    Slick as a pig and reeking of phony sympathy for recession-wracked consumers, The Joneses is a black comedy about stealth marketing made by a filmmaker who's evidently much too close to the subject to bite the hand that feeds him.

I had never heard of the film before I saw it on TV but the premise intrigued me so I took a chance. Mulder acted extremely well, Amber Heard probably gave her best performance and as per usual Gary Cole was phenomenal. The storyline was fantastic and had it been paced ever so slightly quicker I think I would have given this a 9. I felt it waned ever so slightly in the middle. Still, more than worth a view and I would definitely recommend it! Full Review »

Its a good movie but I cant help feeling that the studios saw a movie that was too dark ( which it scratched towards the latter part of the movie ) and polished it off. The result has changed what could have been a dark movie into an enjoyable Sunday afternoon movie. The ending kills off any notion of it being alternative. I liked it, just felt that there was something else there which was unfortunately sidelined. Full Review »

    La premisa de la opera prima del exdirector de comerciales Derrick Borte es interesante -una familia falsa se muda a unos suburbios pudientesLa premisa de la opera prima del exdirector de comerciales Derrick Borte es interesante -una familia falsa se muda a unos suburbios pudientes de Estados Unidos para provocar la envidia consumista de los vecinos- pero su realización es timorata e inconsecuente. Lástima por el reparto, encabezado por Demi Moore y David Duchovny. Full Review »
