The first rule of being a spy is not to fall in love with your partner....

The Gaffneys' lives are interrupted by the arrival of new neighbours, whose stunning looks are matched only by the sophistication of their lives.

Tim Jones is an accomplished travel writer, and his wife, Natalie, is a social media consultant, cooking blogger and heroine to Sri Lankan orphans.

The Gaffneys soon find themselves in the centre of international espionage that gives them a glimpse of life outside their comfort zone.........

Keeping Up With The Joneses is one of those comedies that offers absolutely nothing new to the genre of comedy, and basically borrows from films that are a lot better than this, and funnily enough, a lot worse.

If this was made in the eighties, it would have starred Steve Martin and Shelly Long as the atypical suburban couple, and probably Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner as the titular couple, and it would have been an absolute smash, because it would have felt relatively fresh.

Jump forward thirty years, and with films like Mr & Mrs. Smith, Killers, Housesitter, and a never ending plethora of fish out of water comedies, it feels stale, well worn, and relies on the star power of the cast.

The thing is, Galfiniakas is way out of his comfort zone playing the Everyman, and Gal Gadot is incredibly wooden in her role. So much in fact, it's setting the alarm bells ringing for Wonder Woman.

So the couple get into scrapes, find a little excitement in their mundane lives, and just like True Lies, assist in the final 'hilarious' act when special guest star Patton Oswald makes his appearance as the end of game bad guy.

But it isn't a terrible film, there are a couple of amusing moments, and Fisher plays the jittery housewife with panache, but you can't see those two as a couple.

If you want a comedy that is safe, and offers nothing new, then you may get a few giggles out of it.

Otherwise, if you never see this movie, trust me, you've already seen it.

Not hard to keep up with, it's a very OK.

It's a pretty good comedy.

The average Suburban family gets a new neighbors, who are more than what they seem. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher made a cute couple in the movie. very good comedy duo in an mediocre film.

Jon Hamm is a fantastic straight man for the comedy that Galifianakis was dishing out.

Gal Gadot is impressive. She's the one who has to keep up with the other three and she does a good job. i don't think I've seen her do anything outside the Fast and Furious movies so it was nice to see that she can do something else.

I know i'm sitting here writing about the film, but for the most part there is really is not anything to write about. It gives you enough laughs so I feel like I did not waste my cash, but it's definitely not a movie you'll remember down the road. Nothing spectacular.

Not even funny.

I watched this at an advanced screening and didn't have to pay a dime but I feel like they should have given me a refund. A few people walked out during the first hour of the film, I wished I did. Basically, this film is like a made for LifeTime version of Mr & Mrs Smith, expect with a quarter of the action and absolutely none of the humor. All the jokes fall flat and there was literally only ONE TIME everyone in the theater laughed and it had nothing to do with the movie! There is a scene with Gal Gadot in her underwear (it is in the trailer) and someone in the audience yelled "the b#tch ain't got no a$$" and everyone started laughing. Seriously, this is the kind of movie that will just make you mad because of how predictable, pointless and boring it is. Zach Galifianakis is usually a pretty funny dude but his acting seemed lifeless and uninspired, in other words this was purely a paycheck gig for him. Poor Jon Hamm wasn't allowed to be funny in this movie. Isla Fisher looked bored half the time. Gal Gadot is as wooden as ever. All the minor characters are whatever. This movie isn't worth your time. All the "best" parts are in the trailers. Watching this on the big screen will just p!ss you off. If you must see it my advice to you is to walk out after the first 30 minutes, get a refund and watch something else. You'll thank me.
