Review Tuesday: Keeping Up with the Joneses (2016)

  Keeping Up with the Joneses (2016) - IMDb
Keeping Up with the Joneses
When a new new couple moves in, they seem very suspicious. 
With the success we had recently experienced with comedies, it wasn't very hard to talk Mrs Baxojayz into seeing this one for movie night. It stars Zack Galifianackis and Gal Gadot? Wonder Woman? SURE! 
Jeff and Karen (Zach and Isla Fasher) are an ordinary couple living in an ordinary neighborhood when Tim and Natalie Jones (Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot) move in next door. Shortly thereafter, Jeff and Karen start noticing some suspicious behavior by the people and that's when hilarity erupts.

This is really a SPY COMEDY with a fairly complex plot, yet has more than enough humor, action,  and sex appeal to keep your attention the entire time.  Even scenes about the awful and competitive ways that women deal with eachother and relationship issues were profound, yet funny!

The funny part about seeing this movie is that for years Mrs Baxojayz refused to see this movie because of Gal Gadot, as she's "my type." However, after seeing her as Wonder Woman, that was the deciding factor for her, and she was glad she did!
Definitely a lot of fun and worth watching!
