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)

This was a really lovely film - full of gentle humour and nostalgia, portraying the end of a fine comedy era and relationship so well. Steve Coogan was just brilliant.

Have heard views from good to bad and everything in between! I was surprised by the film as I didn't know much about Laurel and Hardy really. I thought the ending was sad, but I enjoyed it and I would certainly watch it again.

A brilliant film well worth watching a great look at Stan and Ollie career and life.
