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.

This is one of the best-cast films I've seen in a long time.

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.

Exciting and perplexing at once.

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

Everybody in and around this movie is trying too hard.

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.

It is neither terrible nor terrific, just... unnecessary.

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

...easily my least favorite Hanks performance.

'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.
