The Joneses

3

Everyone wants to be The Joneses...

Everyone wants to be The Joneses: Mom (Demi Moore) is a bling-sporting MILF, Dad’s (David Duchovny) a golf ace rocking designer duds, the kids (Amber Heard, Ben Hollingsworth) rule school with the latest gadgets.

But they’re all fakes, a new generation of marketing aimed at selling a lifestyle to their neighbours.

An intriguing idea is reduced to a toothless critique of consumerism that ends up doing exactly what it tries to satirise, peddling products in a glossy environment.

Still, Duchovny and Moore deploy decent tension while Gary Cole brings pathos as their neighbour.
