Hi! Do you have any recommendations for a less stressful, more lighthearted Keanu movie? I like seeing him in pretty much anything but sometimes I get overwhelmed with too much action and drama. Thanks so much & love your blog by the way!
I LOVE Keanu’s lighter roles!!! Here’s my personal faves, anon!
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure–two goofy high school best friends have a fun romp through time to gather historical figures for their history report!
Swedish Dicks–this is a Swedish comedy show that Keanu has a recurring role in. He’s hilarious.
The Night Before (1988)–a comedy about a high school kid who wakes up the night after prom not remembering anything that happened the night before. Has some action/mild peril but it’s mostly comedic.
Something’s Gotta Give–Keanu plays Dr. Julian Mercer, a very dashing doctor. Supporting role but he’s in it a lot.
Henry’s Crime–mild action but it’s overall a very fun comedy.
The Lakehouse–a little bit of a tearjerker at one point but very sweet–and it has a happy ending!
The Replacements–a football team goes on strike, so a ragtag team of players gets thrown together to replace them. Fun sports movie.
Parenthood–Keanu is a supporting character in this, but it’s definitely worth the watch. Some drama but mostly lighthearted.
Babes in Toyland (1986 TV movie)–This is SO damn funny in a not-on-purpose kind of way. And Keanu’s adorable in it.
