Variety (USA)

press

An amiable time-killer of an espionage comedy.

Empire (UK)

press

An unfortunate misfire that has the odd moment of charm and the odder chuckle, but otherwise isn’t worth keeping up with.

Hollywood Reporter

press

Stale as week-old bread and every bit as bland...

The Guardian (UK)

press

The leads huff and puff accordingly, but Michael LeSieur's dull-edged script squanders their timing, more concerned with reducing the actresses to their lingerie than with raising anything other than the occasional snicker.

New York Times

One way to end the scourge of "TV is better than film" articles is to stop making movies like "Keeping Up With the Joneses," a pedestrian comedy that almost seems intended as evidence for the cause.

FilmInk (Australia)

The film is just...bad. There's no other way to put it.

New York Post

press

"Joneses" never really upends its initial premise, which is that impossibly good-looking people are cooler than the rest of us. That's not comedy, that's Us Weekly.

Stuff.co.nz (James Croot)

There are sporadic moments of promise... but mostly, this middle-class farce fails to fire.
