This film was gone from the theaters in a flash before I had a chance to see it, so I was glad our library carries the DVD. John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan were perfect as this comedic pair who face difficulties in both their friendship and career in their later years. I've always been a Laurel and Hardy fan and this story about their private lives was both touching and funny. When Reilly and Coogan recreate the classic comedy routines I laughed out loud. After I watched it I wanted to borrow the DVD "Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy: the Essential Collection" to watch the originals once again.

The entertainers in that era "really" put their heart & soul in the routines. The current times you have caretakers make the choregraph....these were the men who choregraph the humor of the silverscreen, talkies. The routines & learning how the were so seamless in the roles especially how the checks blow & the hat moves.

5 " humph" that is Stan remark

I enjoy this movie, I thought the performance of Stan and Ollie were very well played. As a young boy in England, we had many a laugh at the Saturday morning Eight Cartoons. Brought back good memories. One of their best was playing golf, and you have to hit the ball where it lies.

Fabulous! Charming! Touchingly-made biopic of two of the greatest comic actors of the 20th Century. Fantastic character realizations, makeup, and art direction. This is a must-see film for all Laurel and Hardy fans - and highly recommended to those for whom Laurel and Hardy are not so familiar.

An endearing and charming film! I didn't know too much beforehand about this comedy duo, but I thought the movie was very entertaining and unique.

The actor who played Hardy actually did an alright job in this movie. He was perfect for the part. I usual do not care to much for his acting but I was pleasantly surprise. The movie was ok and I think it could have been done much better but the actors who portrayed Laural and Hardy was a good match.

After reading other reviews , that by ms mustard comes the closest to my feelings. The transformation of JCR into Ollie was truly remarkable, as was his acting. Coogan was excellent & must have spent hours reviewing old films to get the likeness. A duo from a very different time - their personal lives & how they were so compatible was well portrayed. .

Why replace the printed words "subtitle for the hearing impaired" with 'enhancement'? Last time I clicked on that there was a voice describing every movement, spoken over the voice of actors making it beyond annoyance. I could have used captions like nearly every other film offers. It was like watching a silent film. In the end I figured it out. Therefore I didn't find it very enjoyable.

Excellent. A great duo who came in to popularity in 1937 the year I was born.
