Keanu Reeves in “The Night Before”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello again, and Welcome to this Blog of Miss TaffeytheChamp! Have any of you ever seen some of the early films within Keanu Reeves’ repertoire? I have, and there is one in particular that I’d like to focus upon this week. It is simply entitled, “The Night Before”.

I found this film to be a cute and cuddly type of comedy. Keanu Reeves’ character, “Winston Connelly”, experiences an entire night of unusual and comical mishaps in “The Night Before”. I found him sweet and affecting as the high school geek who ended up dating a Miss Popular type when she lost a bet to one of her popular best friends. The year is 1988, so Keanu Reeves is quite young here, and admirably fresh-faced.

Storyline: “Winston Connelly wakes up in the middle of the night in an alley with no idea of how he got there. Nor does he know where in Los Angeles he is or why he is wearing a beat-up tuxedo. Through a series of flashbacks, he remembers that he was sidetracked on his way to the prom the night before. In the meantime, he has to figure out what happened to his wallet, his car keys, his date, and why a pimp named “Tito” wants him dead. Written by Christine Sai-Halasz <sai@mit.edu> at imdb.com

There were some delightful facets of this film that young ladies and young gentlemen should enjoy. Number 1: The cute geek dancing, not terribly, to music by George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic with Miss Popular (although intoxicated and eventually stumbling over spilled liquor toward the end of the dance). Number 2: The cute geek rescuing Miss Popular from a supposedly menacing pimp and his street thug cronies. Number 3: And finally, the cute geek winning Miss Popular’s adulation and affection at the end of the film.

You don’t have to take my word for this being an enjoyable film. So, please feel free to read the Movie Review below:

“The film kept me interested through the end, and I enjoyed the diversion from the typical 80s teen comedy.” Written by Kevin Carr of 7M Pictures [Located at: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/night_before/]

Overall, this was a fun film from the 1980’s to watch. I am certain that many adolescent high school students have enjoyed it, and any who may view it (in future) may be entertained by it, as well. I, for one, simply adored watching those cute antics and babyface looks of Keanu Reeves in this film (not to mention, his glorious profile). Keanu Reeves always had a fantastic profile and attractive countenance, in my opinion, (as I am fond of letting him know); which is why I selected some of his best images from this film, “The Night Before”, to include within this particular Blog post. 

For those of you who are not aware, I am Miss Taffey Tawanna Champion. I am the Creator of this Blog, and Author of the Action Adventure/Futuristic Fantasy entitled, “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”. My main character (protagonist) is “Evian Magi”, and he represents the Mystic Fantasy Hero version of Keanu Reeves (since Keanu Reeves is my Special Muse and Inspiration for creating “The Mystery Alliance: Evian’s Saga”). You may purchase a copy of this E-Book via Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/Mystery-Alliance-Evians-Saga-ebook/dp/B01L0K28KS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1486693303&sr=8-2&keywords=the+mystery+alliance.

Thank you, emphatically, Keanu Reeves for being such a wonderfully genteel gentleman, and for being so very supportive and kind toward this little southern belle lady. Words cannot express what your support means to me. I could not have chosen a better Muse (or did you choose me? Haha!) And certainly, I thank GOD, so very abundantly, for all of Your extraordinary blessings which You bestow upon me. Have a Great week everyone, and Thanks for reading, in advance!
