The Ladykillers

ladykillersNot as wacky as I would have hoped from the creators of Raising Arizona. Some very fine moments, and it's good to see Tom Hanks in a comedy again (I'm still waiting for The Money Pit 2 to go into production). J.K. Simmons is one of my favorite character actors. I am quick to give Messrs. Coen & Coen extra credit considering they've released four films in less than four years: Their last movie, Intolerable Cruelty, debuted less than six months before this film.
