Reviews in Brief: The Joneses

The 411: Writer and Director Derrick Borte brings us a family movie with a twist starring Demi Moore and David Duchovny. They all seem like a pretty normal all-American family, with their kids played by Amber Heard and American newcomer Ben Hollingsworth. But looks can be deceiving and they all have a few tricks up their sleeves that will help them in their mission but also destroy one of them.

The Good: This is one of the most original movies that I have ever had the pleasure to watch! It’s an original idea with a normal setup where you fall for the main character. It also added something that I personally have never experienced in a movie before. That would be to feel — for real — for the secondary characters. Then, hidden in this non-family film, comes a plot point that wasn’t expected but will surprise a few people.

The Bad: It’s a movie that doesn’t hide trying to be an advertisement for products, such as Audi cars, as you see their logo on the cars that the family drives as well as those of other characters later on in the movie. I really didn’t see the point in Amber Heard’s topless scene. I saw it as just a way to see her nude.

The Last Word: This has the most original plot and story of any movie right now and it is a breath of fresh air to see something new.

Theater, DVD, or Cable: I would recommend that you see the matinee screening.

The Joneses Review

A brash satire on all-American consumerism, The Joneses takes a smart idea and develops it into an entertaining, modern morality tale. There is an obvious conclusion that the accumulation of material goods does not guarantee happiness and the preachy ending grows a little soft around the edges. Neither David Duchovny nor Demi Moore have a strong box-office track record in recent years but positive reviews for their performances and the film’s exploitable zeitgeist vibe should provide the elements of a successful theatrical release for this enjoyable, thought-provoking fare.

The Joneses begins as a family of four move into a palatial suburban mansion that appears to have stepped straight from the pages of a Sunday supplement. Mom Kate (Demi Moore) and dad Steve (David Duchovny) ooze wealth, happiness and the dream lifestyle.

Their children Mick (Ben Hollingsworth) and Jen (Amber Heard) are no less perfect but it soon becomes clear that this is all too good to be true. Kate and Steve don’t eat together or sleep together and Jen’s behaviour towards her father is not that of a normal daughter.

The Joneses — Film Review

the_joneses
TORONTO — A self-satisfied satire about a quartet of salespeople posing as your average affluent American family, “The Joneses” certainly had a workable premise at its disposal.

But in the hands of first-time writer-director Derrick Borte, what could have been a biting black comedy taking product placement to the logical extreme instead is so obviously predictable that even a savvy cast led by David Duchovny and Demi Moore can’t sell it.

Emerging from the Toronto International Film Festival without a domestic-distribution deal, the film can’t help but draw comparisons to “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” another ill-timed comedy about raging consumerism that few found funny given the current economic climate.

From the get-go, there’s something a little too perfect about the Joneses, the attractive, confident brood that recently moved into their fabulously furnished home in a decidedly upscale suburb.

As it turns out, Steve (Duchovny), Kate (Moore) and their teenaged kids, Jenn (Amber Heard) and Mick (Ben Hollingsworth), aren’t a real family at all but a grouping of slick shills assembled by boss Lauren Hutton with the intention of getting the neighbors to lust after their cool stuff.

They would include the highly acquisitive Larry (Gary Cole) and his wife (Glenne Headly), who turn out to be seriously overextended as it is, and you don’t need a sales manual to see where things are headed.

Borte, who comes from the world of commercials, signals every intended plot twist and turn so far in advance, it’s way too easy to keep up with “The Joneses.” One expects a subliminal message of some sort, but it’s all on the surface.

It still works up to a point, largely because of the persuasive qualities of its cast, notably Duchovny’s raffish charm and Moore’s spirited hustle, which in tandem generates a palpable chemistry.

Or maybe that’s just what they wanted you to think.

David Duchovny to Star in The Joneses

David Duchovny has signed on to play a father living a lie in the upcoming dramedy, The Joneses, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The actor, who entered rehab last month for sex addiction, will star alongside Demi Moore, Amber Heard and Gary Cole in the film about a faux family feigning the picture of a perfect clan as a marketing ploy to introduce luxury products to neighborhoods.

Duchovny will play the bogus father, who is currently undergoing a “crisis of confidence” due to the phony life he’s leading, while Moore will portray the career-driven mother who’s struggling with her growing affection for Duchovny’s character.

Heard, who most recently appeared in Pineapple Express, will play their fake daughter, who herself is putting the moves on Duchovny’s character while looking for a rich sugardaddy.

Cole, who will next be seen on Chuck, will play a neighbor.

Echo Lake’s Doug Mankoff and Andy Spaulding will produce the flick with Kirsti Zea (Goodfellas). Filming starts next month in Atlanta.
