Synopsis

"The Ladykillers" is the story of an eccentric southern professor, G.H. Dorr III who assembles a band of less than competent thieves to rob the Bandit Queen, a Mississippi riverboat casino. As a base of operations, he rents a room from an unsuspecting, very straight-laced, church-going little old lady, Mrs. Munson and introduces his gang as a musical ensemble in need of practice space. Dorr's quintet includes casino "inside man" Gawain, demolitions expert Garth Pancake, tunnel expert The General and brute force expert Lump. When Mrs. Munson discovers their tunnel to the casino vault in her cellar and threatens to notify the authorities, someone has to stop her. Through a series of misadventures Dorr's henchmen find they are no match for her and one by one prove to be more dangerous to themselves that to her.
