a breeze in the garish suburbs
8 March 2020 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

I never expected any movie to be this blatantly weird, but here it is. This black comedy from Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe (neither of whom I had ever heard of before now) shows all sorts of tensions arising in a gaudy suburban neighborhood. And by gaudy I mean that their clothes are an assault on the senses. There's bound to be something that'll go awry.

Whether you interpret "Greener Grass" as a parody of suburban gothic (the genre that includes "The Ice Storm" and "American Beauty") or a straightforward, unabashedly bizarre comedy, it's one to enjoy. I'm surprised that they were able to get funding, given the oddball, less-than-profitable nature of the story.

The only cast members whom I recognized were SNL cast members Beck Bennett and John Milhiser, as well as D'Arcy Carden (Janet on "The Good Place").
