Are the most memorable thing in the first trailer for Keeping Up With the Joneses. It’s an action-comedy that looks like a cross between Mr. & Mrs. Smith and The Burbs with a dash of Date Night thrown in, and stars Isla Fisher, Zach Galifianakis—who I BARELY recognized—Jon Hamm, and Gadot. Full Story
