Film Summary: Laurel and Hardy — the world’s greatest comedy team — face an uncertain future as their golden era of Hollywood films remain long behind them. Diminished by age, the duo set out to reconnect with their adoring fans by touring variety halls in Britain in 1953. The shows become an instant hit, but Stan and Ollie can’t quite shake the past as long-buried tension and Hardy’s failing health start to threaten their precious partnership.
Bonus Material: We’re also sharing the new 4K restoration of Laurel & Hardy’s “Battle of the Century,” the most epic, hilarious pie fight on film that demanded between 3000 and 10,000 pies to shoot! A wonderful tribute to our comedy duo.
What the critics are saying:
It is simply terrific – an understated but smartly told crowd-pleaser about the legendary comedy duo in their last act, with wonderful production value, a sharp and surprisingly poignant script and brilliant performances.

You might think I’m an easy mark as a lifelong fan of Laurel Hardy, but in fact that makes me more demanding. I rarely find Hollywood biopics satisfying. But I love this movie, and still can’t get over what an incredible job the lead actors did.

“Stan & Ollie,” the story of the bittersweet final bow of legendary duo Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, should move and delight fans of the beloved performers while enjoyably exposing the less initiated to these comedy giants.
