Coogan and Reilly are outstanding and perhaps more genial than their real-life counterparts...

Performing from under a quivering mass of makeup [is] the toughest kind of screen acting...but Reilly, whose lilting voice and gentle nature get him halfway there, succeeds handsomely.

In 1937, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy are Hollywood stars at the peak of their illustrious comedic powers. But 16 years later they're dining on humble pie.

There is plenty to admire in the sedate but moving biopic.
May 23, 2019
Coogan and Reilly's portrayals are thoroughly enjoyable and the visual gags work with a pleasant nostalgia, but for such cinematic icons, who were huge stars of their time, overall it feels a bit lightweight and reserved.

Stan & Ollie is a film about creativity and relationships, how those two are inextricably linked, sometimes to the puzzlement and surprise of creative partners.
