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.

2 hours of my life wasted
11 May 2016 | by ranat85See all my reviews

This was such a disappointment. 2 hours of my life wasted. Bad acting, stupid plot and definitely not as funny as the tailor implied.

The acting was poor, the story is very unrealistic and a little insulting to the intelligence of the viewer. I'm sure they could have had a better plot, even if it revolved around rescuing a cute kitten. They could have still made it more realistic. I was watching it and thinking seriously! That's what the writers thought would be a good twist?

To me a good comedy would be something like the hangover, okay it's unrealistic but it's still not stupid.. If the hangover is a 10 then Keanu is a -30.

In summary, I think the actors, writers and directors could have done a better job, Such a disappointment and total waste of time. Don't watch it, there are plenty of good comedies out there and this is NOT one of them.
