  1. The Burbs is very good and yes, Tom Hanks was wonderful in it. If it is not my all-time favorite Tom Hanks comedy, then it undoubtedly ranks somewhere in the top 5 at least. Great support also from Bruce Dern and the late Carrie Fisher (died in 2016) and Henry Gibson (died in 2009). Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
