Keeping Up with the Joneses

KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES

Keeping Up with the Joneses is a pat and predictable mainstream action-comedy. It stars Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot as secret agents who go undercover in suburbia, and who, for tactical reasons, befriend a nerdy HR worker (Zach Galifianakis) and his wife (Isla Fisher). One comedically remarkable scene is set at a neighborhood barbecue, at which Hamm and Gadot’s characters are ogled and fecklessly one-upped by their ordinary neighbors. There’s also toilet humor, a Sarah Palin joke, and a bromance. And, when the action sets off, no one sweats the collateral damage, which is inadvertently funny. Ha Ha.
