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

There's a shadow of a noose on the wall over Uncle Reuben's right shoulder when the neighbors first visit the Klopek's house. See more »
In the breakfast scene Art re-calls his conversation with "the real estate broad that sold them the place". Later the Dr. Klopek describes killing the Nap's and taking the house from them. If this were true the house would not have been put on the market and there would not have been a real estate agent to speak with. See more »
Ya know, did you ever see the movie "The Sentinel," Mr Peterson? It's about the old guy who owns the apartment which is kinda like the, uh, gateway to hell.
No, I, I didn't see that.
Well, I was doin' some thinkin' and you know, being that their last house burned down and all, it's like maybe, somebody left the gate open.

At the end of the Universal Studios logo, the camera zooms into Earth and to where the film takes place. At the end of the film, the effect is played in reverse. See more »
This is a movie about an ordinary guy living in an ordinary neighborhood, but with not so ordinary neighbors.
I thought this movie was hilarious! I laughed several times. All the people that have seen it said that they loved it, too! Tom Hanks, Corey Feldman, Courtney Gains, Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, Brother Theodore, Henry Gibson and Rick Ducommun did a great job! I am glad that they were in this movie! It was a very good movie with a surprising twist at the end. There is a lot of irony in it, and that adds to the suspense! The whole idea of these "eccentric" and "psycho" neighbors living next door to the protagonist, Ray Peterson, is very amusing! There is so much comedy and excitement in this film, and that is what makes you like it so much! You love the relationship between Ray Peterson, Mark Rumsfiled, and Art Weingartner. Each of them make witty comments about these strange Klopeks'. The Burbs' is one of my favorite movies! It's so 80's! You have to see it!
