Gal Gadot Jon Hamm Keeping Up Joneses trailer

Just to get it out of the way right up front, I saw Zach Galifianakis listed in the credits, and was looking for him -- not realizing I was seeing him. Zach's really gotten into shape -- good on you, Zach Galifianakis!

Now on to the trailer:

Galifianakis and Isla Fisher (NOW YOU SEE ME) play a typical suburban family who become suspicious of their new neighbors when they find them to be "impossibly gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated." The Joneses -- Jon Hamm (MAD MEN) and Gal Gadot (WONDER WOMAN) -- do end up being more than they seem. They're covert agents, and their lives are more adventurous and upscale than James Bond's.

Director Greg Mottolo (SUPERBAD) seems to be delivering a funny, sexy, comedy-thriller. The setup is good, there's a working chemistry between the actors, and the situations are humorous. Hamm's worldliness contrasts well with Zach's "regular guy" personality, and Gadot's cool allure actually compliments Fisher's girl-next-door attractiveness, rather than overpowering it. This one's going on my watch list.

KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES is in theaters October 21, 2016.

Grade: 
4.5 / 5.0
