Keeping Up With the Joneses

Hey, the new people next door are spies! Funny!

Oh dear. Time again for suffering through that movie — you know, the one with the overplayed, worn-out premise that you hope might be salvaged by a good cast and a director, Greg Mottola, you recall from better-than-average genre efforts, like Adventureland. Here comes a nice-but-bland suburban couple (Zack Galifianakis, Isla Fisher) who discover that their new neighbors (Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot) are spies. And sad to say, there are few laughs — everybody’s charms are hemmed in by one lame and wholly predictable set-up after another. No need to keep up with this one.
