Storyline

Rell's life is changed forever when a cute kitten comes to his door, and he names it Keanu. Unfortunately, one weekend later, Keanu is abducted by persons unknown. Now Rell and his cousin, Clarence, are men on a mission to find Keanu against the odds. Unfortunately, those odds prove to be perilously high as they find Keanu in the care of the ruthless gangster, Cheddar, and he will only part with him for a price. Now for that cute kitten, these two middle class bumblers find themselves neck deep in a dangerous alien world of drugs and gang violence with only their desperate audacity, creativity and sheer dumb luck giving them a chance to survive.

Goofs

When the kitten escapes during the action scenes, you'll notice that his tail is upright. That is the sign of a happy cat. If a cat was truly scared, the tail would be low to the ground, and very fluffed up. See more »

Quotes

Keanu: Hello, Clarence. It's me, Keanu. Meow.
Clarence Goobril: Wait, are you Keanu Reeves?
Keanu: [laughs] Yeah, I'm your spirit teacher. People can't be excellent to you unless you're being excellent to yourself.

Soooo disappointing...
2 May 2016 | by aeasmmikeySee all my reviews

I personally think their sketch comedy is borderline brilliant. So I was really looking forward to this movie.

This movie is just plain awful. i am honestly not sure what movie others were watching when they said it was laugh out loud funny. it is not.

It reminds me of a lot of recent Paul Rudd-Seth Rogan movies. You know the kind: these guys think they are so frickin' hilarious just being themselves that no script is needed. That is what this movie felt like. I truly feel there was no written script; that there may have been vague "ideas" of what they wanted to have happen, and just threw the actors in and said "be funny; say something funny." the whole part with Anna Farris in the house and the rest of the guys waiting out in the car -- nothing came out of that scene that was remotely funny.

And the cat? Way too little of the cat. And when he was on screen, there was nothing funny about it.

The weird wife-friend sub plot went no where. Thank God.

Gosh, guys. For your first movie, was so expecting better
