Greener Grass

Greener Grass

Dark comedy set in the US suburbs, where two soccer mums (writers, directors, and stars Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe) compete with each other for validation in increasingly absurd circumstances.

"Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe confirm their gift for outrageous absurdity in this impressive debut dark comedy full of unsettling behaviour. Brimming with a talented cast of comedic favourites including Beck Bennett (Saturday Night Live), D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place), and Sundance alumna Janicza Bravo, Greener Grass fully commits to a demented version of suburbia as DeBoer and Luebbe scrutinize the willingness to endure extreme discomfort in exchange for conformity."

While it has solid character jokes and goofiness, the movie becomes inert by its end.

Doesn't quite sustain high-pitch hilarity for its entire 102 minutes, but at its best it's still pretty freaking funny.

"Greener Grass" won't exactly make you envious of the over-idealised lifestyle it skewers, and yet it's such a delightful place to inhabit, you won't want to leave when the credits roll.
