Orlando Sentinel

By Roger Moore
The Joneses manages a deft blend of the sexy, the sad and the silly. And Borte doles out his secrets and surprises in ways that make it easy to keep up with these Joneses.

New York Observer

By Rex Reed
Surprising, inventive and crisply, merrily written and directed by Derrick Borte, The Joneses is a brisk, captivating entertainment. Think Ozzie and Harriet on speed.

The beauty of The Joneses is that the salesmen are as much the victims as the people they're deceiving.

A sharp sendup of suburban conformity and American materialism, The Joneses does burn through its credit by the end. But it's flashy enough to catch our eye, and keep our interest nearly all the way through.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Michael Rechtshaffen
What could have been a biting black comedy taking product placement to the logical extreme instead is so obviously predictable that even a savvy cast led by David Duchovny and Demi Moore can't sell it.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
An overobvious and underwhelming satire about American consumerism run amok.

Boston Globe

By Janice Page
It’s cute and clever to a point -- especially if you don’t know much about the film’s premise going in -- but then the cleverness runs on like the one-note punch line of an interminable “Saturday Night Live’’ sketch, sponsored by Audi.
