This movie deserves more…
After I saw a preview at a local theater for this movie, I got interested because of David Duchovny. I really liked his acting in Californication and was interested how he would act in a standard comedy/drama film, or so it would seem from the preview I saw. Because this movie is much more then a standard comedy/drama film. It deals with much more moral questions about life. I won’t give much away, because you really have to go into this film not knowing anything, as I did. The acting was just good, with only Duchovny excelling. Once you understand what’s going on in the movie, the script is a bit predictable, but not so much as that it would ruin the movie for you. Also, I don’t understand why this movie isn’t much bigger. It’s made hardly any money and no one’s heard about it, yet it’s a film that stands out and should get more attention.
I went into this movie because I’m a fan of Duchovny and was expecting a mediocre film, but it turned out to be so much more.
Go see this film, you won’t be disappointed.
Consumerism on the screen
I watched this movie on the note from a friend, who kept insisting that I just had to watch it, because it was such a cool movie. So I caved in and sat down to watch the movie, without having any clue what it was all about.
Now, I must say that I think it was a bold topic to make a movie about, but it actually worked out quite well. I am not much fan of movies that are raising debate about social issues, but this movie actually turned out to be interesting and alright.
The cast in the movie was phenomenal. David Duchovny, playing Steve Jones, and Demi Moore, playing Kate Jones, were really great opposite one another, and they had really good screen chemistry. Amber Heard, playing Jenn Jones, and Ben Hollingsworth in the role of Mich Jones, also put on good performances. But I think Gary Cole, in the role of Larry Symonds, was actually one of the better guys in the movie, he played his role quite well.
The story told in “The Joneses” about our consumerist society was somewhat interesting, and it manages to keep you riveted to the chair, wanting to see what happens next in the movie. But was it really one that was necessary being told? I found the movie to be adequate entertainment, but it didn’t really raise any issues about consumerism after having seen it. Maybe because I just take a movie for what it is, a movie – a means of entertainment.
I noticed the movie was labeled as a comedy, which I would disagree with. Drama, yes, but comedy, no. At least not in the sense that it will make you laughing and rolling on the floor. Sure there were moments that were funny and somewhat outrageous, but as a comedy it just didn’t do the trick for me.
“The Joneses”, for me, is the type of movie that you watch it once, then bag it and tag it, never to see it again. To me, the story didn’t have enough value for a second viewing.
