What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Stan & Ollie is a biopic about iconic comedy duo Laurel and Hardy and their farewell tour of England and Ireland in the 1950s. Long removed from their wildly successful career during Hollywood's golden age, Stan Laurel (Steve Coogan) and Oliver Hardy (John C. Reilly) decide to do one last tour of Europe. With the support of their wives, Lucille Hardy (Shirley Henderson) and Ida Kitaeva Laurel (Nina Arianda), the pair faces a grueling schedule and their own personal ups and downs to remind the world why they're such an iconic duo. While this movie will likely be age-appropriate for tweens, there may not much to interest kids here, unless they're fans of old Hollywood. Expect a bit of language, drinking, and smoking.
