As always, the art and animation is absolutely stunning, and the cultural slice presented as the film's backdrop is intriguing for the length of the film. The sense of humor is also charming and witty, and the love story presented is well developed and crafted through wonderful cinematography and character development.

The characters were enjoyable and the juxtaposation of the audio-book and the situations happening on the screen helped bring a third dimension to the story. The film has it's glitches and problems (such as a 37 year old being so easily manipulated by an 18 year old.) but it makes up with the connection you have with the lead character. This is my first polish brothers film and it makes me want to look into their films more so Mike & Michael, you got a new fan. P.S.- Wynona Ryder, hottest actress EVER!!!

Andy C (ag) wrote: A tier 2 genre entry that rips off every other scifi classic from the late 70's to the mid 80's. A campy sense of fun with atrocious dialogue and a hokey sea monster.
Jonny P (ca) wrote: "The 'Burbs" is a late-80's horror comedy whose stars are a bit larger than its script. The story is simple and familiar: a new neighbor draws suspicion with unexplained nighttime activity and the rest of the neighborhood bands together to find some answers. The film is good for what it is but when you bless it with star power like Tom Hanks, Carrie Fisher, and Bruce Dern, the expectation grows too large. Add in Corey Feldman at the height of his career and this film goes from amusing comedy to must-see Hollywood blockbuster. Expectation aside, the film delivers some good laughs. Everything is over the top and the pairing of physical comedy with clever dialogue keeps the film moving. The Klopeks are well-written and the story has a perfect conclusion. "The 'Burbs" is a quirky comedy with memorable characters and an amusing script, but its inability to rise to the level of its cast will likely leave you disappointed.
