This story takes place in a typical American neighborhood, when some new neighbors come to live in the house next to Ray Peterson. These new people are really strange; nobody has ever seen them, their house is a real mess, and during the night you can hear weird noises from their basement. The only thing they know is their name: Klopeks. One day Walter (an old man of the neighborhood) suddenly disappears and everyone starts to suspect the Klopeks...Written by

Everyone in the cast and crew had a good time working on the film so much so that Tom Hanks, personally bought everyone sunglasses and left a personal thank you note to everyone in the cast and the crew. See more »
When the family sits down to breakfast, Art tracks some crow in his backyard with a Daisy pump action BB/pellet gun. He fires several shots that sound like a rifle. See more »
This is a great example of what Tom Hanks was doing in his former career of a comedic actor, before he returned to serious acting.
The story follows three incredibly nosey suburbanites, spying on their new neighbours the Klopek's as they expect them to be murderers.
Winning performances all round, but especially from Hanks. He is well supported by the likes of Carrie Fisher, as his wife, and ex-army man Bruce Dern, with Henry Gibson giving his usual solid performance.
A greatly funny movie which leaves you wondering why Hanks ever turned his back on comedy.
