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).

Critics 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.

Rotten

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

Common Sense Says
Aside from language, so-so caper comedy is fine for teens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that except for this caper comedy's frequent strong language (including "f--k," "s--t," "p---y," and more), there's nothing here that would demand an R rating. There are several love scenes, but they're handled with restraint -- there's no nudity and no actual activity other than kissing and embracing. The few action sequences are brief, generally mild fights (in one, a man wields a gun, and a shot is fired), and the substance use isn't at all over the top, either -- a woman smokes one cigarette, a couple of beers are consumed, and a character seems drunk in one scene and vomits in two others. That said, it's not all that likely to be a movie that's high on kids' radar anyway.
