First I must disclose something before I write this review. I received a package from the marketing group for Keanu. I received a plush Keanu kitty and a calendar with all the photos of Keanu in the various movie poses that are part of the story. Here is an example of one of the pictures from the calendar. If you want to see all of them, they are in the movie…so if you want to see them you better get to the theater.
These pictures are awesome and I think well worth the price of admission themselves.
Some of you might not be into kitty movie call backs and really want to know if this movie is any good and if you should plop down your hard earned cash. The trailer doesn’t sell it very well and you are worried I get it. Even though the photo above should be enough for everyone.
Keanu is a semi fun movie that doesn’t live up to its full potential. It is funny, I had a good time watching it and I felt like they could of done so much more. Keanu feels like the type of movie that will be played on Comedy Central every Sunday for the next 10 years. Like Harold and Kumar. It was solid and isn’t bad in any way. It just wasn’t amazing either and that is what we all wanted. Something amazing with Key and Peele and a kitten. I felt like the cat was under utilized, they could of done so much more with him. While the movie is funny, it just doesn’t have the punch of getting off the network TV leash and having a rated R movie to do a lot more with.
I want to convey that I did have a lot of fun watching this movie and felt like it is worth seeing even in the theater, it just wasn’t the comedy home run I wish it was.
