The spring season is drawing to an end, and it’s coming to a conclusion with a bit of laughs, animated action, and famous people falling in love. Get ready for Keanu
, Ratchet and Clank
and Mother’s Day
Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer
. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.
I hate cats. So while I’m not hoping anything negative befouls the titular kitten Keanu in this thing, it’s hard for me to root for any feline-led flick. Thankfully, this might be about the cat in name alone. The rest of the flick looks like a chance for Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele to rip off every redband joke they couldn’t throw out there on their sketch show. And for that, we might be rewarded. Because this thing looks pretty hilarious.
In the quest to get back Peele’s new cat, Keanu, the duo embark on a gangster-filled, shoot’em up replete with just about everything you’d expect to see from the duo who push past a bunch of racial barriers in their comedy to expose both the good and bad living within our culture right now. That they’d make it about a mission to retrieve a kitten makes it all the better. Early reviews are strong with it sitting at 75% on the Tomatometer, now with critics mainly agreeing that the film works on a number of different levels. It might not stick this high over the course of the week, but it’s going to be a strong showing for the pair.
