The Joneses

They're not just living the American dream, they're selling it.


The Joneses
A sly look at commercial marketing and the sheeple that support our modern lifestyles. Meet the Joneses, by all appearances a modern, hip, successful family with the latest and greatest of everything. The neighbours just can't keep up. However, all is not as it seems ... they not a family, they're marketers, doing viral marketing for their corporate sponsors. When dad starts to develop a conscience about what they are doing, and teenage hormones get out of control, things could come crashing down ...

Tomatometer quote iconIt doesn't pursue its subversive premise as far as it should, but The Joneses benefits from its timely satire of consumer culture -- as well as a pair of strong performances from David Duchovny and Demi Moore.
