I have always loved this sort of plot, like "The Stepford Wives", creating a picture-perfect however is rotten inside. I'd give 2 stars for the plot and 4 stars for performing. The actors are wonderful. Great acting. Demi is on point as usual. Amber, again, acts in slutty role. I don't like how the husband is acting in this film but that is when the script is not good, not David. He performs well.
The men in this family are too soft. As a product developer, this is how we do our job. It is indeed my dream to work in the field as the Joneses. Their jobs are technically to sell the lifestyles, not things or products. Hence, whoever wants that lifestyle or have money but doesn't know how, they are like free interiors, designers, marketers, stylists! It isn't their faults if someone cannot control their spending habits, goes overboard in debt. Ofc, it isn't good. Sadly, working in retail, I am in a deep debt myself. I blame no one though because I know it is my choice. I need to learn to control myself. Back to the script, KC is right, Kate shouldn't pick an amateur. He is too emotionally involved with his client. This is why you need to set boundaries for, in every job. Especially, in this kind of special position. He should've known better. The boy also, he is too emotional as well. Speaking of which, isn't it what all celebrities are doing? Product placements-every events, shows, merchants, outfits, accessories, toys...majorities of them do not own any. They are provided by the companies and they receive payments for showing those off. Hence, their fans, viewers and whomever desire to be like them can purchase. You cannot put a blame on every death or foreclosure for spending money to be like an icon on all of the celebs, right! The same thing is applied to this movie. I guess, since it is a movie, they need a dramatic effect.
What I don't get is that KC seems to be a harsh lady, all-about-business, however, she does nothing when Steve the whole cover. It'd cost the company great damage to cover the moving cost, police investigation, consumer loss, etc. Yet, she offers him a new position instead of fining him or suing him? I'm pretty sure they have to sign some sort of contract or agreement on do-not-share-company-info etc. So many illogic points I want to mention but...this is good enough. Lol.
