Rated: R

Release Date: April 29, 2016

Director: Peter Atencio

Stars: Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele

Plot: Two suburban guys pretend to be gang bangers in order to get their kitten back



Clint Says: Save some money and see a matinee



Key and Peele are hilarious. If you haven't seen their work, go to YouTube and spend a couple of hours laughing uncontrollably. Unfortunately, KEANU is not their best work. It is funny in many places, but it never gets to the point where you can't breathe because you are laughing so hard. 


Also, one of the key ingredients in making a comedy that centers around dangerous and suspenseful activities is that those activities need to be dangerous and suspenseful. KEANU gets close, but you never really feel like the guys are in danger nor is the action very suspenseful. 


If you do see it, make sure to stick around to the end of the credits. There is a setup for a sequel. 


While this isn't a great movie, it will give you a few good laughs if you go. I will say that the kitten is adorable, so there is that.
