Original Remake: The Ladykillers 1955 and 2004


For all of our podcast valentines out there we present A Very Problematic Episode on how to lie, cheat, steal, and manipulate your way to success with the ladies. To do so, we of course don't share any actual life experience but take in a double feature of the 1955 LADYKILLERS starring Alec Guinness and the 2004 Coen brothers remake starring Tom Hanks. We look at not only the cultural differences between the English and American versions, but also how the 2004 version would be received in 2016. And of course some Batman and James Bond talk with guest Derek Stewart because... hashtags.
