"Best movie with a message"
Rating: I like this movie and want to watch it again.
What was the movie about?
The movie is about a "family" and their job is to sell products. But there is a new "member" to their "family" acting as the husband. The husband doesn't really like it all as much as the others and finds himself falling for his "wife" during the same time. Meanwhile, their "kids" are causing havoc.
Was the movie based on something else?
No, it's an original work
Which 3 features, good or bad, stood out most about this movie? Why?
1. I really liked what the movie was about. It was about consumerism and showed that we don't need it "all".
2. The acting was great. Demi Moore and David Duchovny star as the "parents".
3. The reality. The movie really captured what typical "suburban" families live and look like.
What scene did you absolutely love or absolutely hate?
I love the opening scene where the moving trucks are arranging the house. Everything's white and perfect. I think it really sets the stage well and you're already trapped into the movie.
Who was your favorite actor/actress in the movie? Why?
I loved Demi Moore. I've never seen her act before, and she really pulled it off well. She made the movie that one little bit more meaningful.
If you could change one thing about the movie or the story, what would it be?
The Joneses' job affects their neighbours the most, but we only realise that until maybe halfway into the movie. I would have definitely made that clear earlier on.
What age range is this movie appropriate for?
Anyone can see it, but definitely someone who is allowed or legally allowed to watch a movie that is 14A, as this movie was.
Any other comments?
It had a great message to send to the public! (and there are mature sexual scenes in the movie, e.g. kissing in bed)
