It is not the blockbuster the (Coen) brothers hanker after, and it is not going to be a critical success, but, for me, it is the best comedy they have managed.

Some wicked pleasures for mature teens and adults.

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.

Exciting and perplexing at once.

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

The Coens have found their stride again.

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.

Si buscan cine de culto esta definitivamente no es la opcin, pero no por ello deja de ser divertida en momentos.
