Movies: The Joneses

The Joneses http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1285309/

David Duchovny and Demi Moore are the parents in a mom-dad-son-daughter family that moves into an upscale neighborhood. They have all the best and newest toys, clothes, cars, electronics and strive to impress everyone around them.  Can the neighbors keep up with the Joneses?

A dark comedy-drama that's built on kind of a neat premise that comments on consumerist society. Much better flick than I anticipated.  Has a good supporting cast too.  Especially Gary Cole.  A good easy-to-watch dark satire even if you're generally not into those sorts of flicks.

I was hesitant about watching this one. But after getting into the story I sat it out and it was worth it. Even has a little romance bit in there for the ladies.
