Comedy duo Key & Peele make their big-screen debut in Keanu. Read up on the stolen-cat comedy and this week's other new releases in our In Theaters section, where you can watch trailers, buy tickets, and more.
This film is a bit of a mess. It attempts to be clever by having the black person in the interracial relationship having all the doubts because of society's pressures. Big deal. It's poorly written, poorly constructed and poorly photographed. And when I say amateur hour -- I mean just a little more than an hour. Note the short running time and the use of still photographs to take up screen time. It's a real shame that a film trying to tackle an important topic was mishandled so badly. It may have made a decent ABC Afterschool Special in the 1970s -- if you made the characters high-school kids.
