Keanu HD Digital Ultraviolet UV Code
Keanu (Digital HD UltraViolet)
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, 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.
3 1/2 stars. Key and Peele make the transition from TV to the big screen and are just as funny.

Theatrical review. I was a little late to Key and Peele’s show on Comedy Central but did catch the last couple years. The sketch where their various characters are introduced at a football all-star game had me laughing so hard I started crying. I was genuinely sad to see the show go off the air. Not to worry, because here is a longer sketch with higher production values. And a very funny premise.
Keanu is the name of a kitten who shows up at Rell Williams (Jordan Peele) front door. Spending the night out with his best friend Clarence Goobril (Keegan-Michael Key), they return to find Rell’s home ransacked and Keanu missing. Evidently his place was mistaken for that of his next door neighbor and drug dealer Hulka (Will Forte). So the boys are on a mission to find the cute kittie which leads them straight into the den of the drug kingpin, Cheddar (Method Man).
When Rell and Clarence are mistaken for a couple of bad ass ganstas from Allentown, they just go with it. Their switch from polite suburbanites to gangsters shows what Key and Peele have done for years. That is, quickly adapting various personas, from their language to physical movements. What keeps the film from just another sketch is the circumstances and the money put into some nifty action sequences and oh that kittie (7 were used in the production). As you might expect, the film earns its “R” rating with plenty of violence, brutal killings, nudity, sex and language. It is also funny as hell. Recommended.
