Keeping Up with the Joneses movie quotes tell the story for the film about two government agents who move into a quiet suburban neighborhood. The comedy film was written by Michael LeSieur and directed by Greg Mottola. Keeping Up with the Joneses opened in theaters on October 21, 2016.
In Keeping Up with the Joneses movie quotes, we meet the overly normal suburban couple of Jeff (Zach Galifianakis) and Karen (Isla Fisher) Gaffney. So when the highly accomplished and worldly Tim (Jon Hamm) and Natalie (Gal Gadot) Jones, who are actually government agents, move into the neighborhood, the Gaffneys are instantly intrigued.
What follows is the Gaffneys nearly stalking the Joneses in an effort to find out why such a couple would settle in a boring neighborhood. But the Gaffneys find more than they ever imagined and soon become part of a dangerous international espionage plot.
