About this movie

Laurel & Hardy, one of the world’s greatest comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953. Diminished by age and with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. As the charm and beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans. Even as the tour becomes a hit, Stan & Ollie can’t quite shake the specter of Laurel & Hardy’s past; the long-buried ghosts, coupled with Oliver’s failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership. A portrait of the most tender and poignant of creative marriages, they are aware that they may be approaching their swan song, trying to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.

if you are not a Stan and Ollie fan, this movie will still move you. If you are a fan, you will be blown away. The acting and tjr way its shot is superb. i admit, as a fan I was skeptical. Previous attempts have fallen short coming off extremely one dimensional. In this film, however, the actors rather than imitating a single element of the subjects, completely become L & H, going deeper than the obvious. Highly recommended

I loved it! It has been a long time since I have said that about any movie. It has restored my faith in the film industry that someone can still make a movie that intelligent adults can appreciate and totally lose themselves in. I was hoping it would never end. My only regret is that Sony did not do a better job of promoting it. It is a shame that this piece of art in filmmaking was so hard to find in theatres. Reilly and Coogan give Oscar worthy performances in this wonderful movie. Go see it!

Best movie I've seen in a long time, and I'm usually a sci-fi, adventure guy. I only remember them from the comedy shorts on Saturday mornings, and because my Dad got a kick out them. Truly a healt-felt, engaging story about two world-famous comedians in the twlight of their careers. Coogan and Reilly go beyond merely impersonating their likenesses on film and stage, they bring them back to life again. Avengers has nothing on this. This is good work.
