But arrange them in a show as among the most iconic comedy double acts in recent history, and you have gold.
In?Stan?& Ollie, Coogan and Reilly play comedy stars Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, respectively. The duo made over 100 films together, even so the new film from director Jon S. Baird (Filth) follows the bride and groom for their final years as soon as they started the last tour across Europe. Here’s the complete synopsis:
