When Tolstoy said all happy families are alike, he could not have envisioned the suburban characters in Greener Grass internalizing the quote to such psychotic levels of conformity, where wives accidentally french kiss their neighbours’ doppelganger husbands before they realize their honest (and hilarious) mistake. The co-writers/co-directors/co-stars, Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe craft a hilariously demented Stepford Wives-on-acid satire of modern suburbia.

Soccer moms and best friends Jill (Jocelyn DeBoer) and Lisa (Dawn Luebbe) are locked in a passive-aggressive battle-of-the-wills while a psycho yoga teacher killer is on the loose and Jill’s husband (Beck Bennett) has developed a curious taste for pool water. And that’s just the beginning. Its unique absurdist satire and celebration of weirdness is a breath of fresh air in a world full of remakes and reboots.

Greener Grass’ is a movie that’s not only immediately destined for cult status – it’s the rare movie that truly earns it. – Los Angeles Times
