Trailer for Keeping Up with the Joneses, starring Isla Fisher, Gal Gadot, Jon Hamm and Zach Galifianakis.
An ordinary suburban couple (Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher) finds it’s not easy keeping up with the Joneses (Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot) – their impossibly gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated new neighbors – especially when they discover that Mr. and Mrs. “Jones” are covert operatives.This was pushed back for unknown reasons. Originally set for a April 20, 2016 release, 20th Century Fox couldn’t even get a trailer fabricated until June.
It’s impossible to ignore, but Zach Galifianakis had lost a lot of weight for this role.
Can somebody say ? Sure, the Keeping Up with the Joneses trailer pitches something a little different, but not that much different. We once again have a very attractive couple — Gal Gadot in lingerie, hot damn — who play as your typical neighborhood couple while also living a dual life as spies. This time around, however, we see the spy couple from the perspective of an outsider couple, which is refreshing.
Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher are no strangers to comedy, and they perform as expected. Though I was initially taken back by Galifianakis’s new look, it definitely hasn’t effected his ability to deliver the lines and remain silly.
Jon Hamm impressed me most with, wait for it, . After seeing the serious him for years in Mad Men, he turned out being one of the funniest side plots of that comedy ensemble. And, once again, the actor seems entirely comfortable at having fun in a comedy. Gadot is a bit untested, and she seems to have been cast to be the more serious character… but with an insane body. Have I mentioned that?
While we’re not sure the reason for the theatrical delay, Keeping Up with the Joneses looks worthy of a visit to your local theaters come October.
