Keeping up with the Joneses
An ordinary suburban couple (Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher) discover it’s not easy keeping up with their impossibly gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated new neighbors, the Joneses (Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot) – especially when they discover that Mr and Mrs “Jones” are really covert operatives.
For the first time in 11 years, Jeff and Karen Gaffney find themselves facing a challenge that all parents eventually face: the empty next. With their kids away for the first time at summer camp, the Gaffneys hope to spend some quality alone-time and reignite the romantic fire that has started to flicker. This proves easier said than done when Karen’s imagination is distracted by the sudden arrival of new neighbors on the cul-de-sac: The Joneses, whose stunning looks are only matched by the worldly sophistication of their lives. Tim Jones is an accomplished travel writer whose hob- bies include blowing his own glass sculptures, and his wife Na- talie is social media consultant, cooking blogger, and heroine to the plight of Sri Lankan orphans. As Karen asks, “Why would people this attractive and accomplished ever want to live here?”
Despite Karen’s initial misgivings, Jeff sees in Tim the coolest best friend he could only dream of having – while Karen, too, is soon seduced in Natalie’s glamorous and sexy approach to suburban life. But as soon as the friendship seems to be cemented, The Gaffneys find themselves in the center of a storm of international espionage that will give them a breathtaking glimpse of life “outside the cul de sac” — and will show both couples what “being a good neighbor” really means.
