Keeping Up with the Joneses

For the tenth episode of Don't Watch This Shit, Mick, Jesse, and Taylor watched Keeping Up with the Joneses, starring Zack Galifianakis, Isla Fischer, Jon Hamm, and Gal Gadot. The latest take on the suburban fish out of water genre, the boys discuss this movie about two nosy neighbors while simultaneously workshopping a screenplay about the Presidents of the United States, starring Jon Hamm.


1. Kids largely unseen and ignored save for comic relief.

2. Joneses start off as seemingly bad guys but are later revealed to be good guys.

3. At least 1 Mexican Stand Off.

4. Zach G. does slow-mo dramatic aimed shot to save Jon Hamm/Gal Gadot.

5. At least 1 high-speed car chase, especially in a Mom car.

Bonus: Gal Gadot stabs and drinks the blood of her enemies.

Final Thoughts: More Man Hamm!


1. The Joneses are going to be backstabbed by the government.

2. A car is going to explode from a bullet hit.

3. At the end, the frumpy couple will be invited to be spies, but decline.

4. Not a single gun will have recoil.

5. Jon Hamm is going to be shot in the shoulder, incapacitating him so Galifianakis has to save the day.

Bonus: Fishbowl=Keys

Final Thoughts: 

I wish this movie had Zach Braff instead.


1. The Joneses are actually good.

2. Movie hinges on physical comedy.

3. The big bads will be North Korean or Russian.

4. Plot is kicked off by something stupid and innocuous that normal person would let go.

5. Movie will attempt to make ham-fisted commentary on suburban life/spying on neighbors.

Final Thoughts: 

You'll probably see this on TV.
