Overheard at Table Two: Henry's Crime

Keanu's lame - this was such a miss of a movie.  Keanu was not really all that likable as the dullwitted toll attendant who gets sent up for a few years for getting roped into a bank robbery, and Vera Farmiga just plays a total witch - a bad actress with dreams of stardumb . . . well, now that I think of it, maybe she meant to play the love interest as someone who you really had to be completely thick-headed to love, so maybe it works, I dunno

I do have to say that James Caan was great as doing what James Caan always does, which is being the wisecracking old crumudgeony survivor.  

All in all though, this one was something really without any spark.  Fairly dull, but you could tell that maybe if it had been done by somebody, say, the Coen brothers, it could have been really fantastic.
