About the Movie
With a terrific cast led by Keanu Reeves, Vera Farmiga and a splendid James Caan, HENRY’S CRIME is a fun comedy with irresistible heist and heart. Reeves stars as Henry Torne, a wrongly accused man who winds up behind bars for a bank robbery he didn’t commit. After befriending a charismatic lifer (Caan) in prison, Henry finds his purpose — having done the time, he decides he may as well do the crime. But his outlandish plan to rob the very same bank spins wildly out of control, as he finds himself performing in a stage play and falling in love with the production’s seductive leading lady (Farmiga).

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Its mood is so muffled and point so submerged, it's difficult to see why Mr. Reeves and the rest of the cast pooled their talents to make a movie about a nowhere man going no place in particular in Buffalo.
Rotten: It's a
grab bag of comic cliches about bank robberies and regional theater.
Rotten: The film's ungainly mix of heist, romance and backstage comedy never jells.
Fresh: If "Henry's Crime'' is occasionally too pleased with itself, it's also pleasantly unpredictable, and it has a trio of sweet hambone performances at its center.
Quirky is better than cute
Good romantic comedies are hard to come by. A good deal of RCs are played out near carbon copies with the actors swapped out. This had a new take and it made me realize that quirky can be better than cute. The charcters play well on the screen and I love the oh so light tinge of dark humor that pops up here and there.
