Spoof movies are financially viable on the big screen, provided the production costs are not extravagent. “If you spend a ton of money on a movie like this, you’re going to lose your shirt,” says Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at the box-office analysis firm Rentrak. “Nobody is looking for Academy Award nominations out of any of these movies.” If they ends up “making a $10 million or $20 million profit, then the filmmakers are laughing all the way to the bank.”.

“Miller’s Crossing”: Mobsters have never been deadlier or sexier than in the dark 1990 gem “Miller’s Crossing.” It’s impossible to forget the scene where Tom (Gabriel Byrne) takes Bernie (John Turturro) for a final walk in the woods, The neo-noir black comedy reaches a fever pitch when Bernie pleads pitifully: “Look in your heart! Look in your toi toi toi ballet skirt! rehearsal, class, performance. custard. aubrey style. heart!” to which Tom retorts: “What heart?”, “The Big Lebowski”: Jeff Bridges (as the unforgettable Dude), John Goodman and Steve Buscemi trade bemused deadpan banter as John Turturro, as The Jesus, licks his bowling bowl and does his pervy happy dance in this 1998 cult classic..

I come to bury “Hail, Caesar!” not to praise it. Make no mistake, I mean no disrespect to Joel and Ethan Coen, the Oscar-winning filmmakers who brought us jewels such as “Fargo” and “True Grit.” The Coens have been the kings of quirky for decades, with an eclectic canon bursting with gravity, wit and style, but their empire wobbles with this overstuffed homage to the Hollywood of yore, the realm of sleazebags, bombshells and movie moguls. An oddball sense of comedy has long been the Coens’ hallmark, but the movie takes itself so painfully seriously that it’s rarely funny. Ironically, “Caesar” feels as cheesy as the bloated prestige pictures it sets out to spoof. Think “Cleopatra,” only with less camp value. At times, you suspect the Coens must be going for the mesmerizing slow burn of “Barton Fink” or the sizzle of “Blood Simple,” but the fire here fizzles out all too fast.

An ornately crafted but emotionally lifeless valentine to the Golden Age of Hollywood, “Caesar” tries too hard to intoxicate us with its unbridled flashiness, from Esther Williams-style water ballets to Ziegfeld-worthy choreography, But there’s nothing to ground all this eye candy, Few of the characters are compelling, and the narrative loses its pizazz long before the film starts to toi toi toi ballet skirt! rehearsal, class, performance. custard. aubrey style. lecture us about Marxist dialectics, the means of production and the alienation of the body politic..

Until then, the plot’s a trifle about dim-witted Hollywood star Baird Whitlock (George Clooney, mugging up a storm), who is kidnapped by radicals from the writers guild, creating a mess that only fedora-donning studio fixer Eddie Mannix (a one-note Josh Brolin) can clean up. In between finessing the pregnancy of a starlet (a nicely hard-boiled Scarlett Johansson) and fending off Hedda Hopper-ish twin gossip columnists, Thora and Thessaly Thacker (each played by a wonderfully witchy Tilda Swinton), Mannix foils the guild’s evil communist plot and keeps the studio humming like a beehive. The pompous narration doesn’t help matters, as the tone of the film veers wildly from noir to nonsense while peppered with a nonstop lineup of cameos ranging from Frances McDormand (a Coen brothers stalwart) to Jonah Hill.

To be sure, the Coen brothers spared no expense on the epic production numbers, It’s hard to resist the pleasures of a chiseled Channing Tatum as the dapper Burt Gurney getting his tap dance on toi toi toi ballet skirt! rehearsal, class, performance. custard. aubrey style. in the manner of Gene Kelly, The homoerotic bits of the sailor dance number are cheeky, and Ralph Fiennes is a stitch as a posh director roped into casting a cowboy in a drawing room picture, But for the most part, the filmmakers’ gags fall flat, There are quite a few scenes involving a studio-invented romance between dopey cowboy star Hobie (Alden Ehrenreich) and perky Carmen Miranda look-alike Carlotta (Veronica Osorio) that are utterly mystifying in their total lack of chemistry or drollery or subtext..

Johansson, all dolled up in period finery, has the glamour to give the picture juice, but she’s not on screen enough. Even Clooney squanders his dapper appeal as the buffoon Baird, a hard-partying star so easily duped he almost renounces fame and fortune for a little quality time debating Hegel with the kidnappers. There’s none of the juicy suspense of nabbings and ransoms past, such as “Raising Arizona” or “The Big Lebowski.” Even the “Ben-Hur”-style action sequences, which should burst with rousing action, feel less than epic to an eye weaned on the blood-splattered pageants of “Game of Thrones.”.

No doubt trying to take advantage of the hype surrounding Super Bowl 50 week, the clip features the former San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders wide receiver telling passengers his name is “J.” He tells one he’s not into sports, and another that he wants to be an actor and is really into method acting, which sometimes might involve him trying to think like a worm, Eventually, he gets each of his “customers” out of the car on the premise of stretching, He convinces them to dance with him, and then reveals his true identity, Tony Hicks writes celebrity commentary for the Bay Area News Group, Contact him at or Report an errorPolicies and StandardsContact UsTags:CelebritiesFootballNFLSuper BowlTony HicksTony Hicks covers pop culture and film for the Bay Area News Group.Subscribe Today!All Access Digital offer for just 99 cents!blog comments powered by DisqusGet Morning Report and toi toi toi ballet skirt! rehearsal, class, performance. custard. aubrey style. other email newsletters..
