Post Key & Peele marry kittens, gangsters and George Michael in 'Keanu' - Toronto Sun


New York Times

Key & Peele marry kittens, gangsters and George Michael in 'Keanu'
Toronto Sun


The George Michael love is also notable (Clarence is a fan, and convinces Cheddar’s posse that the Wham! singer was gangsta. He even has a drug-induced George Michael vision).
Peele: “He really helps make the movie iconic. We were so glad to get him.”
Key: “He’s English, so he’s incredibly white. But he’s also soulful, so he was absolutely the choice to tee up the comedy.”
Who was the George Michael fan?
Key: “I’m in the sweet spot. I was in high school when he was 100% in his prime. My sophomore year in high school to my junior year of college was right when he was the biggest megastar in the world. So I have very fond memories of dancing with beautiful girls to his music.
“For me, at the time, I wasn’t self-conscious. I was a big Smiths guy. I liked R.E.M. The whitest of white music, British rock. But when you heard (Michael’s) voice, you couldn’t deny the talent.”

I'm really looking forward to this. Those guys are hilarious, and the use of George's music is witty. (The kitten is cute too.)

The new Key & Peele film Keanu is seeing mostly positive reviews on the heels of its Friday (April 29) opening, but two people in particular are raving about the comedy duo's first feature: George Michael and his longtime manager Michael Lippman.

" George*Michael has slowed down some in recent years, but you can't say the same of his music. Not only are four of his songs used in Keanu*("Father Figure,"*"One More Try," "Faith"*and "Freedom! '90"),*Michael also boasts placements in Zoolander, the theme to Deadpool and the upcoming Martin Scorsese movie Bleed for This, starring Miles Teller ".

Things are hopefully looking up - wonder what the Scorsese track is?

i think i must be the only person who doesn't know who Key and Peele are. Are they big in the US? I' not a fan of this type of movie at all but guess i will watch when it comes out on the telly. The Scorsese movie sounds much more interesting. Not seen Zoolander either - anyone know the song in that one?

Key and Peele have a 30 minute sketch tv show on the Comedy Central cable channel. Sometimes it is funny,sometimes tedious. I think the target demographic would be males age 14 to 25.

Keanu is mostly tedious. The only thing that managed to wake me up was when they started talking about George.
