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.

The Ladykillers Film Synopsis

Five oddball criminals planning a bank robbery rent rooms on a cul-de-sac from an octogenarian widow under the pretext that they are classical musicians.

HilariousI never thought Tom Hanks could play a criminal, but he did and he's pretty darn good, along with everybody else..Score: 5/5

The ladykillersThis is a Must, you want laugh nearly nonstop, then the lady killers is for you. Ton Hanks hasn't lost his touch in pleasing his fans. One funny movie!!!.Score: 5/5

"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

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.

El «professor» Marcus i els seus còmplices, fent-se passar per músics, lloguen una habitació a la vella Sra. Wilberforce, per preparar el robatori d'una transferència de fons a l'estació propera. Aconsegueixen el cop, però són descoberts per la senyora. Decideixen llavors eliminar-la, però això és més aviat difícil...

Český
Černá kriminální komedie Pět lupičů a stará dáma patří mezi nejpopulárnější snímky studia Ealing. Její zápletka se točí okolo pěti mužů, kteří si najmou celé patro u excentrické paní Wilberforceové, aby měli klid k vybroušení svého vystoupení. Nebohá paní vůbec netuší, že nejde o smyčcový kvintet, ale kriminálníky plánující loupež.

Deutsch
Um einen Überfall auf einen Geldtransporter zu planen, mietet sich Professor Marcus zusammen mit seinen kriminellen Freunden bei Mrs. Wilberforce ein. Unter dem Vorwand, es handle sich bei ihnen um ein Streicherquintett, genießen sie die Abgeschiedenheit des Hauses. Als Mrs. Wilberforce den Ganoven aber auf die Schliche kommt, gilt es, sie loszuwerden. Zu dumm nur, dass die Räuber ihre Vermieterin schon längst ins Herz geschlossen haben…

Όταν αυτή αντιλαμβάνεται πως κάτι τρέχει, η συμμορία αποφασίζει να την δολοφονήσει.

Le commissariat de police de la petite ville de Richmond a l'habitude de la visite de Margaret Wilberforce, veuve d'un officier de marine, complètement mythomane. Un jour, le digne professeur Marcus loue une chambre à la vieille dame où, tous les soirs, il répète avec ses amis musiciens un menuet de Boccherini. En réalité, ils préparent le hold-up du siècle.

Petorica kriminalaca namjeravaju opljačkati oklopno vozilo iz banke koje prevozi veliku svotu novca. Za mjesto pripreme odaberu sobicu koju iznajmljuje starija gospođa, udovica Wilberforce, kojoj su rekli da su amaterski glazbenici koji moraju vježbati. No, starica slučajno otkrije njihov pravi plan tako da jedino što im preostaje jest riješiti je se.

Italiano
Una vecchia, simpatica signora inglese prende a pigione un sinistro individuo e i suoi quattro amici che stanno preparando una rapina e che, scoperti, progettano di eliminarla. Due dei più distinti attori inglesi in questa celeberrima e un po' sopravvalutata commedia Ealing, in bilico tra satira e parodia, attraente nel suo impasto di umorismo nero che stinge nel rosa. Scritta da William Rose. Si dice che il prof. Marcus di A. Guinness fosse modellato sull'aspetto fisico del celebre critico e saggista Kenneth Tynan che allora lavorava alla Ealing come consulente letterario.

Кто же знал, что под видом почтенных граждан струнного квинтета скрываются грабители, обдумывающие очередной гоп-стоп. Дельце выгорает, и с украденным они являются в дом миссис Уилберфорс. По просьбе профессора старушка соглашается вывезти его «багаж» с вокзала, не подозревая, что он набит награбленной наличностью. Получив деньги и распрощавшись с милой старушкой, преступники покидают её дом. Однако при захлопывании двери случается несуразная мелочь — и старушка понимает, что её жилец ведёт нечестную игру. Посчитав старушку ненужным свидетелем, они решают её убить, но исполнить это не так-то просто...
