The best film I've seen this year!

"David Duchovny is brilliant as always. The concept is brilliant and the execution daring. The film is about "all fun until somebody gets hurt" and is a sharp satire on consumer society. This movie is very relevant to 2010.The film is elegantly made by gifted first-time writer and director Derrick Borte.
As the patriarch, heart and conscious of the film, Duchovny does one of his most interesting film work to date. His dry wit has never been better used, he can get a laugh out of a perfectly-timed "Noooooo", but he also digs into this guy's soul and compellingly lays out the emptiness inside. I think David Duchovny is one of the best actor of his generation.
David Duchovny and Demi Moore are perfectly cast as the too-gorgeous-to-be-true Joneses and they have an appealingly sparky chemistry together that works well. Heard and Hollingsworth have strong scenes and there's terrific support from both Glenne Headly and the always-excellent Gary Cole as their envious neighbours.
The Joneses is a hugely enjoyable comedy drama with a brilliant script and terrific performances from Duchovny and Moore. Highly recommended.
By the way, I loved the end."
