Hypnotically bizarre, Greener Grass is Pleasantville bent at the angle of a sports injury you almost can't bear to watch.

DeBoer and Luebbe's pitch-perfect script hammers these messages with striking, original vision, creating a film that is truly exceptional.
February 11, 2020 feels overlong, purposeless, and designed to make you squirm in your seat.

While the on-the-nose social commentary never wavers and not everything works, there is a wonderful commitment to making a comedy unlike any other you'll see this or any other year.

This is some stunningly stilted comedy . . . and while it doesn't come close to warranting its 101-minute runtime, the attention to detail here is too strong to dismiss.

Happiness is but a trick of evil. We take. We squander. And we forget our pain just long enough to suffer through it all again.

Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe solidify themselves as reigning queens of satire.

Greener Grass is full of dark, delicious weirdness. Don't look too hard for deeper meaning.

Though our world has become a rather strange place it is in no way as bizarro as directors Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe short film Greener Grass.
November 23, 2019
Greener Grass is strange in the best way, and that's just what I look for in a comedy. Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe created a wonderfully surreal comedy that perfectly captures the absurdity of suburbia.

[Greener Grass] might have been funny on paper, but it dosn't work on the screen and even ends up being irritating. [Full review in Spanish]

A hypnotic watch, yet hard to pin down.
November 19, 2019
Greener Grass ridicules a very American way of suburban life and social interaction that perhaps doesn't have as much visceral relevance in this country: the idea is stretched thinly, it's a laugh but the fun palls over a feature length film.

It might feel a little rough round the edges but, for a first feature, makes for quite the introduction; like the backstabbers in their sights, this pair are clearly ones to watch.
November 16, 2019
It's clear [Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe], who cut their teeth doing improv before making movies, have the chops to sustain this high-wire act, because most of the gags land.
November 9, 2019
I can see what the filmmakers are aiming for, but suburban life seems too easy a target, and the surreal comedy too broad to deliver the desired impact.
November 4, 2019
If you possess an appreciation for the absurd, there are big laughs throughout this wonderfully oddball enterprise.
November 1, 2019
This absurdist romp offers sumptuous set design, a dedicated cast and very few laughs.

Jill is the ostensible protagonist because she has something resembling an emotional arc, yet she's so often a part of the random weirdness that it's difficult to identify with her.
October 31, 2019
A satirical send-up of suburban life that feels like it would be right at home airing in the late-night hours of Adult Swim, Greener Grass is an absurdly offbeat examination of the American Dream.
