“The Joneses Unplugged” is basically an old fashioned Touchstone Pictures formula, and interesting underwear for good measure. Remember, Touchstone took on the actors who had familiar faces in the ’80s, but still did not prove boxing potential, or who had slipped from the height they had reached for some time, making them Disney productions.
In high-concept vehicles that can easily be summarized in a 30-second commercial and are not too costly to produce and then sit and serve dough. Sometimes it was a perfect movie, with Paul Mazursky’s funny “Down and Out in Beverly Hills”, Barry Levinson’s wonderful “Tin Men” and Martin Scorsese’s “The Color of Money”, but often the results were almost forgotten (Ask yourself when is the last time you think about “Ugly Fortune”?) And I wish you to see the participants in a project worthy of their talents.
