Tom Hanks steps into Alec Guinness's shoes as the fiendish Professor Dorr in the Coen Brothers' hellzapoppin' revamp of the classic Ealing comedy. The location switches from smoggy London to sultry Mississippi with Hanks as the criminal mastermind who plans an audacious robbery from the home of an elderly lady. Posing as musicians while they tunnel into a bank vault, Dorr and his gang think they've got ol' Mrs Munson (Irma P Hall) duped. But she's a lot sharper than she looks. And they aren't.
