Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Demi Moore and David Duchovny star as a seemingly perfect couple who, along with their equally perfect teenagers (Amber Heard and Ben Hollingsworth) move into an upscale gated community. The Joneses have better goods and game than any other family in town. The only problem is they're not a family - they are employees of a stealth marketing organization, and they know how to make everyone else want what they've got.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Borte conjures up a pleasant Stepford that runs less on robotic conformity than on endless, anxious competition. The key to the film is that it allows this life to have some real appeal.
Fresh: It makes for good, although not great, satire of the consumer culture that helped wreck the economy.
Fresh: In an entertaining way, the movie says something challenging, that it's possible to lose your life to stuff -- and never even know it.
Rotten: The Joneses starts with a great pitch but ultimately fails to close the deal.
acceptable, movie shelfer
It was a fun movie with secrets, and desires people strive for to have, its worth the buy and This movie had a great concept and basic well thought out open yet not spoken message about human behavior. Great ending, but for it to have an excellent conclusion they needed to throw in a bigger twist or end with a more shocking problem then with the given ending.
Originality at its best
What an outstanding premise for a movie. I loved every minute of it.
ehh good, but.....
The Joneses is a good movie ill admit it. But one problem youve seen it a million times before, you know exactly whats gonna happen. Dont let that stop you from renting it, its very funny and enjoyable.
