Keeping Up with the Joneses 2016 [Review]
Keeping Up with the Joneses is a 2016 American action comedy film directed by Greg Mottola and written by Michael LeSieur.
Starring Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher and Gal Gadot, the film follows a suburban couple “the Gaffneys” lifestyle interrupted by the arrival of new neighbors, whose stunning looks are matched only by the worldly sophistication of their lives.
Tim Jones is an accomplished travel writer whose hobbies include blowing glass, and his wife, Natalie, is a social media consultant, cooking blogger and heroine to Sri Lankan orphans. The Gaffneys soon find themselves in the center of a storm of international espionage that gives them a breathtaking glimpse of life outside their cul-de-sac.
The movie starts in a kind of slow scenes that explains the story, and this type of feeling will persist for around 20 minutes, before the situation gets interesting.
The film is expected to gross $7–9 million from about 2,100 theaters in its opening weekend, with some estimates going as high as $12 million a week before its release, which softened to around $7 a couple days before the premiere.
