Post-World War II films set in suburbia that are reminiscent of the lightweight, suburban situation comedies
that would air on television in the mid-to late 20th century. The plot

something changes the normal routine. This is usually played for laughs. See also, "Suburban Drama." Coined by Java's Journey in September 2015.
