This week after our descent into the Breenpocalypse (seriously check episode 267 for our therapy session) we needed a serious pallete cleanser. For us that came in the form of the 2004 film, The Ladykillers. Deridded by critics and fans of the often celebrated Cohen Brothers, this remake of the 1955 british comedy about criminals robbing a casino by tunnelling through an elderly woman's basement is chock full of so many off the wall and darkly comedic moments. From the need for waffles, Tom Hank's doing his best Foghorn Leghorn impression, to a yet to be super famous J.K Simmons stealing scenes as the demolition expert with IBS, Garth Pancake.
But does this movie deserve the hate or is this an under appreciated gem that has grown better with age? We'll find out today!
