So maybe I should start this off by saying that I am a huge fan of Key and Peele – seriously huge! I was one of those people that waited religiously each week for a dose of the comedic duo’s hilarious sketches and checked YouTube every day for just a little more. The guys are good and I was hooked!
When the news hit that the funnymen were ending their hit show, I nearly went into a state of panic but survived this news assured that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s role in comedy, Hollywood and my life was only beginning. They have already had appearances on hit shows like Parks And Recreation, Modern Family, The Middle and they also have joint recurring roles on Fargo. Not to mention the appearances they have both made in some very popular movies.
Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, a.k.a. the hugely popular comedy duo Key & Peele, star as Clarence and Rell, two cousins who live in the city but are far from streetwise. When Rell’s beloved kitten, Keanu (presumably named after the John Wick star), is catnapped, the hopelessly straight-laced pair must impersonate ruthless killers in order to infiltrate a street gang and retrieve the purloined feline. But the incredibly adorable kitten becomes so coveted that the fight over his custody creates a gang war, forcing our two unwitting heroes to take the law into their own hands.
From that trailer it looks like the movie is going to be a lot of fun in that typical Key & Peele style of comedy and to be hone it does seem like it could be one of the sketches used on there show – just a lot longer. With that being said their sketches have always had somewhat of a movie feel and look, so for me Keanu will be a refreshing, albeit over-the-top comedy.
Keanu also stars Will Forte, Method Man and Gabrielle Union. It is scheduled for release locally on April 29, 2016.
