Review: 7.5 out of 10 stars.
The fuzzy little cat lured you in. Then the cat used its charm to keep you engaged with the 2 main characters’ natural act, even with the most silly impossibly predictable plot. Totally enjoyable fun flick.
You forgot about the stupid plot because Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key were believable, and the cats (7 of them to play 1 role) were trained quite well. Cats are generally hard to train but these little guys definitely did a great job.
The movie surrounded about the cat that everyone wants and it just got into different hands as it ran from 1 place to another. The shooting of the cats and acting of the cast was decent. The 2 main characters, Clarence and Rell, were just regular guys but when it comes to getting the cat back, they had to pretend to be gangsters. And then comedy started.
While there were some blipping words and F-bombs, and some comical shootings going on, it’s a very mild R rated.
With the cat Keanu (see spoiler) as the tie, it’s all about awes and meows all around the audience, interluding with the audience’s laughter, it’s a successful flick that no one felt embarrassed to laugh and feel silly.
Only if cats were really that friendly in real life!
The movie did not use any CGI or special effects. Stunts by Clarence (Keegan-Michael Key) was his as he did a flip during the screening event. Both he and Peele did a comic gig in front of the audience and they definitely were cool and very fun to watch. The audience laughed pretty hard on the duo and they have such amazing chemistry, on and off screen.
Stay for the credits as there will be a 5 seconds “after the credit” that reminds of Pulp Fiction or a little bit of Walking Dead.

— Spoiler Ahead —
Everyone was wondering how the voice over came about by the real Keanu Reeves. For one thing that the duo in the event said no CGI or special effects, well, that was not entirely true.
When Clarence had to take some drug called “Holy Sh**” to show he was a gangster, he started hallucinating, started with his all time love of George Michael (references all over the booty shaking and singing), then Keanu appeared and started talking to him. That was the voice over by Keanu.
Overall, there are lots of references in “Post It” on different movies, from The Matrix, to Reservoir Dogs, to New Jack City. All as part of the cat calendar.
