It's clear that Reilly and Coogan love their characters and their research led to spot-on performances...This is a film where the director and editing stay out of the way of the brilliant characterizations portrayed by the actors.

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.
