Stan And Ollie (12a)

Director Jon S Baird. Biography/Comedy/Drama


Steve Coogan and John C Reilly, two brilliant physical comedians, give delightful performances nailing the duo’s body language, mannerisms and routines. 1953 with their immense fame on the wane, Stan ‘Laurel’ and Ollie ‘Hardy’ embark on a gruelling farewell tour of British seaside towns. The tour starts badly; modest music halls, cramped little guesthouses, they struggle for audiences. But a series of TV guest spots rekindle the country’s interest and the buzz grows as they head towards a big London finale. But old resentments surface, particularly once ‘the wives’, Lucille and Ida, (a hilarious double act in their own right) join them. A charming, poignant, insightful study of lifelong male friendship this is a fitting tribute to the greatest pair of comedians of all time.

Starring Steve Coogan, John C Reilly, Shirley Henderson


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Our audience really enjoyed this film and showed their appreciation with a round of applause at the end!

Marmite film. Some enjoyed the history of their relationship, which ended quite poignantly that they did value their friendship. But very slow and certainly no laughs from the audience.

Wonderful film; not a single negative voiced. Poignant, beautifully portrayed story of their relationship? Unanimous approval of Steve Coogan's outstanding performance. Will not be able to see him as Alan Partridge ever again!
