QUICK TAKE:
Action-Comedy: A married couple becomes increasingly suspicious that their new neighbors are too good to be true.
PLOT:
Jeff (ZACH GALIFIANAKIS) and Karen Gaffney (ISLA FISHER) live in a nice suburban Atlanta neighborhood, and with the kids now off to camp, they're all set to enjoy some time by themselves. But they, like their neighbors Meg (MARIBETH MONROE) and Dan (MATT WALSH), are curious about a new couple that has moved in on their cul-de-sac and paid cash for their place. When they first catch sight of Tim (JON HAMM) and Natalie Jones (GAL GADOT) they find the couple too good to be true, what with both being uber attractive and seemingly blissfully married.

While Jeff goes about his job as HR director for an aerospace firm where the work is so top secret even he can't go upstairs, Karen becomes increasingly suspicious about the Joneses, especially when odd things start occurring. And once they break into the couple's home while they're away, Jeff and Karen quickly realize their snooping has gotten them more than they bargained for, leading to a high-stakes game of espionage and such.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
The high profile cast might draw in some teenagers, especially if they're fans of any of those cast members, or comedy-style spy "thrillers."
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sexual content, action/violence and brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
