Stan & Ollie

Stan & Ollie

In the mid-'50s, an aging Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy tried to revive their careers with a stage tour of England. Recreated here by British funnyman Steve Coogan (Stan) and America actor John C. Reilly (Ollie), the famed duo are brought back to life with startling authenticity. Not only do Coogan and Reilly look the parts, but they've studied every mannerism and movement. As the tour wears on both health and finances, the two men come to grips with the reasons behind their long-ago breakup. It's an intimate, behind-the-scenes film, but the charisma and chemistry of the stars imparts a bittersweet sense of nostalgia. FULL REVIEW: Genial showbiz biopic examines aging comics, changing times by Devin D. O’Leary (1/24/2019). 97 minutes PG.
