Where are they now? Kenan

December 1, 2011

Many people have have seen Kenan Thompson around from the past few years.  In 2004, he starred in Fat Albert, a movie that was advertised a lot and I think is pretty well known but I don’t know if it was very successful.  On imdb.com, it has a rating of 4.1 but according to the same website, it had a worldwide gross of  $48,551,322.  I don’t know if that’s a lot in terms of worldwide movie gross but I feel like it probably is.  According to imdb.com, Avatar made $2,782,300,000, Couple’s Retreat made  $109,176,215, and Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny made $8,319,186.   So I figure Fat Albert did okay.  But I don’t that it will really be remembered.  I don’t think it really is right now.  Although I think it’s remembered more than the 2005 movie The Honeymooners based on the tv series, which has an imdb rating of 2.8 and grossed $12,834,056.  Anyway the movie was basically what I would call all show and no go whereas Kel on the other hand was in a straight to video release called Ganked that had a $50,000 budget but which he also has writing credits for.  Kenan’s writing credits consist of one Kenan and Kel episode.  Anyway, Kenan has since gone on to become a regular on Saturday Night Live which is a show that is pretty well known and iconic but how good is the show?   In my opinion, it’s not very good.

 

It’s my speculation that the show’s current success is based on its reputation and just how long it’s been around.

Kenan’s most recent project is acting in the new Rob Reiner movie, The Summer of Monte Wildhorn.  Here’s a description from imdb.com:  “In an effort to tap into his original talent, a wheelchair-bound author moves to a rural town, where he befriends a single mother and her three kids, who help reignite his passion for writing.”   From the summary, it looks like either Kenan is expanding from comedy or this movie’s gonna be real funny.

Tomorrow, I will talk more about Kel.
