Laurel & Hardy, one of the world's great comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953. Diminished by age and with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. As the charm and beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans. The tour becomes a hit, but Stan & Ollie can't quite shake the specter of Laurel and Hardy's past; the long-buried ghosts, coupled with Oliver's failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership. A portrait of the most tender and poignant of creative marriages, they are aware that they may be approaching their swan song, trying to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.

"It is aided immeasurably by the triumphant performances of the two stars, Steve Coogan as Stan and John C. Reilly as Ollie, who manage to avoid caricature while giving 150 percent of themselves from first to final reel."
Rex Reed - OBSERVER

"It's valedictory, with a sense of the ephemeral nature of life, the inevitability of regret, and the bittersweetness of looking back on past happiness."
Mick LaSalle - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

"The real head-scratcher is how such an endearingly modest, gentle film can say so much with such eloquence about a professional partnership... about the mysterious business of being funny; and about the toll taken by the passage of time."
Joe Morgenstern - WALL STREET JOURNAL

"The film depends... on its stars. Both, you can tell, have studied their respective masters with scrupulous care, and the results of their pupillage are plain to see."
Anthony Lane - NEW YORKER
