Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Hail, Caesar! won't be remembered as one of the Coen Brothers' masterpieces. An homage to Hollywood of the 1950s, this is more of a niche film than a mainstream offering. The absence of a strong narrative is the film's weakest aspect.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent ...an exhilarating switchup: A comic fable that's both deftly clever and irrepressibly goofy. It is also, from stem to stern, the sweetest and sunniest film the Coens have ever made.

NY Post Full Review
Good What really makes "Hail, Caesar!” sing are the Coens' painstaking period simulations of scenes from five films... "Hail, Caesar!” is not one of the Coens' major works, but it's a very enjoyable lark, especially for fans of old Hollywood.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good ...a wild whoosh of Coen brothers wizardry that left me laughing helplessly and filled with spiritual dread. That's the Coens for you. ...their film never loses its exhilarating buoyancy. ...the Coens pull it off in style. They're indispensable.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 66 moviegoers:
As is common with most Coen Brothers movies, the critics love it but most moviegoers don't. This one is certainly no different.
TEENS: Mediocre reviews from the males and decent reviews from the females.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The lone male only rated it "average." As for the females, one loved it, two rated it "above average" and the last one rated it "below average."
ADULTS: Compared to the exceptional critic reviews, these moviegoers reviews very low. It's rare to see so few reviews of "fantastic" or "excellent." Only a small percentage loved "Hail, Ceasar!" A large percentage felt it was only an "average" to "below average" movie. What's exceptionally rare is the large percentage of "poor" and "terrible" reviews, especially considering the all star cast.
