Just watched Stan and Ollie.

Brilliantly acted by Coogan and Reilly.

Very slow, gentle and quite emotional at the end, well worth a watch if you like Laurel & Hardy, I enjoyed it.

I watched the trailer, and didn't twig who either actor was until 10 seconds from the end.

Coogan is a great actor, on the quiet (no pun).

Agree though, Laurel & Hardy gives the basis for many genius comedic sketches since, with clever timing and choreography. Something the likes of the Two Ronnies took and expanded on greatly in a more recent era. To a certain extent, the Chuckle Brothers were good (albeit underrated) at this too, yet ironically were never taken seriously enough to be considered "funny".

People can say what they like about slapstick, and I'm not it's biggest fan but it will always be an integral building block to comedy and I'm sure you (and some others here) know that much more than I.

That is an indicator for great film. No preconceived ideas about how the film may be delivered or perceived. I understand the need in film for "advertising" their stars but I kind of wish they didn't. We may less jump on the hype of a particular film because of who it is written, directed and starring, and unearth some great performances from films considered "lesser".

The make up and voices of both are absolutely spot on.

I have never been a fan of Coogan but his performance is excellent.

I saw the Chuckle brothers 2 or 3 years back. For family entertainment they were smutty fuckers for sure. Funny though
