Trivia

According to early publicity, including a 22 June 2016 article in show-business trade paper 'Variety' entitled "'Jon Hamm' and Gal Gadot Go Undercover in First Keeping Up with the Joneses (2016)'", Gadot's character was called Diana Jones but later release publicity states her character to be called Natalie Jones. Gadot's human character name when she plays Wonder Woman (2017) is Diana Prince. See more »

Goofs

The I.D. badges for MBI staff keep changing on a couple of people (Zac mostly) from being back to front (white plain) to being the correct way around in alternate shots. Also when Zac is in his car and stops in front of Jon Hamm the badge is upside down as it has been caught in his seat belt, in alternate shots it is back down again. See more »

Quotes

Natalie Jones: The first rule of being a spy is not to be in love with your partner.

A little generic & predictable but a movie that will keep you laughing and extremely entertained the entire time.
12 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Ten years, thirty countries no one finds us out and we can't even last a week in suburbia." Jeff (Galifianakis) and Karen (Fisher) Gaffney are a normal suburban couple with an average non-exciting life. When a new couple moves into the neighborhood they become friends with them, but the new couple has a secret. Now Jeff and Karen are put in the middle of a deadly high stakes deal with no idea what they are doing. First thing I have to say about this is that the movie is really funny and entertaining. There really isn't anything all that new and the movie is a little cookie cutter, but the acting and jokes make it seem fresh and exciting. The chemistry between all four of the actors is almost perfect and really helps the movie a ton. This movie won't win any awards or become a classic, but it is hilarious and I laughed throughout the entire thing. That is what a good comedy should do. I would compare this to Central Intelligence. You pretty much know what's going to happen the entire time, but you can't stop watching and laughing. Overall, a little generic and predictable but a movie that will keep you laughing and extremely entertained the entire time. This is a great watch. I give this a B+.
