KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES
July 27, 2017  | By David Bianculli

HBO2, 9:05 p.m. ET

 

This 2016 comedy stars Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher as a suburban couple whose neighborhood makes room for some astoundingly attractive and mysterious new neighbors: a glamorous couple played by Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot. The comedy comes from the growing suspicion that this new couple, the Joneses, may be up to something, and may be spies. And they are. Hamm, of course, comes from Mad Men, and has the 007-style era and panache down cold. But Gadot is just as confidently charismatic, whether she’s dressed to kill or barely dressed. And it’s easy to see, from the way she matches Hamm and everyone else scene for scene, laugh for laugh, and especially action scene for action scene, how Gadot went from her small supporting role here to her career-making star turn as and in Wonder Woman.
