Trivia

Greg Mottola, the movie's director, credits stunt coordinator and 2nd unit director Steven Ritzi with staging the action for maximum impact and thrills. But he and the cast give a special shout-out to actor Jon Hamm, who did much of the driving himself. "Jon did some really great donuts [elaborate car maneuvers] in the Mercedes we were all jammed into," said co-star Gal Gadot. Hamm is modest about his contributions to the scene, noting that to prepare for it, he "drove around an empty parking lot for hours to get used to the car and its moves". Hamm added: "Having that extra time behind the wheel really helped me improve. The key was to not to just make it fun, but to also make it safe. Steven Ritzi made that happen for all of us."

Quotes

Natalie Jones: How could you not tell me you were feeling this way?
Tim Jones: Well, look... to be honest, you are not exactly the easiest woman in the world for a man to admit his fears to.
Natalie Jones: [stunned and angry] What? How can you say that to me? I'm compassionate and sensitive. You can say anything to me.
Natalie Jones: [in Hebrew] Tafsik lihiot kaze nekeva kol hazman!
[= stop acting like a pussy all the time!]
Tim Jones: Well, calling me a pussy in Hebrew is not helping things.

Funny and far out plot and it's a sexy tease.
26 October 2016 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

"Keeping Up with the Joneses" is one fun and funny feel comedy drama that seems a little unreal still it entertains! Set in Atlanta, Georgia in an area that's nice a suburban couple Jeff(Zach Galifianakis)and Karen(Isla Fisher)seem to have the perfect life then all of a sudden their life is turned upside down by a new couple who move in next door named Tim Jones(Jon Hamm)and Natalie(Gal Gadot). Soon strange things start to happen and it's seems odd, but soon it appears that an international spy plot might be going on! Aside from that this film is funny and full of good one liners and sexy scenes especially the one of Gal Gadot in the try on room with all of those sexy colored bras, and Tim and Natalie even tie up and duct tape the mouth's of Karen and Jeff's neighbors. Really a wild and crazy type of a film, probably not everyone's cup of tea still it's worth a watch due to it's laughs and sexy scenes a tease with two beautiful ladies in Gal Gadot and Isla Fisher, so if your looking for a carefree feel good time then give this movie a watch.
