Suburbicon | Ratings & Reviews

"Suburbicon is not only unfunny, a bad sign for a black comedy, but deep-dyed dislikable."

Wall Street JournalWall Street Journal

"This startling misfire is a tonal disaster from start to finish..."

"A movie that flits between genres and ideas without ever settling on one coherent, guiding principle."


"Two incompatible movies - one archly cynical, the other painfully sincere - wedged uncomfortably together."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"A feature-length tweet."


"A surprisingly tone-deaf combination of two wildly different stories that simply don't work in concert."

New York PostNew York Post

"It makes a run at cleverness, trying to be a dark screwball commentary on America's race problem. But instead it's just a spectacular flop."


"Both wildly entertaining in its own macabre, violent fashion and also very perceptive about racism and hypocrisy in middle-class white America."


"I frankly don't know why Suburbicon happened. I do know that pulpy black comedy combined with a straight-ahead story of racism translates into sanctimonious pulp."


"It’s a movie that reels the audience in and keeps it hooked: with smart little kicks of surprise."


"Director George Clooney raids a leftover script by the Coen brothers that lacks the snap of their more vicious crime comedies."

Time OutTime Out

"It’s a hectic, sour and muddled film – a flailing counterfeit of satire that keeps slipping on its own banana skin supply, and never remotely gets to grips with what it thinks it’s sending up."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"Suburbicon is too lightweight and mannered; it lacks proper fury. Watching it is like having your trouser-leg savaged by an energetic small dog."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Just too obvious in its satirical depiction of the dubious morality and social inequality behind the squeaky-clean façade of postwar American life, though it's watchable enough..."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"...despite evoking the period through great design work, the film just doesn't live up to the sum of its parts."
