Gentle, sweet and endearing as they were themselves...
Fabulous performances and a wonderful homage to the pair, this gentle tale tells the story of their later years touring the theatres and doing the same old routines that made them famous. Ultimately it's a love story of two pals. It demands a little bit of patience from young kids as sometimes there are quite a few issues to be dealt with, notably around Ollie's health, and naturally the comedy element of the film stops.
Those set pieces that are in there are perfect recreations of their greatest hits, so expect the odd bit of eye-poking, hammer clonking on head etc.
I found it a wonderful film and it can get a bit emotional towards the end there.
There are drinking and smoking scenes, although they are clearly in keeping with the time period of the film and largely un-sensationalised.
