I love the idea, an undercover sales team posing as a family in wealthy American suburbs, and for awhile the film works, and is interesting.

Worth watching? Yes, but it wil be forgotten about in a year.

This is also the biggest issue I have with this movie. Although I enjoyed to watch it, the category in which to place this movie isn't very clear. The genre is supposed to be 'comedy and drama' and sure it has some funny moments but I wouldn't call it a comedy. There are some dramatic and romantic events in the movie but it wouldn't do the movie justice to describe it as a 'drama'. The most interesting thing about this movie is the underlying moral, how modern-day advertising works and how consumerism determines our everyday lives.
