This movie has something endearing from another era. It is very funny to see the reconstruction of sequences that were invented Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. [Full Review in Spanish]

Stan & Ollie works, but it does so as a sad drama about decadence, old age and the imminence of death. [Full Review in Spanish]

This is sweet and affectionate biopic. If you appreciate the comedy of a gentler time, its nostalgic re-creation of the final performances of two beloved comedy icons will definitely make you smile.

Perfectly cast, sharply written, beautifully shot and full of some of the best slapstick and comedic timing since Laurel and Hardy themselves graced the silver screen.

Stan & Ollie does a nice job keeping alive the memory of two gifted comedians whose work should never be forgotten.

February 23, 2019
Both a celebration and lamentation about one of the great comedy duos of the 20th Century...one of the best films we've had so far about the dizzying highs and sobering lows of show business.

February 22, 2019
Baird's vaguely iffy comedic drama is unusual as it dwells upon the beloved comedy duo when they were older, bitterer and poorer.

February 22, 2019
It's a film made with an enormous amount of care and affection. And Coogan and O'Reilly don't just perform. They resurrect.

February 22, 2019
Poignant, funny and deceptively eloquent.
February 22, 2019
In lieu of some emotional extremities, Stan & Ollie suffices as an okay-enough look into the later lives of two legends.

Nina Arianda, as Russian-born Ida Laurel, a former showgirl who still brags about working with Preston Sturgess, and Shirley Henderson, as the no-nonsense, devoted Lucille Hardy, make the most of their scenes and are a joy to watch.

Stan & Ollie might not capture the comedic energy of its subjects, but as a testament to a lifelong friendship, it's hard not to be moved just a little.
February 20, 2019
Coogan as Laurel, Reilly as Hardy, and Henderson and Arianda as their wives ... [are] all splendid ... Shame about the musical score, which is overbearing and makes the otherwise tastefully wrought and lovingly crafted Stan and Ollie seem schmaltzy.

The film's most enjoyable facet is the comic timing provided by the lead actors. John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan have excellent comedic and dramatic chemistry.

February 20, 2019
At its best, Stan and Ollie locates a lovely seam of pathos, dignity, wit and human decency that never quite slips into syrup and sentiment.

Perfectly cast and surprisingly touching.

February 15, 2019
This is just about as perfect a tribute to two great screen stars of the past as anyone could wish. I laughed and I cried and I had a thoroughly good time.
