One man's quiet suburban life takes a sickening lurch for the worse when a young couple move into the deserted house next door.

I think why this movie fails with most is that it hits too close too home...I listened to an Eel's song today (the other shoe)and immediately flashed back to this movie... Belushi and Aykroyd switched their original roles...with a purpose. Belushi is me...middle-aged, overweight, dull, and boring: the American dream: and he is faithful to that portrayal. Aykroyd is both the man without any moral restraints we long to be, and he is the man we hate, who laughs at the American dream and how it has gotten so twisted. It is a comment on American society and morality and the two actors play it well. Moriarty plays the American woman who can justify anything on whim, be it right or wrong, and Walker is the suffering American wife who is discontented with how her life has turned out. Of course, it is her husband's fault, not her own. Elaine, the child, is our offspring who disdainfully disregards our twisted way of life. It hits too close to home...listen to Eel's song (the other shoe)and you might hear what I am trying to say...
