If nothing else, this agreeable period piece provides a good case for many retrospectives to come.

Even if it only occasionally provokes big laughs, this sweet, small film makes you smile most of the way through, which may be a more uncommon feat.

If a couple of labored gags around hauling luggage don't fully land, that rather proves how much more art went into Laurel and Hardy's craft than they ever chose to let on.

It's a story about the serious side of comedians that never indulges in sad-clown sentimentality. And it intelligently explores the limitations of working partnerships in a way that neither canonizes nor excoriates its famous subjects.

A beautifully styled film with a treasure trove of jokes and skits. But above all a witty, moving study of a longterm relationship rising and falling on the waves of showbusiness, sometimes on the verge of splintering but always coming together again.

Stan & Ollie is a joyous ode to an iconic duo's final few years, that portrays its subjects with the love and attention its audience craves.
