AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Greener Grass is far from the first comedy to skewer suburbia -- but it might be among the most bizarre and surreally distinctive.

Movie Info

In a day-glo-colored, bizarro version of suburbia where adults wear braces on their already-straight teeth, everyone drives golf carts, and children magically turn into golden retrievers, soccer moms and best friends Jill (Jocelyn DeBoer) and Lisa (Dawn Luebbe) are locked in a passive aggressive battle-of-the-wills that takes a turn into the sinister when Lisa begins systematically taking over every aspect of Jill's life--starting with her newborn daughter. Meanwhile, a psycho yoga teacher killer is on the loose, Jill's husband (Beck Bennett) has developed a curious taste for pool water, and Lisa is pregnant with a soccer ball. That's just the tip of the gloriously weird iceberg that is the feature debut from writers-directors Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe, a hilariously demented, Stepford Wives-on-acid satire destined to be an instant cult classic.

A hypnotic watch, yet hard to pin down.

Greener Grass feels sometimes episodic, but it can be an incredibly entertaining romp through the picket fence yards of an America that only exists in our collective unconscious.

October 24, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The warped and idiosyncratic passions, animosities, materialistic desires, mating habits, and social dynamics of suburbia (where everyone only drives golf carts) are on full display in Greener Grass...

This movie is nuts and I totally dug it... It is candy-colored, it is weird, and it is out there. I laughed the whole way through.

Like all good satires, Greener Grass trucks in exaggeration.
