Episode 3: The Burbs

Acting Out with Ryan and Mitchell

May 3 2022 • 1 hr 19 mins

Something strange is going on in this neighborhood! On this week’s episode of Acting Out, Ryan and Mitchell head into The Burbs for their Tom Hanks series. One of Hanks’ left-field swings, The Burbs was a flop on release but has garnered a cult following in recent years and it’s easy to see why. We discuss the film’s many alternate endings, the tall drink of water that is Bruce Dern, how Joe Dante turns a mirror on xenophobic suburban horror, and whether our hosts have ever had an anchovy.
