We gave it a C

Henry (Keanu Reeves) goes to prison for a bank heist he didn’t pull. Then Henry decides to rob for real (with help from James Caan as a fellow ex-con). Next Henry performs Chekhov on stage, both because it’s part of his heist plan and ? because of an attractive actress (Vera Farmiga). This (Henry’s Crime) picaresque caper might do well as a novel, but as a movie — ?assembled with no consistent sense of moviemaking, each performer left to ? his or her own actorly whims — it’s a ? grab bag of comic clichés about bank robberies and regional theater.
