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.
Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly also starred together in Holmes and Watson (2018). Interestingly, Stan & Ollie (2018) is John C. Reilly's highest rated film on Rotten Tomatoes and Holmes & Watson (2018) is his lowest. (As of 13th January 2019). See more »

I've been a massive Laurel and Hardy fan been since I was a kid....... and I've watched their films over and over again through the years so I am very familiar with how they talk ,move and dance... which makes Steve Coogan and John C Reillys' performance even more amazing. They 100% nail their performances....
Even if you haven't heard of Laurel and Hardy (where have you been ??)...you should still enjoy this for film as it's a great look behind the scenes of early hollywood and a really touching story.. I must stress this is a drama not a comedy film although there are some comic moments....( surprisingly a lot of the comedy comes from the boys wives who also were played to perfection )
Basically it's a Love Story between two good friends. Stan and Ollie... It's beautifully shot and hopefully it will bring L and H to a new generation of fans
