Editors Note
Note A picture-perfect family moves into an upscale community, impressing the locals and integrating themselves into every aspect of the community until a sudden tragedy forces them to reassess their priorities. Steve (David Duchovny) and Kate Jones (Demi Moore) have everything a happily married couple could ever want: their kids, Jenn (Amber Heard) and Mick (Ben Hollingsworth), are intelligent and attractive, they live in an affluent neighborhood, and their sprawling suburban home is jam-packed with all of the coolest gizmos and gadgets that money can buy. It isn't long before the Joneses have struck up a friendship with their next-door neighbors Larry (Gary Cole) and Summer (Glenne Headly), and become integral components of their community. But take a closer look at the situation and you'll start to see something ominous lurking just beneath the surface. It's only when the Joneses are confronted with an unexpected disaster that they finally discover who they really are beneath the glossy veneer of consumerism.

Review It's surprising enough these days that a movie starring David Duchovny and Demi Moore doesn't go straight to DVD. After all, they're not the box office draws they once were. What's really shocking, though, is that The Joneses turns out to be a smart little comedy that tosses some sharp little darts at our consumer-driven culture...Steve (Duchovny) and Kate (Moore) Jones are the new arrivals in a pristine suburban neighborhood, along with their teenage kids Mick (Ben Hollingsworth) and Jenn (Amber Heard, who can't seem to keep her clothes on for an entire movie). They've got all the latest gadgets, use all the best new products and aren't shy about sharing with their neighbors. Turns out they work for a guerrilla marketing firm, sent from town to town to masquerade as a real family and turn the locals on to all the expensive, unnecessary stuff on which the American economy is built...Steve, a rookie to the game, develops doubts about the ethics of their deceptions, especially after a neighbor (Gary Cole) gets himself into deep hock trying to keep up with the you-know-whos. Once it becomes clear where the story's headed, some fizz escapes from the film, but it's still a pretty spot-on satire of a practice that it's surprising hasn't been tried yet in real life. (Or maybe it has -- those Dell laptops the family uses to check in with corporate HQ look pretty nice. ...)

Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle The beauty of The Joneses is that the salesmen are as much the victims as the people they're deceiving.
Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel The Joneses manages a deft blend of the sexy, the sad and the silly.
