An intermittently entertaining comedy/drama with a funny script and a fatal miscasting.

Go for Caan and Farmiga, and stay to be surprised by Reeves.

What's needed is someone nervous to play Henry. A Steve Buscemi, for example. Reeves maintains a sort of Zen detachment.

A felony of a movie ... tedious and improbable...

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.

The film's ungainly mix of heist, romance and backstage comedy never jells.

"Henry's Crime" is a movie that eschews the details and tries to get by on charm, and it does have charm - just not enough to get by.

Keanu Reeves gives an adroit turn in this pleasantly deadpan caper.

Reeves seems more laid-back than loser - it's hard to accept him as someone who has let half of his adult life go to waste without minding, or even noticing.

Though the movie has some engagingly quirky moments, everything falls into place far too easily for much suspense to build, and the romance between the two leads seems as contrived as everything else.

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.

It's a grating muddle, typified by Reeves as a protagonist who's so frustratingly vapid that even the other characters seem baffled at his blankness.

It's a 
 grab bag of comic clichés about bank robberies and regional theater.

Henry's Crime has a little too much in common with its aimless namesake.

You wish anyone on either side of the camera had a cup of coffee and then the energy to throw out weak scenes and flawed motivations while picking up the pace.

Farmiga radiates warmth and Caan hasn't had a role this meaty since 'Misery'. A quiet triumph.

Mixing a bank raid with a stage romp becomes just too silly.

Part of what makes Henry such a frustrating hero is how little he reveals of his emotions.
