5.0 out of 5 stars BrownPolar Verdict, 8 Oct. 2012
This review is from: The Ladykillers [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
Interestingly evocative of `O' Brother Where Art Thou', this hilarious and light hearted parody of the staunchly religious life of ordinary folk in the American deep south is another testament to Coen Brothers' love for the humorous characterisation of common people under bizarre circumstances.

Predictably shunned by the critics as just "funny and enjoyable, but disappointing for Coens' standards", this is yet another example which proves that the two brothers make films for the sheer joy of it rather than to please anyone, let alone the critics, who usually find Coen films bewilderingly difficult to analyse, label and categorise to please themselves as they usually do!

Exquisitely crafted with the use of thoughtfully and painstakingly constructed sets, with imaginative imagery that Roger Deakins effortlessly captures form the very first frame to the last, and with spirited and satisfying contributions from the cast, `The Lady Killers' is as refreshing and heartrending as a summer breeze, while being uproariously funny at the same time.
