Set in an average neighbourhood that is anything but average, Tom Hanks portrays suburbanite Ray Peterson, who finally takes a much-needed week of vacation. However, Ray doesn't use the time to jet off to some exotic locale, there are no frolicsome adventures in his plans, all he wants is a week of mindless relaxation in his own comfortable suburban home. His wife Carol (Carrie Fisher) warns him that he's liable to go crazy from the boredom, but he refuses to listen. The nothingness finally does get to him, however, and he creates a little excitement for himself by spying on his neighbours - the Klopeks, a mysterious, oddball family that just moved in to a dilapidated home down the street. When the neighbourhood grouch mysteriously disappears, Ray and a motley crew of other local crackpots begin to concoct wild theories about the strange, and perhaps murderous, goings on in the Klopek's creepy, old house. For one brief, shining moment their lives seem to have some meaning and purpose as Ray and his friends become consumed with the secrets of the bizarre family. Tom Hanks is hysterical as Ray, bringing his own brand of boyish charm and zany slapstick comedy to the screen.

Ray, there's no doubt anymore. This is real. Our neighbors are murdering people. They're chopping them up. They're burying them in their backyard. Ray... This is Walter - AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH.
