The Ladykillers (2004) Movie Summary
When a crew of the FBI’s most wanted criminals rent rooms at a New Orleans bed and breakfast to carry out a very detailed and precise heist robbery, they realize that no amount of planning could take into account the elderly eccentric landlady who foils them at every turn. Tom Hanks has been cast as a thief in this film along with Marlon Wayans ('Scary Movie'). Dark comedy remake by the Coen Brothers ('Fargo', 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?'). Barry Sonnenfeld ('Men In Black', 'Get Shorty') serves as a producer on the project. This is a remake of the 1955 British Ealing comedy of the same name starring Sir Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers. Tom Hanks is playing the professor role that Guinness played in the original.

"I got blueberry syrup on my safari jacket."Coen Brothers' unconventional remake/homage of Alexander Mackendrick's 1955 film. Supposedly Disney was hoping for another "O Brother Where Art Thou," but ended up with this offbeat gem. At issue (amongst other things) was Tom Hanks playing a role counter to his more atypical and profitable roles. Despite and probably due to this, the film is an awesome testament to his brilliance. However, each performer pulls more than his or her weight, particularly a standout Marlon Wayans performance and J.K. Simmons as Garth Pancake. ... "We must all have waffles forthwith! We must all think, and we must all have waffles, and think each and every one of us to the very best of his ability... ".Score: 5/5
Underated Coens' BrothersI must say, I was pleasantly surprised by this one. O Brother was definitley not the best Coens' brothers movie, so I didn't expect this one to be. Tom Hanks is great, and the Coens' can write great characters..Score: 5/5
Not their bestI love most of the Coen's movies but this is far from their best. You'd be better served getting the original Alec Guiness version, It' much much much better.Score: 2/5
Funny, dark, unforgettable.I love Coen's movie for long time. Their movies always have strange smells inside. I love this one too..Score: 4/5
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS MOVIEThis is by far my favorite movie. It is a different sort of humor but I find it hilarious. When I first rented this movie, I watched it 3 times over the course of 2 days. Another thing that I love about it is that it is sort of short, which I think makes a good movie even better. You should definetly buy this movie..Score: 5/5
