When a crew of the FBI’s most wanted criminals rent rooms at a New Orleans bed and breakfast to carry out a very detailed and precise heist robbery, they realize that no amount of planning could take into account the elderly eccentric landlady who foils them at every turn. Tom Hanks has been cast as a thief in this film along with Marlon Wayans ('Scary Movie'). Dark comedy remake by the Coen Brothers ('Fargo', 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?'). Barry Sonnenfeld ('Men In Black', 'Get Shorty') serves as a producer on the project. This is a remake of the 1955 British Ealing comedy of the same name starring Sir Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers. Tom Hanks is playing the professor role that Guinness played in the original.




  • This is ont of the worst films ever made

    I have a collection of around 1,500 movies. This ranks among the bottom five. It was so bad that I threw it in the trash.
  • True southern gentleman

    By lordsuckulant
    Tom Hanks was a true southern gentleman. The supporting cast was hilarious . I used to work at a casino in the courtroom, it was a good premise to break into land based courtroom so it was believable.
  • This stuff is totally inert, why you cab hit it a hammer.....

    By Alan701
    A classic, the entire cast was born to make this movie. Really love "Pickles" the cat. How they got that to pose and do the thing it does is beyound me. The Coen's deserved an award for the Ladykillers.

  • bad seed

    By TheAnnelie
    well, the movie was great so far, Tom Hanks plays the part of a crook wonderfully and I would have loved to see the rest of it! why on earth does Itunes allow a bad seed that stops the movie around 50 minutes?? It wont let me go past the issue so I just wasted my money.
  • 40min left and we hit "Delete".

    By Therefromhere
    For some reason I thought this would be a combo of Fargo, Big Lebowski, Oh Brother, etc.... and it was, but it just didn't work. Tom Hanks' character was so contrived and the acting so forced we couldn't watch any longer. 40min left on the movie and we hit "Delete".

  • Not Watch-worthy!

    By Puzer
    This was most definitly the worst movie I have ever seen. I Have seen several movies, and among my favorites are Pulp Fiction and The Matrix, but this movie was horrible. There was no plot, and if there was, I'm sorry i didn't see it. This movie was not funny.
  • iTunes needs to get the Alec Guinness version!

    By Hitchcock103
    I did not like this version of the lady killers at all! iTunes should start getting more classsic films starting with the original Ladykillers.
