Bathed in a strange glow as it captures people in moments of surreal epiphany, ‘Greener Grass’ distorts reality through a dreamlike lens. DeBoer and Luebbe have created a world of blunt allegories and social antagonisms, perverted by a unique style into a manic, nearly unclassifiable black comedy.

There’s a difference between true absurdism, and just doing random shit to be “quirky”, but apparently nobody told the people who made this movie that. Embarassingly unfocused film where every gag goes on far too long to be funny, but that’s OK as very few of them were every funny to begin with. The whole dog thing, Twilson, they’re like an SNL-friendly version of a Tim and Eric skit, but stretched out to an entire subplot of a feature film and with delusions of grandeur that they’re making some grand point about the dark underbelly of suburbia or whatever bollocks.
The jokes are all designed by committee to be giffed on Tumblr (“your mother is not a school!” stands out particularly as this), and the meandering narrative cull-de-sacs aren’t clever or avant-garde, they’re just a waste of runtime. Blue Velvet for Welcome to Night Vale fans.
The “grass” is not “greener” in this neighborhood or with this film
NY’s Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre Alum Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe stretch thier Short Film (of the same name) into a painful 1 hour and 41 minute feature film. While the Short may have been appealing (I didn’t see it), more is not better here! DeBoer and Luebbe write, direct and star here, proving once again newbies usually can’t wear multiple hats successfully. Trying to bring believability to a silly and farfetched comedy storyline, where cheap/not funny on-camera gags won’t end, are crazy woman Helen (wasting the craft of Dot-Marie Jones “Glee”) and side-kick husbands Nick (Beck Bennett “SNL”) and Dennis (Neil Casey “SNL). It’s downright hard to watch the cast try to make something out of nothing. DeBoer and Luebbe place thier story in an environment that is literary full of plastic plants, plastic non-emotional one level characters, and within scenes that are color saturated for reasons unknown and unnecessary, thus providing little to grab onto for substance, let alone humor. Call this satire, slapstick or purposeful raunch, I say the “grass” is not “greener” in this neighborhood or with this film.
