Rather than phoning the cops, Ducommon who lives on the other side of Hanks' property ropes Hanks, Feldman and Dern into spying on the strange new neighbours using strange 'suburban legends' of murder and wierdos as a catalyst for their already growing paranoia.
Hanks delivers his manic speech about normal suburban folks being the real threat to harmony, but even if the film ended on that note, it still would not have worked completely because, let's face it - that's a bit heavy for a film like this.
