The Joneses Reviews

Page 2 of 7

An intriguing and timely satire about the increasingly insidious ways consumer culture tries to keep us spending even when we can't afford it.

Allan Hunter
Daily Express

A breezy satire on consumerism that takes a smart idea and develops it into an entertaining morality tale.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

A critique on consumerism comes off like a vehicle for product placement

Susan Granger
SSG Syndicate

It's a brilliant premise but wretchedly executed, as product placement becomes more important than the sly inherent satire of consumer conformity.

Playback:stl

You could probably find similar suburban developments, and similar people living in them, in most if not all U.S. states and that jibes perfectly with the spirit of this film.

Guardian

Here is a smart, entertaining satire on greed and materialism among America's leisured classes.

Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail [UK]

Any anti-materialistic movie from Hollywood - spiritual home of furtive product placement and dodgy role-models - deserves commendation for at least pretending to have its heart in the right place.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

It's not a bad idea, but just as you think you're watching a biting consumer satire, the plot instead descends into melodrama and soap operatics.

Laura Bushell
Little White Lies

The Joneses never makes it into full on satire but is smart and clear enough in its setup not to have to spell out a message in some soapy conclusion.

Catherine Jones
Liverpool Echo

Moore looks fabulous in a role that plays to her strengths as a feisty, independent woman, and she generates on-screen heat with Duchovny to make the conventional happy ending easier to swallow.

Interesting if not entirely successful.

Director Borte doesn't press the dumb-laugh button hard enough.

Sukhdev Sandhu
Daily Telegraph

Borte's conceit is a fun one to be in on, but basically too synthetic to have the satirical bite it wants -- it's more a playful fantasy of consumerist whim than an edgy exposé.

Helen OHara
Empire Magazine

A meta-satire that doesn't quite come off.

Graham Young
Birmingham Post

Ordinarily, I wouldn't have crossed the road to see Moore and Duchovny together, but their relationship works both before and after the film's outragous left-field twist.

Digital Spy

Making good use of its excellent premise, this flawed gem deserves to find an audience.

News of the World

The film doesn't just have its cake and eat it. It makes you want to upgrade that cake to a chic Ladurée macaroon.

Radio Times

A seamless debut feature for Derrick Borte as writer, director and producer.

Anna Pollitt
Sky Movies

Moore and Duchovny's on-screen connection is sizzling and both stars excel in unravelling their hard-bitten characters' fragility.

Tolucan Times

A good idea and good acting are ruined by a craven Hollywood Ending.
