Re: The Burbs II - They're Back!,They're Back!


Oh maaaan, it is fun to think about all the possibilities for this one.

Possible cheesy title: The 'Burbs II: There Goes the Neighborhood!

In a perfect world I'm imagining this movie having come out in 1991; Joe Dante back at the helm.

Possible synopsis:

Ray and Carol have moved to a nice neighborhood in south Florida and find that now they are the newcomers in town. It seems like a perfectly peaceful, idyllic suburban paradise not far from the beach, but something is not quite right. As Ray and Carol attend barbecues and mingle with the neighbors they meet the big man on campus of the neighborhood Pete Slater, a local city councilman, his perfect wife Linda, their douchey preppy son Max, and Pete's brother in law Newton (played by Clint Howard). Newton is the odd duck in the bunch, a slimy weirdo who spends all his time working on strange contraptions in his cluttered dungeon-like basement bedroom, or slinking around the neighborhood looking highly suspicious.

Ray soon gets the intuition that something is not quite right with The Slater family.

After witnessing a series of bizarre incidents with the Slaters, Ray calls up Art, Rumsfeld, and Ricky who are still living the dream back at Mayfield Place. Ray informs them that he's "got a live one!" and the guys load up in Rumsfeld's RV and hit the road for Florida.

To add to the insanity during all this, Ray thinks his house is haunted; all kinds of bizarre and inexplicable things happening--power suddenly dying, bumps in the night. Turns out it's one of Newton's hyper-intelligent lab rats who has escaped and made his home in Ray's house.

After a series of bumbling and inept surveillance missions,, Ray begins to piece together that Councilman Slater has been offing all of his election competition (many of which live in their subdivision) and his ghoulish brother in law has been disposing of the bodies.

A wacky and chaotic final encounter with Pete Slater takes place on his yacht escaping the marina, headed for the Bahamas with Ray and the gang subduing the twisted, sociopathic Slater family via an epic "Citizen's Arrest"!

Required watching when preparing for a Burbs II movie where they move to a new neighborhood, one MUST watch the Richard Prior movie from 1988 Moving

You might even think Joe and a few others had seen this movie and might have been subconsciously lifting a few things....or not.

Oh man, this looks great. I need to see this, especially if it has a similar tone or scenes that influenced Dante! I'm always on the lookout for other good movies that take place in a weird or wacky suburban setting.

Well, there was no zoom in from outerspace, but it does start out with a Paperboy scene, delivering papers to the neighborhood. And my lord, Randy Quaid. I won't ever pass up a 80's Randy Quaid movie. Same goes for Bill Paxton.

When Randy catches up with the PaperBoy...... Something Ray would like to do but he left this balls in his wife's purse.
