EW's GRADE
C+

Details Release Date: Apr 16, 2010; Rated: R; Length: 95 Minutes; Genre: Comedy; With: David Duchovny and Demi Moore; Distributor: Roadside Attractions

The conceit of the unsubtle anti-consumerist satire The Joneses is fun until the plot turns maudlin: With all their fancy stuff, the Joneses are the family their striving neighbors want to keep up with. That's good for the Joneses; they're stealth marketers. David Duchovny and Demi Moore are well accessorized as display-model husband and wife. But this cautionary tale might be easier to swallow if all that stuff didn't look like it came from a Sky Mall catalog. C+
