SIMPLE SOLUTION:
On first keyframe create an empty keyframe with actionscript:

on (release, keyPress "<Enter>") {
     gotoAndPlay(3);
}

On second keyframe create an empty keyframe with actionscript:
gotoAndPlay(1);

On 3rd you start you movie or something.

---------
MORE advanced:

mykeyListener = new Object();
mykeyListener.onKeyDown = function () {
   if (Key.isDown(Key.CONTROL) and Key.isDown(Key.ENTER)) {
      gotoAndPlay(2)
   }
}
Key.addListener(mykeyListener);
stop();

Control and enter is a BAD combination -- that just starts the movie over.  You might want to think about something else, like:  CTRL + SHIFT

Try this:

var key:Object = new Object();
key.onKeyDown = function() {
      if (Key.isDown(Key.CONTROL) && Key.isDown(Key.SHIFT)) {
            _root.gotoAndStop(2)
      }
};
Key.addListener(key);
stop();
