DeBoer and Luebbe's pitch-perfect script hammers these messages with striking, original vision, creating a film that is truly exceptional.

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.

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.

A hypnotic watch, yet hard to pin down.

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.

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.

If you possess an appreciation for the absurd, there are big laughs throughout this wonderfully oddball enterprise.

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.
October 24, 2019
An absurdist suburban satire, arch and surreal... Wears thin before it's over, but it made me laugh enough overall to recommend it.
October 24, 2019
Greener Grass feels sometimes episodic, but it can be an incredibly entertaining romp through the picket fence yards of an America that only exists in our collective unconscious.
October 22, 2019
It's a bravura piece of work.
October 21, 2019
The warped and idiosyncratic passions, animosities, materialistic desires, mating habits, and social dynamics of suburbia (where everyone only drives golf carts) are on full display in Greener Grass...

This movie is nuts and I totally dug it... It is candy-colored, it is weird, and it is out there. I laughed the whole way through.
October 21, 2019
Drenched in lurid pinks and blues, the film looks simply amazing, and actor-filmmakers Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe pack every moment with witty touches, astutely skewering a society that places value on surface over substance.
