The Coen brothers make a spectacular return to the black comedy of their classic films in this "hilariously vulgar . . . farce" (St. Louis Post-Dispatch). With the arrival of G. H. Dorr III, PhD., unassuming residents of a sleepy delta town are in for a surprise--especially the God-fearing Marva Munson, a widow with an aversion to "hippety-hop music" and a room to let. By providing the villanous doctor with a bed and a cellar in which to practice his "church music," the landlady unwittingly provides Doctor and his motley crew of thieves with a place to plan the perfect heist. Perfect, that is, until she becomes suspicious . . .

The greatest criminal minds of all time finally meet their match in this, the Coen brothers riotous Deep South reinvention of Alexander Mackendrick s beloved 1955 Ealing comedy. Tom Hanks stars as Goldthwait Higginson Dorr, Ph.D., a charlatan professor who has assembled a motley crew of crooks to try and pull off the heist of the century.

The story they offer Mrs Munson is that they are a band of musicians in need of a place to practise their church music. But it fast becomes apparent that Dorr s gang - hippety-hop enthusiast Gawain MacSam, demolition expert Garth Pancake, Vietnamese ex-tunnel rat The General , and football jock Lump - may not be up to the mission at hand.
