A spy adventure that despite being powered by an impressive, talented cast, is disappointingly dull and devoid of any significant laughs.
February 14, 2019
[Keeping Up with the Joneses] is an uneven movie that relies too heavily on its dynamic cast to its considerable detriment.
February 1, 2019
Overall, the film just feels like the writers and crew just gave up.

I am not sure why people still think Zach Galifianakis is funny...

...an espionage action-comedy that meanders in its broad banality...is enough reason to have Keeping Up with the Joneses classified as an aborted mission to a lesser degree.
November 1, 2018
This is a comedy that's in desperate need of its own identity and Mottola can't find that identity even with the spirited performance of Galifianakis.

There's nothing remotely charming about "Keeping Up with the Joneses," no moment that'll make all the bad ones feel less so. It's flat, dull, and ridiculous.
August 21, 2018
The dialogue feels clunky and forced, like you're watching an hour and a half long improv set where nobody really knows where the script is going and everyone's just rolling with it.
May 9, 2018
All in all, this movie is just sort of nothing. It's not going to make you angry that it exists, but it's not gonna make you happy either. It simply occupies space and time, but leaves no real effect on you.

With such a decent cast, the film does have its comic moments but the material seems stretched, the budget limited and the end result quickly forgettable.
August 21, 2017
Keeping Up with the Joneses is not a good movie-it's dumb, boring, and predictable-but it's stacked with an excellent cast, dozens of chuckles, and a handful of legitimately brilliant LOLs.

Instantly forgettable.
December 9, 2016
Despite being directed by Gregg Mottola (Superbad, Paul), the comic scenes play out with often banal interplay that barely has a whiff of improvised mayhem, while the action sequences are essentially generic.
December 5, 2016
Without a fresh approach, the film settles for product placement and the pedestrian, perhaps under the delusion that pedestrian is an equivalent for tried and true. It isn't.
December 3, 2016
It's the "see what sticks" type of mainstream movie-making, predicated upon little more than throwing obvious elements together.
November 29, 2016
The only redeemable thing about this film, is the performance of its cast. However, the material simply isn't worthy of their efforts. [Full review in Spanish]
November 29, 2016
The jokes and situations are toothless, gumming on the same old comedy gruel you've seen before.
November 14, 2016
Watching Fisher losing her composure is funny, but the material does no favors for Galifianakis.
November 11, 2016
...everything in Keeping Up With the Joneses is pretty, but that's just about all it is.
November 7, 2016
Relentlessly bland and devoid of laughs...
