... despite some minor grumbles, I was entertained by Henry's Crime.

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.

Really entertaining and a lot of fun.

This shaggy dog story just doesn't hold together, but Reeves charms as the deadpan hub of a wacky wheel...James Caan, as Henry's cellmate Max, is terrifically funny here, and he and Reeves are an unlikely but effective team.

Chekhov does small town USA in this zany, simmering slo-mo character driven retro-crime caper that plays out as a detour to an incidental bank heist, on the way to a softball game. Caan and Keanu are a strangely intoxicating match made in Buffalo.

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

Caan is the spicy mustard on this fatty corned beef sandwich of a movie; without him, Henry's Crime is a filling meal that wouldn't linger in the memory.

A deadpan delight, an unexpected treat..Satisfying and entertaining in ways that too few big-budget comedies (Arthur? Your Highness?) seem to know how to achieve.

[VIDEO] wonderful performances from James Caan, Vera Farmiga--and yes even--Keanu Reeves, are the reason to see this movie.

There's a certain ingenuity in the way the plot of Chekhov's play becomes interwoven with the robbery, but for the most part the producers seem to be aiming at, and almost achieving, MFI - maximum feasible implausibility.
January 18, 2011
The early promise of Henry's Crime wanes as its efforts to splice crime caper with backstage drama becomes increasingly laboured. But with the cast on their game, the film just about gets away with it.

While the supporting cast of James Caan and Vera Farmiga are in top form, the leading man looks like he's dosed up on Valium.

An offbeat comedy/drama elevated by another terrific Varmiga turn.

Witness a rare sighting, like an albatross over the Scottish highlands. It's Keanu Reeves, acting in The Cherry Orchard.

The stiff deadpan dudeness that is the Keanu method means he gathers dust while the supporting actors outclass him by miles...

January 13, 2011
Enjoyable, bittersweet comedy-drama that has a pleasingly old fashioned feel to it, thanks to an intelligent script, well written characters, impressive direction and a delightful performance from Vera Farmiga that's worth the price of admission alone.

Thanks to Reeves' co-stars and a little Chekhovian inspiration at the end, the film just about gets away with it.

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