The Coens' Hollywood is an empire, where fraud is cheerful, natural, invisible - where people can live as they want to, so long as they don't trouble the system that keeps them employed. Everything goes fine there until the Commies show up.

Their latest, Hail, Caesar!, is their giddiest comedy to date, but it's also hit-and-miss within itself.

The Coen brothers' new comedy isn't quite an homage to 1950s Hollywood, but it's not a spoof of it either -- it strikes that tone of crisp drollness that's their specialty and that some people misread as aloofness or contempt. But it's not.

This is fairly amusing if you can get past the Coens' erasure of the anticommunist witch hunts, which destroyed hundreds of lives.

An unexpectedly sweet and utterly satisfying confection, a loving sendup of the Hollywood of yesteryear.

Not one of the Coens' major works, but it's a very enjoyable lark, especially for fans of old Hollywood.

As far as escapist fare goes, it's a pleasant offering, particularly for audiences tuned into its plentiful cinematic references.

Hail, Caesar! captures laughs from literal slapstick, insane imagery and witty banter. But all of it is under the moon of a fascinating argument about "faith" and art.

A great, big love letter to the Golden Age of Hollywood manages not only to showcase a plethora of old Hollywood genres, but also be all of them at once.

In the end, it was a mixed bag attempt at satire, not the great spoof I was hoping for. Still, some definite laughs, so not a total loss.
