Simply the Best!
6 March 2019 | by girvsjointSee all my reviews

If you've had a hard day at work, come home stressed, feel at you wits end, this show is the perfect cure! Chock full of some of the funniest moments ever put on film, by the number one comedy team of all time, various famous people chatting about them, most of the classic clips have been colorized, some will love that, some won't, but Stan & Ollie are as fresh and funny as they ever were, nothing seems to date. If your not laughing out loud during this film, I'd check in with your Doctor, there's something seriously wrong! Only reason I took a point off, is that some of the clips could have been a little sharper!
