Great tribute to Laurel and Hardy - just good fun!

Diehard devotees may resent a new adventure that features Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy characters, but "For Love or Mummy" is a delightful tribute to these two comedy legends, and fun for the whole family. Gailard Sartain and Bronson Pinchot play lookalike nephews to their namesake uncles Ollie and Stan, and the imitations are nearly perfect - from Oliver's patient but bumbling southern gentleman to Stanley's falsetto shrieks of distress. The action begins when the young Messrs. Laurel and Hardy are chosen by their men's club to guard an ancient mummy, but the mummy has its own agenda, one that includes kidnapping the pretty daughter of the museum curator, whom Ollie has a crush on. There's nothing scary for the kids, but lots of good old-fashioned laughter like the original Laurel & Hardy brought to yesterday's generation of comedy fans.
