Not bad, but not much to it, either. Movie is more about the message, I guess. Is lack of self control really contagious ? Well shot and decently acted. Demi Moore still looks good. I think the father role could have benefitted from a different actor, though. Duchovny has a cool (almost cold) personality and although he is likable, he did not convey the deepest of feelings (imho) that I think the role called for at the end.

I enjoyed this movie and how it ended.It has a few lessons in it. Beware of when people flaunt their wealth, you do not know their source. Be content with the little or much that you have.

It was released in very limited release. I got a chance to see it at the Omaha Film Festival in 2010. This was a really good film, and wish more people had a chance to see it. It was well acted, and shot.

good cast, and a new story, but gets unbelievable, and ending is not so good. otherwise, watch it on a friday evening only.

I quite enjoyed this film. Didn't feel it was a waste of time - it was quite thought provoking.

Good – The Joneses (2009) 96 min. Lies come in many shapes and sizes. Truth, on the other hand, is unique; one of a kind. It may not be wonderful at all times, but it’s real. The Joneses explores the theme of materialism to the nth degree. It’s about a group of people pulled together as a “family” unit to impress those around them in selling the products they’re endorsing. Some are drawn by the power; some are destroyed. It’s never greener on the other side; it’s only another patch of grass with its own kind of weeds. One of the neighbors pays the greatest price in discovering this truth. This is one of those rare films that begged me to sit and watch until the very end. The film is not perfect as the messages become a little gray by the end of the film but it’s definitely thought provoking. Well done.

Did this film ever hit theatres? I saw this premiere at the Toronto film festival 2009 ... I liked it for David Duchovny most of all (of course!), but its clever maligning of brand labels and material-driven culture was good too!
