"★★★★★ – Steve Coogan and John C Reilly are superb in this melancholy platonic love story" – Times
"★★★★ – Steve Coogan and John C Reilly excel in this bittersweet film about the twilight years of the great double act" – Guardian
The true story of Hollywood's greatest comedy double act is finally brought to the big screen.
Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly star as Laurel and Hardy, their golden-era long behind them and now embarking on a tour of small theatres in the UK. Bickering like an old married couple, Stan and Ollie try to adjust to the creaky guesthouses and miserable British weather in the hope of raising their profile and securing funds for a new film.
As a hectic schedule takes its toll on Oliver’s health, and despite the support of their wives - a formidable double act themselves - old grudges between the two men begin to rear their head.
With brilliant performances from the two leads, this is a heart-warming, sweetly melancholy look at two entertainment greats, giving their all for an audience.
Dir: John S. Baird
