Keanu Movie Review

Keegan-Michael Key & Jordan Peele (r) star in Keanu

Gangster Pet

Rotten Tomatoes PlotKeegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele star in this comedy as two friends posing as drug dealers to get back a stolen cat. Directed by Peter Atencio.

"Everybody likes baby kittens," right? Evidently some (a lot) more than others. Keanu, AKA Iglesias & New Jack (City) is the object of everyone's affection in Keanu, a big screen coming out party for Comedy Central stars Key & Peele, and one of 2016's funniest films to date. Despite moments of absurdity, it's hard impossible to keep a straight face as "Shark Tank" & "Tecktonik" trade one-liners, tears and ultimately blood... over an adorable cat (and to a lesser extent... George Michael.) Quite possibly, the best comedic (movie) duo since Richard Pryor & Gene Wilder. How's that for high praise?

Grade: B
