Who hasn’t been waiting for Key and Peele to put out a movie together? ‘Key and Peele’ was one of the best sketch comedy shows of recent memory. Their dynamic on screen is always must watch television and so we were all waiting to see how it would translate to the big screen. For the most part, Keanu works. It does a good job of incorporating the same humor from their show into the film. I just wish they pushed it even further. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments, but the plot of Keanu falls back into clichéd territory far too often.
It’s largely a spoof of action films in the same vein as the avidly popular Jump Street films. Instead of going undercover to take down drug dealers, the duo played by Key and Peele, pretend they are drug dealers to win back the kitten that was taken from them. But besides that, the plot unravels exactly as you would expect. You could make the argument that it’s not even necessarily a full on spoof, especially with its attempt at drama quite a few times throughout the film.
With that said, when the laughs hit, they hit hard. There’s something about the quick witted banter between Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele that it becomes addicting to watch after a while. I just feel they could have taken it a step further. The runtime feels a little long in the tooth too, especially towards the climax.
The supporting cast is okay, with a few surprises here and there, but the real hero here is Keanu the kitten. It isn’t named Keanu by accident, and I enjoyed how they played off his name throughout the film. But don’t go in expecting Keanu to be the center focus. The kitten only gets like 25 minutes of screen time, but it isn’t wasted.
Overall, Keanu features the incredible duo of Key and Peele and fans of the sketch show will no doubt walk away loving this, but there was still some untapped areas to be tackled. Whether it’s a sequel to Keanu, a return to TV, or a completely fresh idea, I’m down to watch anything these guys do.
+Brilliantly stupid premise
-But it ends up feeling cliché and uninspired
Has it’s share of moments but this cat-centric comedy mostly falls flat
Showcasing the gulf that often exists between making the jump from skit comedy and online fame to feature length films, American comedy superstars Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key have for their first venture into original Hollywood filmmaking (released direct to disc here in Australia) failed to make cat centred comedy Keanu a film of note.
Continuing on a rather unfortunate trend of recent comedies that just aren’t actually that funny and are often overly violent and mean spirited, Keanu initially begins as something likely to be adored by cult comedy fans (eg; those that like their Grandma Boy and Idiocracy) as the adorable kitten Keanu takes up home with Peele’s down on his luck Rell, but once poor old Keanu finds himself kidnapped (kitnapped?) by Method Man’s gangster Chedar, things within Key and Peele’s adventure quickly take a downward spiral of unfunny and overlong events.
Quiet funny in small doses, as their fame and many smart skits attest to, Key and Peele struggle to make the most of their undoubted chemistry as their mild mannered cousins take a step up as a pair of fake super hit-man/drug slingers and the two take a potentially funny if done correctly idea of these two everyday man impersonating people their not too far which extends to annoying put upon accents, George Michael fandom and a seriously odd scene involving Anna Farris.
Key and Peele’s performances here pose a large question mark over whether or not they can transition into fully fledged movie stars as it seems smaller doses rather than large doses of the two offer up more potential for them to make their particular brand of comedy tick over into feature length ventures.
Flirting at times with making something of its potentially hilarious premise, Keanu showcases snippets of genuine comedic gold but it’s often lost in amongst a story line that struggles to maintain momentum and ends up in rather uninteresting territory from the random possibilities it initially proposed.
Likely to be loved by the fans that can’t get enough of Key and Peele and for those that loves seriously cute kittens, Keanu is a disappointing culmination for Key and Peele after a number of years making their mark with much funnier skits.
