Another fine mess for 'Stan & Ollie'

Original post made on Feb 4, 2019

"Stan & Ollie" focuses on the classic comedy duo's tour of the United Kingdom and Ireland in the early 1950s during a time when their fame is in decline. Jeff Pope's script wisely begins by introducing beanpole Laurel (Coogan) and portly Hardy (Reilly) in their prime, on the set of 1937's "Way Out West."

Thoroughly enjoyed "Stan & Ollie." Steve Coogan and John Reilly did an excellent job. The make-up and the story line were superb. While I realize that one must be old enough to have experienced the "magic" of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in order to fully appreciate this film, it is worth the short time it takes to view this movie for anyone, regardless of age. It is an unusual story of a true friendship.
