Writers, directors, and stars Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe confirm their penchant for outrageous absurdity in this dark debut comedy, a perkily unsettling satire of upward mobility and political correctness gone all wrong. On a whim, Jill gives her baby to her neighbour, Lisa. When Jill’s other child turns into a dog after falling into their pool, she wants her baby back, but Lisa refuses. And just who murdered the local yoga teacher that has been stalking them for weeks? Welcome to the braces-wearing, golf-cart driving, pastel coloured insanity of a suburbia that could only exist in a subdivision of hell. Eschewing all decorum and boundaries, Greener Grass mercilessly shreds all the institutions western society holds dear. Played with deadpan brilliance by its awesome cast, including Beck Bennett (Saturday Night Live), D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place), and Janicza Bravo (Lemon), this deranged lovechild of John Waters and Tim & Eric grows more inappropriate, unhinged, and surreal by the frame.
