The bank used in the movie, Buffalo Savings Bank, is an actual bank in Buffalo, NY. Its construction was completed in 1901, just in time for the Pan-Am Exposition being held in Buffalo that same year. It is now home to a branch office of M&T Bank. See more »
Are you kidding me? This is your plan? An old cartoon in a pissoir?
It's a start.
No, this is 80 years ago. Wait. I tell you what we do. We do it the old-fashioned way.
We go in with guns.
Someone could get hurt.
That's very sweet of you, Henry.

I didn't know what to expect when I saw the film first at the Toronto Film Festival. But I was very surprised to see Keanu Reeves in a non action special effects film. Henry's Crime is a perfect role for Reeves. I was also blown away by James Caan and Vera Farmiga. Both give standout performances worth of wards.
The film is a funny heist story with a twist of romantic comedy. It doesn't go over the top, but it is a fun ride and makes you feel all warm and fuzzy at the end. Not quite a chick flick, but a good date movie as both men and women will appreciate the cast and the storyline.
Other great cast mentions are Fisher Stevens as a conniving partner in crime and Bill Duke as a helpful security guard.
The script is clever and the music is eclectic. I can't see anyone not enjoying the fun and funny film. Highly recommended!
