Editorial Reviews

THE LADYKILLERS: Academy Award(R)-winner Tom Hanks (Best Actor, FORREST GUMP, 1994; PHILADELPHIA, 1993) turns in a hilariously original performance in THE LADYKILLERS. Underneath Professor G.H. Dorr's (Hanks) silver-tongued southern gentleman persona is a devious criminal who's assembled a motley gang of thieves to commit the heist of the century by tunneling through his churchgoing landlady's root cellar to a casino's vault of riches. But these cons are far from pros. As their scheme begins blowing up in their faces, their landlady smells a rat. And when she threatens to call the police, they figure they'll just bump her off. After all, how hard can that be?~~NOTHING TO LOSE: This hugely funny action-comedy hit stars big screen favorites Martin Lawrence (BAD BOYS) and Tim Robbins (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION). Advertising executive Nick Beam (Robbins) has completely bottomed out. His career is a mess, his marriage is on the rocks...and a fast-talking, would-be carjacker (Lawrence) has just jumped into his car! So what does he do? Nick throws common sense out the window and turns the tables on his captor! Soon this mismatched pair speeds off on a comical crime spree that includes holdups, high-speed chases, and revenge!

Format:DVD
Ever since I first watched this film a couple years ago, I have been amazed at the bad rap it has gotten. It is just about lost as an entry in the Coen Brothers' formidable body of work, and yet I believe it is unjustly condemned. Many people do not see past the crude one-liners and stereotyped characters into the visual poetry and subtle irony that make it funny on a completely different level from the one that floats on the surface (like the barge that carries the trash of the town to the allegorically mythical "garbage island" in the movie).

For one thing, I really enjoyed the "Seven Samurai" method of gathering the caper gang, with the individual introductions showcasing not their strengths but their unique foibles and own personal brands of idiocy to be concentrated once they are gathered into Tom Hanks' professorial circle of "musician" thieves. On one hand, they work well together, their ostensible reasons for hiring being their professed qualifications; but as their acquaintances deepen, the broad individual comedy becomes syncretic and we are treated to the amusing spectacle of a bungling ex-hippie liberal civil rights activist spouting his old left-wing dogma to a modern gangsta black man who just doesn't give a crap "because I don't vote." The resumes are delicately presented by Hanks' too-genteel Professor Dorr; I guffawed when he introduced "The General" (Tzi Ma in a wonderfully understated and yet physically deft performance reminiscent of W.C. Fields or a dachshund-take your pick) as a man with "massive tunneling experience in the jungles of Southeast Asia," thus suggesting the Viet Cong without coming out and saying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remake? Mainstream? So what - it is a great fun: April 15, 2007
By Galina
Format:DVD
I could not stop laughing and enjoyed it tremendously. Tom Hanks was simply delightful pretending to be refined, highly educated, charmingly polite and smooth talking Rococo music lover Professor G.H.Darr who in reality was a very dangerous, ruthless and devious criminal that assembled the most hilarious gang of thieves (each has his special talent) to dig the tunnel through his landlady's root cellar to a casino vault and to steal 1.6 million dollars. As good as Hanks was, he was completely upstaged by Irma Hall who steals the movie as Marva. She received many awards for her acting and very deservingly. I know that many Coens' fans don't like The Ladykillers because
1. it is a remake of the 1955 movie with the same title and
2. because it is one of their most mainstream films.
I don't care - "The Ladykillers" has Coens' signatures all over - it is very funny, very dark, and uniquely beautiful visually - just remember the opening scene with two scary gargoyles and the garbage barge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertainment AND Art April 25, 2004
(...)For background:I have seen Ladykillers 3 times(...), I am not really a Coen Brothers fan, and I am not really a Tom Hanks fan. And even after all that, I still think that Ladykillers is the most well-thought out comedy in a long time. The factor that I most hate with comedies today, is that dialogue never seems to be a key factor, but rather someone falling on their a**. In Ladkillers, the dialogue of Tom Hanks' character is brilliant. Now, people who did not like the movie because of "sterotypical" characters, were most likely referring to Mr. Wayans character, who, to be honest, does follow suit of the overused violent, vulgar, "gangsta" black man archetype, though he is excellant at playing the character. The other stereotypical character is Lump, who is a overly moronic football player. Other than that, the story, characters, filmwork, dialogue, and most notably, the music are all brilliant and beautifully put together. Speaking of the music, I should point out that all the music is either gospel or gospel-like rap from the Nappy Roots, this is to match Ima P. Hall's character and the fact that the gang of thieves are posing as a gospel-inspired enemble. Please, for once, I'd like to see a GOOD comedy do well, not to insult American Pie and Eurotrip and Old School, etc (all of which I did enjoy), but di*k and fart jokes aren't what I consider "smart comedy", which is usually well-thought out comedy [ie Futurama and The Simpsons(even though I now hate The Simpsons]. Go see this, please. Cause, c'mon at least it's better than Zoolander or Johnson Family Vacation or You Got Served.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm always a bit surprised (though not totally) when movies that I find to be extremely funny or worthwhile are trashed by so many reviewers. That's the case with this film: I own it and have watched it many times and it seems to improve with each viewing. This folks, is a very funny movie and Tom Hanks is great, as are--not surprisingly, considering the Coen Bros gift for casting--virtually all of the actors in this film.

The film is, very briefly, the story of a small band of incompetent thieves who decide to try and fleece a floating casino in Mississippi. The plot may be a little thin, but it's a good enough premise to keep you watching. What shines in this film is the dialog and the acting. The opening scene of the film, of an old woman going to the local police department, not to complain about the loud music of a local kid's boom box, but to ask the sheriff to help the kid, is just hilarious. The cops are napping on the job, the woman is all fired up with good Christian intentions and the actress (I don't know her name offhand) delivers an extremely funny line about rap music that I won't spoil.

The rest of the film just follows the the robbers on their journey into crime and, again, while the plot is a bit thin, the actors (and, in particular, Tom Hanks) are absolutely enjoyable.

If you're looking for a funny film for a hot summer night, you'll like this. The negative reviews seem so hostile you'd think the movie cost a few hundred bucks. Hey, you can get a used copy for a buck or two: if you hate it, you've got a coaster at the very least or you can donate it to a local book sale. But my guess is that you'll come away thinking you've discovered an under-appreciated comic treasure.

This is a very funny and fun movie.
