The Coen Brothers are back with a movie about old time Hollywood.  Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill and Newman (Wayne Knight) star.  The premise: Eddie Mannix (Brolin) is a movie exec trying to keep the studio’s various secrets spilling out while keeping up production.  When their star is kidnapped, he has to get him back.

A solid Coen Brothers entry, but not mind-blowing.  Probably too many elements to digest in the plot, but it does come together.  The ending is kinda funny, but ultimately anti-climatic.  Could’ve been funnier or weirder or had more action, but still solid.  I don’t know, maybe my expectations were too high.  Still, worth seeing.  50/50 in a theater, but definitely by rental.  The movie also includes one of the gayest scenes ever created in cinema.

I give Hail, Caesar! 7 out of 10 keggers.
