If you’d asked me a year ago where I thought Jon Hamm’s career was going after Mad Men, I would’ve told you that it was gonna go to some great places. Now, I’m introducing a new clip from Keeping Up with the Joneses. Hey, I’ve been wrong before.
Jeff and Karen (Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher) are a normal suburban couple whose lives get turned upside down they get new neighbours, Tim and Natalie Jones (Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot), a seemingly perfect couple who turn out to be super spies. In this clip, Tim takes Jeff to the cobra club, where Jeff partakes from a drink that has a real cobra in it. This is such a weird clip to release; there’s nothing particularly funny or interesting about it, it’s not exactly a big moment in the film, and it doesn’t sell it at all. A lot of the marketing for this film has been terrible and this is no exception. Keeping Up with the Joneses looks to be a sub par spy comedy with a cast who could do so much better.
Keeping Up with the Joneses is out 28th October
