Movie Review – Stan & Ollie – Surprisingly Genuine

Movie Review - Stan & OllieStan & Ollie is so much more than a biography; it’s a love story between two men who had great respect for each other.

John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan were perfect for their roles. Not only did they look the part, but the chemistry between the two actors was beautiful.

It takes a couple of really great actors and a great director to pull that kind of emotions out of their performance. The gentle assurance they gave each other with just a gaze was, for me, the high point of the movie.

Shirley Henderson as Mrs. Laurel, and Nina Arinda as Mrs. Hardy, deserve high praise. Watching the two women together was like watching a sitcom. They were either resentful and condescending to each other, or loving and supportive.

Stan & Ollie stole my heart. I grew up watching this duo on the old black & white, along with Abbot and Costello, The Three Stooges and The Little Rascals. Good grief — how old am I anyway???
