Buddy cop movies are so 90s. These days it’s all about the married couple spy combo with a hint of annoying neighbours.
Sounds ridiculous right? And yet, here we are, staring down the barrel of Keeping Up with the Joneses, a comedy which stars Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher as an ordinary suburban couple who suspect that their perfect new neighbours Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot aren’t who they say they are.
Obviously they’re covert spies working for the government (duh) who eventually enlist the help of the bumbling Galifianakis and Fisher to get the mission done.
It’s textbook slapstick but in a Bad Neighbours meets Mr. & Mrs. Smith meets Date Night kind of way. See the trailer above.
