But don’t blame the highly talented cast for this stinker.
The New York Times says, “The absence of laughs can’t be blamed on a lack of talent. The movie’s utilitarian construction and non-igniting star chemistry are a surprise from this director, Greg Mottola, of “Adventureland, ” “Superbad” and “The Daytrippers.” Without a fresh comic approach, “Keeping Up With the Joneses” settles for bathroom jokes (Karen plans to design a fancy urinal) and ethnocentrism, as when Tim takes Jeff to a Chinese restaurant that serves poisonous snakes.”
The New York Post says, “When the movie’s not beating up on its regular Joe, it’s ogling its two leading ladies. Anyone eagerly awaiting Gadot’s upcoming debut as Wonder Woman may cringe as director Greg Mottola (“Superbad”) stages her confrontation with Karen in a lingerie dressing room, for no relevant reason. (Sure, her superhero costume will also be skimpy, but it’s made of freaking Amazonian armor.) Fisher, later, stays in a corset and garters for lengthy high jinks, then is stuffed into a tiny cleavage-baring dress. Somehow, neither of their spouses ever ends up in a similar state of undress.”
