The true story of Hollywood's greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the inimitable movie icons, Stan and Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair's triumphant farewell tour. With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) - a formidable double act in their own right - the pair's love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.

In the 1930s County Hospital scene, Stan brings Ollie some white hard boiled eggs. The reproduced 1953 scene on the English stage tour uses brown eggs. Brown hens eggs were rarely seen in the UK before the late 1960s. See more »
I've just had the rare pleasure of watching a film that can be classed as truly remarkable at an Unlimited Cineworld screening. This will be a future classic with The Godfather Part 2, Raging Bull, Lincoln etc.
John C Reilly IS Oliver Hardy. A possible awards contender? Most definitely.
Steve Coogan I think is Stan Laurel's Love child. Both remarkable and thoroughly believable performances.
Being a lifelong fan of Laurel & Hardy, this could quite easily be the two men themselves.
I read another review mentioning the first 4 or 5 minute shot. Beautifully woven and assembled. As good as La La Land.
If you like L&H, even if you don't, this film will surely make you smile and quite possibly cry too.
