When I was told I would be covering a movie called Keanu, the first thing I did was rush to my computer to check out the trailer.
I fell in love immediately. Everyone at work started crying laughing, because if there’s one thing you need to know about me… it’s that I love cats. This movie was made for me.
But – before stepping into the theatre – I wanted to make sure that my love for felines wouldn’t create an unwarranted bias. I needed to watch the movie for what it was, to be able to give it an honest review.
This. Movie. Was. Amazing.
AND I’m not just saying that because of how cute Keanu was (how do they train cats, anyway?).
To give you a little background on the movie: Rell (Jordan Peele), who was recently dumped by his girlfriend, finally finds the happiness he was looking for when basically the cutest kitten in the world (Keanu) ends up on his doorstep. After a HORRIBLE MAN steals the cat (like, who’d do that???), Rell seeks the help of his cousin Clarence (Keegan-Michael Key) to get his little kitten back. What they soon learn, is that a ‘thug’ named Cheddar (Method Man) actually has Keanu in his possession, and he’ll only give it back if the two men agree to work for him. Ya… Let’s just say it gets a little crazy.
I’m going to stop there – I really don’t want to give too much away!
All you gotta know is – this movie is a MUST SEE. I was crying laughing the whole time… and so will you.
