The film offers several big laughs, some of which are so outrageous, audiences will likely be talking about them after the show.

Enjoyable Coen caper, enlivened by a strong comic performance by Tom Hanks.

Even a less-than-spec Coen movie is a good deal better than the aimless, guileless pap cranked out by mere mortals.

'Frankly, this doesn't have that Coen magic.'

Hanks is a beautiful vintage cartoon of a southern dandy, planted amidst modern Mississipean miscreants of all shades. Hall is a treasure.

It might get a little indiscernible at times, but the laughs and guffaws are there, and there's nobody like the Coens working today who can balance such a peculiar picture so impeccably.

The Coens appropriate their caricatures to serve a greater payoff: The Ladykillers is devised as a morally corrupt treatment of moral corruption.

The Coens play gleefully with death--accidental, deliberate, fatalistic--while catching us off-guard with startlingly funny touches when we least expect them.

...a bit hit and miss as far as the Coens are concerned, but I daresay Hanks has never been so delicious.

The Ladykillers just feels indulgent, without imparting any notion of whom it might be indulging. Everyone in it looks as though they're punching a timecard.

... The Coen Brothers have crafted what may be their funniest film.

It is worth watching just to see Hanks chewing into a juicy, throwaway comic role.

[Feels] like Hollywood execs are trying to get the Coen brothers to cash in on formulas that have proven profitable rather than letting them play.
April 9, 2004
The Coens have once again crafted a magical look at the Deep South.

[Directors Joel and Ethan Coen] aren’t for everyone, but those who like their offbeat material will discover a new gem here.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
April 8, 2004
The talented but increasingly eccentric Coen Brothers always walk a tightrope between the brilliantly offbeat and movies that are swallowed up by their idiosyncratic mindset

...nowhere near the Coens' funniest or most distinctive or even most endearing work.
