The 'Burbs (PG)
The Money Pit is a 1986 American comedy-drama film directed by Richard Benjamin and starring Tom Hanks and Shelley Long as a couple who attempt to renovate a recently purchased house. It was filmed in New York City and Lattingtown, New York, and was co-executive produced by Steven Spielberg. The film is a remake of Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, a 1948 Cary Grant comedy.
The 'Burbs is a 1989 American dark comedy film directed by Joe Dante, and starring Tom Hanks, Bruce Dern, Carrie Fisher, Rick Ducommun, Corey Feldman, Wendy Schaal and Henry Gibson and Gale Gordon. The film was written by Dana Olsen, who made her cameo appearance in the film. It pokes fun at suburban environments and their sometimes eccentric dwellers.
Dragnet is a 1987 American buddy cop comedy film, directed and co-written by Tom Mankiewicz in his directorial debut. Starring Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks, the film is based on the radio and television crime drama of the same name. The screenplay, both a parody of and homage to the long-running television series, was written by Aykroyd, Mankiewicz, and Alan Zweibel. The original music score is by Ira Newborn.
Aykroyd plays Joe Friday (nephew of the original series protagonist) while Hanks plays Pep Streebek, his new partner. Harry Morgan reprises his role from the television series as Bill Gannon, now a captain and Friday and Streebek's boss.
