Trivia: "Keeping Up with the Joneses" was originally meant to be a spin-off/reboot of the film "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," with the title "Mr. and Mrs. Jones." Eventually, all connections to "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" were dropped and the film was retooled to be a stand-alone movie with its current title.


Continuity mistake: The level of snake wine changes in the glass as the camera cuts back and forth during the conversation in the Chinese restaurant between Jeff and Tim.

Question: So was there a point to the dressing room scene between Amy Adams and Gal Gadot? She trying to seduce her to get info or was this merely an excuse to get these two half nude?


Answer: It was definitely meant to be a sexy scene, but it isn't pointless. The two were genuinely bonding during that scene and the gradual friendship built between the couples forms a major part of the plot. The sexiness between them also sets up the scene later in the film where the two kiss and Karen discretely passes a knife to Natalie. As an aside, Karen isn't played by Amy Adams, she is played by Isla Fisher. Amy Adams and Isla Fisher share a striking resemblance and are constantly mistaken for one another.
