Hanks is looser and funnier than he has been in quite some time.

The Ladykillers is small and compact -- it doesn't kill, it's just a doodle -- but it's a very pleasant cartoon for grown-ups. It's some sweet fodder.

Despite cartoonish characters, over-the-top hijinks, and occasional lapses of bad taste, any movie that leaves you laughing up the aisle, has to remain well-recommended.

The story, adapted by the Coens themselves, is reduced to a series of hoops the characters must jump through to prove just how strange they are.

While being far from the Coens' finest hour, it remains more intelligent and ambitious than most of what currently passes for Hollywood mainstream comedy.

Good but not great, The Ladykillers is simple, somewhat funny and 'nothing more.'

The picture ranks with the brothers' best mid level output.

The Coen Brothers remake of The Ladykillers is a half-baked mess.

... second-tier Coen brothers ... technically excellent and never less than entertaining, it doesn't arrest and stun the way Miller's Crossing or Fargo or Raising Arizona did.

That sophisticated stride that made [the Coen Brothers'] first run of films so remarkable has here degenerated into a sophomoric stumble.

Maclean's Magazine

Increasingly, the Coens seem more intent on amusing themselves than the audience. And while they deliver some laughs, it feels like a smug exercise in showing off everything but heart.

The Ladykillers contains several gross errors of judgment that must have given the Coens at least some degree of hesitation at some point in the filmmaking process.

It's both lowdown and effete, a jamboree of whoopee jokes and sick wit.
