Keanu Movie Review |Key and Peele Atlanta Screening Monday 18 April, 2016

IMG_4388 You know what I love about Atlanta? The movie screenings, and the new upcoming comedy Keanu ATL had a special treat with the stars of the film coming into town to promote the movie Key and Peele. This comedic duo who got their start in one of my favorite past shows, MadTV, Key and Peele who have their own show has translated their well overdue talented to the big screen about Keanu – the cat! Yes a cat! Tell you more about my opinion below with the synopsis!

Synopsis:Recently dumped by his girlfriend, slacker Rell (Jordan Peele) finds some happiness when a cute kitten winds up on his doorstep. After a heartless thief steals the cat, Rell recruits his cousin Clarence (Keegan-Michael Key) to help him retrieve it. They soon learn that a thug named Cheddar (Method Man) has the animal, and he’ll only give it back if the two men agree to work for him. Armed with guns and a gangster attitude, it doesn’t take long for the hapless duo to land in big trouble. 

My Opinion:I hope you are a fan of Key and Peele comedy because it’s filled through this film. Key and Peele’s type of comedy is very slaptick but its that off guard schoolyard giddy kind of comedy that I actually like. Some of the comedy’s out now are almost either too forced or not even really ha ha funny anymore. So only these two can turn some hardcord action type film into a satire comedy about a cat. Yes a kitten at that named Keanu. The entire movie was about them saving a stolen beloved cat and going on a mission to retrieve it from gangsta Cheddar (played by Method Man). The entire movie I am like they are doing all of this for a cat? A freaking cat?

And that’s why it was so funny for me…sometimes we need a parody of these predictable action/drug/gangsta movies.They are all the same in my opinion but breaking it up with comedy that is the opposite of hardcore…which is a cute little kitten is pretty genius to me. I was laughing the majority of the movie. Its super silly – but again its a comedy! Don’t take it too seriously…be prepared to laugh or have a stick up your butt if this isn’t your type of humor.

I didn’t get a chance to go to the after party, I am really sad about it because I didnt get a chance to take a photo op with the cast – especially regretful of not getting next to Method Man. Man Method Man is super sexy and just still fine. Like what is up with men from the 90s not aging? I’m not complaining still swooning…ok I am snapping out of it!

Keanu is a movie I highly recommend if you are looking to seriously get your laugh on. Come on and see the movie about rescuing a cute kitty! Keanu is cute…the movie is hilarious – Key and Peele have serious problems coming up with a film like this, but I like it! keanu_1sht_main_vert_2764x4096_dom_master
