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
Amusing enough way to kill an hour and a half. Extremely predictable, though. Isla is always funny in this type of thing.
Thank goodness for Isla Fisher or this time waster would've been insufferable. She was even more interesting playing knocked out than anything else going on. Groan-worthy scripting. Did I mention Isla Fisher yet?
Too many times, we get comedies like Keeping Up With the Jonses where the trailer makes us groan and not laugh. All of the best gags in the film are shown in the trailer and there isn't many of them. The best scene in the film is a gag with Hamm, Galifianakis, and Bobby Lee in an underground extreme snake restaurant and that's in the first 15 minutes. Even watching Wonder Woman in lingerie isn't as satisfying as you thought it would be. The story is thin, the acting is tame, and the jokes are well...shite. One thing to the film's credit, it had a potential story to tell about the plague of married couples trying to find themselves in a boring quiet suburban life but can't even find a way to take advantage of the angles of their film that works. Keeping Up With the Jonses is simply not funny and not even worth a rental. You won't miss anything giving this film a pass.
