Perfect couple Steve and Kate Jones, and their gorgeous teen-aged children Jenn and Mick, are the envy of their posh, suburban neighborhood filled with McMansions and all the trappings of the upper middle class. Kate is the ultimate trend setter – beautiful, sexy, dressed head-to-toe in designer labels. Steve is the admired successful businessman who has it all: a gorgeous wife, big house and an endless supply of high-tech toys. Jenn and Mick rule their new school as they embody all that is hip and trendy – cool clothes, fast cars and the latest gadgets. But as the neighbors try to keep up with the Joneses, none are prepared for the truth about this all- too perfect family.
Plot: A seemingly perfect family moves into a suburban neighborhood, but when it comes to the truth as to why they’re living there, they don’t exactly come clean with their neighbors.

A clever comedy that gets you thinking
Before I saw this film, I really didn’t know what to expect, but then as I started watching, it really delivered. David Duchovny and Demi Moore are fantastic as Kate and Steve Jones, the seemingly perfect couple in the ridiculously perfect neighborhood. I especially liked the way in which the director, Derrick Borte, conveyed a feeling to the audience that something just isn’t quite right with this family. This movie really makes you think about what you buy and why exactly you buy it. It was highly entertaining and also had an important and rather satirical message about American consumerism and the art of “keeping up with the Joneses.”
Moral of the story: Nobody’s perfect…duh..Pitfalls of over-consumption….Yea I got it.
Specifically nobody’s family is perfect. But did we really need ninety-five minutes of absolute nothing to tell us this? Probably not, but it might have been excusable if it was actually done with some substance or style. Both of which are lacking in the Joneses. The Jones’ family is not truly a family at all. They are a professional sales “unit” whose job it is to influence the demographics buying habits within the neighborhood their employer set them up in. There’s a mother and father, a teenage son and daughter, but no dog. That seemed unusual to me considering what their employer was going for, but hey it didn’t really matter. In fact, nothing in the movie really matters because you can never get a feel for the characters. No real interest in their situation or their feelings is established. So when problems do arise out of this make-believe reality (yes I know that’s a contradiction), you’re not affected one way or the other. Apathy is probably the worst that can happen when watching a film, and The Joneses succeeds admirably.
Without a sense of who the characters are, where they came from, their motivations, it’s impossible to be involved in the unfolding of the plot. At about 50 minutes in I gave up hope of it kicking into gear and finished it only because I don’t like to leave things incomplete. Maybe the writers should be more like me. This film seems underdeveloped to say the least. However Demi Moore does look absolutely fantastic even after all these years, so I guess that’s one bright spot in all this.
Still, unless you plan on ogling Moore’s profile for the entire hour and half, just skip it. Even if you do see it, you’ll forget all about it the second the credits roll.
