warrants a recommendation either.

Greener Grass is wild from the get-go, with the cinematography and set design wholly committed to the joke, but there's also a clear strain the script is going to to be as weird as humanly possible.

Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe's indie is full of gifted comedy players but doesn't have anything to say.

Admirably absurd but not much else, Greener Grass is a strange and almost indecipherable satire of suburban life.

A deadpan take on suburban hell - I hesitate to call it a comedy, black or otherwise - the movie takes competitiveness to such excruciatingly surreal lengths that every would-be joke feels agonizingly strained.
