Laurel and Hardy — the world’s greatest comedy team — face an uncertain future as their golden era of Hollywood films remain long behind them. Diminished by age, the duo set out to reconnect with their adoring fans by touring variety halls in Britain in 1953. The shows become an instant hit, but Stan and Ollie can’t quite shake the past as long-buried tension and Hardy’s failing health start to threaten their precious partnership.


This gentle, sweet story of two of cinema’s most legendary comics is a small delight, a warm hug of a movie with superb, spot-on performances, some big laughs, and genuinely touching moments. Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
The director Jon S. Baird’s genial portrait of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, the greatest double act in the history of movies, is a tightly focused narrative about this pair — after their prime. Jason Zinoman, The NYTimes
