Tom Hanks and filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen team up for the crime of the century in the quirky, laugh-out-loud, smash hit The Ladykillers. Featuring a hilarious supporting cast and packed with non-stop laughs and outrageous high jinks, The Ladykillers is nothing less than drop-dead funny.
Another dissapointing movie from the Coen's

How the men who gave us original classics like 'Fargo', 'The man who wasn't there' and 'The Big Lebowski', can resort to making a rehash of an old Ealing comedy is beyond me. In their quest for mainstram success the Coen's have slipped into lazy film making that tries to be everything to everyone, and ends up being nothing short of dull. The Ladykillers is a film lacking the suspense, comedy and superb acting of the 50's original. While Alec Guinness must be spinning in his grave, lets hope Joel and Ethan Coen can get their act together and make a movie befitting their their past efforts.
