Ladies and Germs,
I have long held the belief that Keanu Reeves’ peak acting performance was in “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.” Since that movie, his delivery of lines has become vapid and monotonous - he lost that “Ted fire,” if you will.
Now I’m no Reeves expert. It must be known that I haven’t seen every movie he has been in. I’ve probably seen a half dozen. Perhaps there is a gem out there that I have missed.
The secret behind his fame eludes me. He’s such a bad actor, I am continually astonished that he is still getting acting gigs.
So in order to educate myself as well as others, here’s a poll. Two questions. First, in what movie did Reeves give his greatest acting performance? Second, what movie in which Reeves “acted” is greatest among the lot? For reference, there is a list here.
- Reeves’ greatest acting was in “Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” as I previously mentioned. Sure he was dumb, but he had enthusiasm.
- The greatest movie in which he appeared is “Much Ado About Nothing.” This is my favorite Shakespearian movie adaptation. Well written, beautifully filmed and great actors (Emma Thompson sp?).
