Generally unfunny caper comedy abut a collection of crooks attempting a casino heist. Tom Hanks does elevate the movie thanks to a very rare villainous turn as the criminal mastermind. Irma P. Hall has such a warm sweet screen presence, she's perfectly fine. It's a funny take on his nice guy persona. There are moments of brutal dark humor that fit the tone of a Coen brothers movie. But there is way too much flatulent and sex related humor that comes across as plain crass.

The cast of characters were great for this version of the movie.It was OK but it doesnt even come close to comparing to the original.I expected Tom Hanks character to be my favorite out of this film but I liked J.K. Simmons & Marlon Wayans characters much better.Irma P. Hall's character was the best out of them all.I don't understand why The Coen Brothers felt the need to do a remake

Not the best of the Coen Brother's comedies, but it's still slightly enjoyable. Each of the ensemble gets their moment in and the story is well told. Only for Coen Bros. fans.
