By pretending to be musicians trying out their instruments, the man and his cronies really want to rob a casino.
They dig a tunnel from the house to the vault where the money is deposited until the heist day arrives.
But the money‘s temptation will turn them against each other, and the gentlewoman’s life will also be in danger.
The Ladykillers is a hilarious heist movie with many intriguing characters, each with its own temperament, weaknesses, and stupidity.
Tom Hanks, irresistible as the gang’s leader as a gentleman with a refined speech, brings out the best from the cast’s rest.
