002 – Stan & Ollie (2019) 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Laurel and Hardy, the comic duo who started their career back way back on the black and white screen and are still well known today.
Not quite the biography I expected, as I had assumed the movie would focus on how their career began and then, touch upon various intervals of their career. Instead the movie focus on 15 years after the duo had split and their struggle to rise up again. I was slightly disappointed to not see more about their earlier days but, the movie is still great to watch 😀.
What stands out in this movie is how well both Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly present the comic duo on the big screen. The focus on the mannerisms, to their appearance is brilliant 👌🏻. Equally brilliant are their on screen wives played by Shirley Henderson and Nina Arianda, who probably outshines Shirley 😊.
The chemistry between Laurel and Hardy was just infectious and you will definitely find yourself googling 🔍them after the movie finishes, to learn more about them. Finally, the movie ends tastefully on their famous dance 🕺🕺. Go and check it out!
4 out of 5 stars. Remember, it’s my opinion!
