Mini Review - Hail, Caesar!

Hail, Caesar! (out Feb 25) is a goofy crime caper set against the backdrop of 1950s Hollywood. There are more than enough laughs but the premise lacks the entertaining complexity that I fondly remember from other Coen Brothers movies. Some cast members don't even require a wardrobe change (their roles are tiny) but Josh Brolin is terrific in the lead. Grade: B.
