Demi Moore and David Duchovny star as a seemingly perfect couple who, along with their equally perfect teenagers (Amber Heard and Ben Hollingsworth) move into an upscale gated community. The Joneses have better goods and game than any other family in town. The only problem is they're not a family - they are employees of a stealth marketing organization, and they know how to make everyone else want what they've got.

Common Sense Says
Teen sex, drugs, drinking pop up in satire on materialism.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this worthy satire pokes fun at materialism while making it look very tantalizing in the process (thanks to a load of product placement throughout the film). One of the teen girl characters is sexually intimate with at least two older men, and we see her breasts briefly and hear sexual sounds, though no activity appears onscreen. A teen boy kisses another boy before being rebuffed. Teens drink alcohol and drive drunk. There’s some pot-smoking and diet pill-popping, along with a good amount of swearing ("f--k" and "bitch"). Yet the movie has the potential to start some meaningful discussions about materialism and how products are sold to consumers.
