My first movie review! Truly, there are not many cat movies in Hollywood today, but let's hope this begins to change, since cats have already taken over the internet. "Keanu" is hilarious! I have not watched Peele and Key's TV program (Key and Peele, on Comedy Central), but I know enough about them to realize that they make fun of everyone and everything. Here is the blurb about the movie:
"Friends hatch a plot to retrieve a stolen kitten by posing as drug dealers for a street gang."
I was relieved that the kitten, named Keanu, was never mistreated nor suffered at the hands of any character portrayed in the movie. Even the baddest of bad guys love the kitten!!!
Here is a link about the kitten:
However, let me make this VERY CLEAR: this is not a movie for a youngster, nor anyone that is easily offended! It is rated R for some very good reasons! The writers take potshots at EVERYBODY, and there is a lot of curse words, nudity, gang-type stuff, and rampant drug paraphernalia usage...even some George Michael music...if you can stomach it! Hahaha! If you take the movie as a complete and utter SPOOF of cop movies, shoot-em-up movies, any Patrick Swayze movie (and every other type of movie available!) you will have a good time watching "Keanu".
And the kitten steals the show! A tabby kitten, with a meow as sweet as honey...what isn't there to love?
