The Burbs

The Burbs (1989)

Ending / spoiler

(5 votes)

The Klopeks didn't kill Walter... they killed the former owners of the house they're living in: The Napps; that explains all those bones in the trunk of the Klopeks' car. Werner Klopek tries to kill Ray (as he's being driven away in an ambulance) but is unsuccessful. The Klopeks are arrested. Art's wife returns. Ray goes home with his wife and it's time to relax and enjoy his vacation.

Other mistake: When Tom Hanks is walking down the stairs a chainsaw comes through the wall. If you look at the wall a second earlier you can see a line where the chainsaw is supposed to come through.

Question: How did Ray survive the explosion at the end?

Answer: It's unlikely he could have survived in real life, or if he did, he'd be far more injured and/or permanently maimed, but this is a comedy movie, and reality is often ignored.
