Coen Brothers Take on Old Hollywood

An epic and a musical,
a comedy, but that’s not all.
A Western and a drama too,
Hail, Caesar! tries so hard to do.

It takes us back to fifties flicks.
In many scenes it really clicks.
But plot is thin as it can be
and jumps around too hastily.

Channing Tatum’s dance just shines!
Gene Kelly’s work he surely mines.
George Clooney gets most of the laughs
as an actor a group kidnaps.

Josh Brolin’s character looms large.
Keeping stars in line, his charge.
And yet I wanted so much more
from Coen Brothers I adore.
