Movie/TV Quote

"Would that it were so simple."


Hail, Caesar! (2016)


You truly do not have to have seen the Coen brothers' satire of Blacklist-era Hollywood to appreciate the scene in which "would that it were so simple" appears. A pompous director (Ralph Fiennes) attempts to get a cowboy actor (Alden Ehrenreich) to say an overwrought line of old-timey dialogue correctly. Their back and forth is like an amped up Marx brothers routine and the actual phrase is so surprisingly convoluted that it's all fantastic comedy.
