What the Critics say
Tomatometer Stan & Ollie pays tribute to a pair of beloved entertainers with an affectionate look behind the scenes -- and a moving look at the burdens and blessings of a creative bond.
|Movie Review Query Engine|
Jeffrey M. Anderson Gentle, affectionate portrait of aging legendary comics.
Jim Judy They’re certainly fun to watch, but this is Coogan and Reilly’s show and the two make for believable flesh, blood, and soul representations of the real-life men both on stage (from what I recall) and off that (which I’m guessing is accurate in full or at least to some degree). While the scale of the story is small, that’s appropriate for this all-too-familiar tale of once mega-famous performers still out there, grinding away, even if their audiences and resultant fame are mere shadows of themselves.
