Reilly and Coogan portrayed the two wonderfully and I couldn't hope to find better fits for those roles. A darling picture of two old friends. Life always has a way of mucking a good thing up eventually. So the story goes. Loved the movie. Sad to see how their lives played out. Go see this! So many laughs to be shared. I wish more of this generation knew who these two were.

So glad i finally got to see this film. Steve Coogan and John c Reilly did masterful job in their roles. if you're a fan of their work watch it, it's a must see! if not the performances alone should stifle a ticket purchase. After everything that's that's bound to come out in the cinemas to which i am a fan, it was refreshing to see a picture like this and about two actors and comedic legends whom I am grateful I was introduced to as a young boy.

One of the best movies I've ever seen. Funny and heartbreaking. I laughed but also was "choked up" by the end of the story. Wonderful!!! This movie deserves several oscars.

The acting was superb and the story was emotionally compelling, but I would have appreciated a bit more background/context. Worth seeing.

Reminded me of “Topsy Turvy” with Jim Broadbent — you got a sense of what was behind the Duo

The real head-scratcher is how such an endearingly modest, gentle film can say so much with such eloquence about a professional partnership that amounts to a love affair; about the mysterious business of being funny; and about the toll taken by the passage of time. (Messrs. Reilly and Coogan are both wonderful; so are Shirley Henderson and Nina Arianda as, respectively, Ollie’s wife, Lucille, and Stan’s wife, Ida.)

Featuring uncanny and hugely personable performances by Steve Coogan as Stan Laurel, and John C. Reilly as Oliver Hardy, and a smart script by Jeff Pope (Coogan’s co-writer on Philomena) that delivers laughs from both familiar and unexpected quarters, this is a fond, frequently very funny homage to an act that has lost none of its genius.

Everything the film has to offer is obvious and on the surface, its pleasures simple and sincere under the attentive guidance of director Jon S. Baird.
