Our Score
If keeping up with these Joneses sounds like something you've done before, it's probably because you have. Its plot, about neighbours that aren't what they seem, has played out in more films than you can shake a stick at. That said, and after a slow start, this latest take on such a familiar film scenario is kind of fun, though the material isn't always up to its calibre of cast. Isla Fisher and Zach Galifianakis play dully ordinary suburbanites; Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) and Jon Hamm the sexy, stylish couple who move in next door. When the new neighbours prove adept at such non-suburban skills as bugging houses and handling high-speed car chases, suspicions are aroused. Patton Oswalt makes a scene-stealing late appearance in an action comedy that's no life changer, but doesn't outstay its welcome, either.

Summary

A suburban couple become embroiled in an international espionage plot when they discover that their seemingly perfect new neighbours are actually government spies. Action comedy, starring Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot.
