Keanu Reeves in “Life Underwater”!

Image result for taffey tawanna championHello, and Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s blog! Are any of you familiar with one of the early films within Keanu Reeves’ film repertoire entitled, “Life Under Water”? Well, I am familiar with it, and I am going to make it the focal topic of discussion this week.

This Keanu Reeves’ film was one within The American Playhouse series during the 1980’s. Keanu portrays “Kip”, a rather aimless young man that lives under the thumb of his mother, who appears to be an irresponsible parent; yet, controlling at the same time. So, he makes a valiant attempt to start taking charge of his own life.

Storyline: “Young man, who can’t get along with the rest of the world, especially his mother, decides to try to take his life in his own hands.” Written by an anonymous writer via

Life Under Water” has been given 6.4 out of 10 stars via; as a matter of interest.

It was quite surprising to witness Keanu Reeves starring alongside Sarah Jessica Parker, who portrays the character, “Amy-Beth”, I must say. Not only that, but watching the two of them in some rather cosy and intimate scenes together was interesting. The “Amy-Beth” character initially appeared to unfairly resent him and his presence, for no apparent reason; as though he was a burden on both her and her girlfriend, “Amy-Joy” (who invited him to stay with them while they each took care of the house and children of a wealthy family during the summer months).

Now, toward the end of this film, the character, “Amy-Joy”, portrayed by actress Haviland Morris, appeared to have pulled a fast-one (as is often said) on them both. It was obvious in the beginning of this film that “Amy-Joy” was very attracted to, and interested in “Kip” herself; which is why she, herself, extended the invitation to him. So, eventually she seems to get jealous of the growing relationship between “Kip” and “Amy-Beth”, and decides to come in between them.

It is unclear whether “Amy-Joy” and “Kip” actually engage in sexual intercourse, but it does appear that they skinny-dipped together. And immediately afterward, she sends him into the living room (where she knows “Amy-Beth” is), in order for “Amy-Beth” to see him in a state of undress; beguilingly nude, of course. And the “Amy-Beth” character looks so crushed when he enters the room, that you must feel sorry for her.

Yet, let’s get real for a few moments here. This character “Kip” is a very young man (perhaps less than 20 years old), is confused about where he is going in life, uncertain how to get there, and feels that he is severely lacking in his mother’s parental support. Now, these aspects are quite a lot on a young man’s plate. So, even though he initially professed some feelings toward the “Amy-Beth” character, these feelings were sexual in nature; more than anything else.

Young adolescent women or those in their early 20’s seem to forget that very young males are not ready for deep or serious commitments until they are much older (for the majority of the time). I do empathize with her disillusionment, but sometimes a young lady just needs to get real. In the end, he ended up right back with his mother to work on sorting himself out. But, to give the “Kip” character credit, he did appear to feel guilty about having hurt her feelings. And overall, I must admit that this was a very entertaining film to watch. Therefore, please feel free to watch it, if any of you are interested in doing so.
