Consensus: Supporting actors Vera Farmiga and James Caan give the movie a little heft, but Henry's Crime is an otherwise predictable heist/comedy with slow pacing.

Moira MacDonald
Seattle Times

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

Washington Post

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

Mike Russell
Oregonian

The film feels a bit enervated, even when the script asks it to fly off the rails toward the end.

Arizona Republic

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

Ty Burr
Boston Globe

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.

Kelly Vance
East Bay Express

The screenplay leeches all the fun out of it, and the principals - aside from Caan, who generates his own power - seem lost and abandoned.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

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

Los Angeles Times

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

A good, old-fashioned, bank caper. A surprisingly solid performance from Keanu Reeves as the Casper Milktoast, Henry, makes this a very watchable treat. Vera… More
