I keep waiting to see Keanu do somethings else other than dish out dull, monosyllabic utterances that are supposed to be taken as some sort of ground-breaking wisdom. He fails to rise up and grab any opportunity for display of emotion even when goaded to by the play's director (for example) and as a person who falls in love well, he leaves you speechless. The comedic elements such as they were remained ungrasped by Reeves and just slip on by. James Caan, of course is fantastic and gives a very creditable performance as an ex-con and ex- con man. What a role that would be for him as the lead actor!. Vera Farmiga is a delight once I got over the idiocy of her character driving and talking phone at the same time. The plot was pretty dreadful really and it boggles me to think that someone actually spent time coming up with such drivel. What was it about? A bank heist? A play? Falling in love? Jail time? None of it was given much depth.
