The Ladykillers (2004)

Directed by Ethan Coen & Joel Coen
Starred Tom Hanks, Irma P. Hall, Marlon Wayans, J.K. Simmons, Tzi Ma, Ryan Hurst...
2004, United States, English with some Vietnamese dialogues.

A heist gang of 5, each dumber than another, is trying to pull a casino heist by masking themselves as musicians, when the gang leader rented a room from an old widow played by Irma P. Hall. But what happens, if the old lady discovers what they are up to?
American remake of British 1955 production, The Ladykillers is directed by Oscar winner directors, Coen Brothers, who are specialized on especially dark comedy and crime movies. The lead role belongs to Tom Hans, while the rest of the cast is completed with the actors such as Marlon Wayans, oscar winner J.K. Simmons, Tzi Ma, Ryan Hurst and Irma P. Hall. In brief, a promising team.
The result wasn't satisfying to me as a caper movie but wasn't bad for a comedy movie in general.
Irma P. Hall got a nomination in Sci-Fi Oscars, Saturn Awards, for Best Supporting Actress category, but lost to Daryl Hannah of Kill Bill: Volume 2. She won an important award for her performance though; Jury Prize in Cannes Film Festival. The movie was nominated for prestigious Palme D'Or in the same festival but lost to Fahrenheit 9/11.
No doubt that the movie is an interesting mixture by all means.
