Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016)
Critic Consensus: Keeping Up with the Joneses squanders a decent premise -- and a talented cast full of funny people -- on a witless and largely laugh-free suburban spy adventure.

Critic Reviews for Keeping Up With The Joneses
Viewers who can't get enough of Galifianakis or Hamm will enjoy seeing the two spar onscreen, delivering in spades the unexpected phrasing and smoldering smirks each actor does so well.
The script sets up the action part of the movie with an interminably laborious and close-fitting literalness that hardly lets any of the actors breathe.
Structured with the kind of obviousness that makes you outwit the screenwriter and then hate movies in general, Greg Mottola's painfully generic suburban spy comedy wastes everybody's time, onscreen and off.
A wildly inconsequential action-comedy that contains a couple of genuine laughs but which otherwise feels like an extended version of its own television ads.
Audience Reviews for Keeping Up With The Joneses
I think the disappointing part of this film is the poor effort by the filmmaker who has crafted great previous films. The story was there for the making, the cast are very talented and you only had to look at the talented director to suspect a slam dunk. The film is a giant mess of actors either attempting to create humour or the humour wasn't there to begin with. This is your typical mid range studio misfire and you can feel this needed to be a r rating to actually be funny. I don't know who this film was marketed to but it missed on all fronts, I'm assuming the actors were well paid as nothing seems worthwhile. I like Hamm, Gadot and Fisher but I couldn't like this film at all, they were wasted with only a few very mild laughs along the way. There are better comedies out there so I would avoid this unfunny studio offering. 27-06-2017.
Cliché and formulaic, Keeping Up With the Joneses is a fairly generic action-comedy. The story follows a suburban couple that grows suspicious of their new neighbors and discover that they're CIA spies on a cover mission. Starring Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm, and Gal Gadot, the film has a pretty solid cast. But the comedy is bland and stereotypical. And the action scenes aren't very exciting, and feel rote. It isn't that Keeping Up With the Jones is a bad film, it's just so by-the-numbers that it has no flavor to it.
Amusing enough way to kill an hour and a half. Extremely predictable, though. Isla is always funny in this type of thing.
