Terry Hunter reviews STAN & OLLIE

The new comedy-drama called STAN & OLLIE focuses on the troubled relationship between comedians Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy who made over 100 shorts and feature films together in the 1930’s and 40’s. British actor Steve Coogan and American actor John C. Riley do a great job of transforming themselves into the once wildly popular Laurel and Hardy comedy team in a story that’s based mostly on what happened to the pair at the end of their careers in 1953 when, desperate for money, they went on a stage tour in the British Isles. The film is a moving depiction of two men who really care about each other in spite of long buried resentments that finally come to the surface.
