Movie Moods: The Ladykillers


Despite my love for the Coens, I hated The Ladykillers (2004) so much that I walked out on it with about 20 minutes left. I don't EVER do that. Alas, the movie fits my mood for the morning.

Professor G.H. Dorr (Tom Hanks): "Madam, we must have waffles! We must all have waffles forthwith!"

There's a brand-new waffle maker sitting in the kitchen, and I'm about to make me some waffles for breakfast! Mmm mmm.

In the spirit of waffles... it HAS been 4 years - I think it's about high time I gave The Ladykillers another chance.

It is definitely one of the Coen Brothers' least successful films, but it isn't nearly as awful as their last Clooney comedy, Intolerable Cruelty. Ladykillers has the benefit of great gospel music, some wonderful supporting performances, and a few sizable laughs. Hanks, however is totally miscast.

It has it's amusing points. But I far prefer the original.
