Okay, this is where the cracks start to show a little. The humour is there, but it doesn't ring out as much as it should. I'm expecting something punchy and blunt to hit me in the face, and yet I just keep getting these snippets of random humour which, while they are cute, aren't laugh out loud funny. I would expect a little more exploration of the ridiculous truth behind this, or the blurring of the lines between the actor and the roles he plays.
Breaking it down a little
Too long, and it takes away some of the effect of the punchlines further into the piece. Keep it short and to the point, and leave the bigger jokes to be found later on. Also try to not deviate from reality into comic reality too soon. The intro should more or less be as truthful as you can make it, although throwing in the fact that Keanu uses the word dude constantly - or something else to set up the comic pretext - would be a good idea.
This is well done. Keeping it as truthful as possible while pointing out that he is ripe for ridicule. The only issue that I have here is the inclusion of Captain Oblivious. The level of humour you get out of a stale joke is destroyed more or less by the fact that stale jokes are, in fact, stale. I groaned a little when I read this as I was afraid that you had fallen back on Chuck Norris type references where they didn't belong. Have a look at HTBFANJS#Avoid Stagnant Jokes. Glenn Benton should also be added to this list, by the way.
The only thing that I would like to see in here that I feel is missing is Dangerous Liaisons and Much ado about nothing. Whenever I watch either of those movies I keep expecting him to break out and say "dude" every five seconds. The idea of having Ted as the evil Don John who is plotting and scheming to take down his brother, Denzel Washington, I think is hysterical. And also a guy carrying around a surfboard in snowy 18th century France while trying to sleep with an aristocrats daughter...
I'd change the book title to Philosophising, dude or Whoa, philosophising. I'd also get rid of the quotes all together. They're good, but they don't really feel like they belong in the article. Keep the link to the Unquotable:Keanu Reeves though.
The Mensa section and the Assault section are okay. The Kung-fu section fails dismally. The only thing I can think of to improve this to to change it to some form of delusion, where he has watched himself play in his own movies for so long that he believes that he is a gestalt entity comprising of Ted and Neo, where he was admitted into hospital, stark naked, screaming "Whoa! I know Kung Fu!" Or something to that effect. Personally I would just axe this altogether unless you make his claim to know Kung Fu as a running joke throughout.
