Affectionate Laurel and Hardy biopic Stan & Ollie screened in advance for Unlimited members last night. Steve Coogan is Stan Laurel and John C. Reilly is Oliver Hardy in this funny and poignant portrayal of the legendary comedy duo's twilight years.
So what did Unlimited members make of the movie? Well it went down a storm with Gilly who praises the film's warmth.
Andrew Fullick says both lead performances are on point.
Philip Ward says the movie recalls nostalgic memories of his favourite Laurel and Hardy movies.
Just been to @cineworld preview screening of @StanAndOllie and what a delightful, moving and nostalgic drama documentary from @BBCFilms. Great memories of all those black & white films that they created.— Philip Ward (@WardTV2020) December 18, 2018
Dave Billingsley says Stan and Ollie perfectly rounds off a memorable year of Unlimited screenings.
Last Unlimited screening of 2018, but right up there among the best. Great casting, well acted, and based on other accounts, reasonably accurate. Well worth another watch to start 2019.— Dave Billingsley (@dab051176) December 18, 2018
Andy Bez is another viewer who says the movie is perfect entertainment for long-time Laurel and Hardy fans.
Absolute pearl of a movie. Coogan & Reilly inhabit the roles so well you almost forget its them and not some fly on the wall documentary footage. Its jumped into my top 3 of the year, cant say better than that.— andy bez (@bigandy_bezman) December 18, 2018
Cheltenham Cinematic graces the movie with a four star review.

And Wayne Reilly is another person who praises the movie as a deeply emotional experience.
Emotionally breathtaking & fitting tribute to the greatest comedy duo.— Wayne Reilly (@RealWayneReilly) December 18, 2018
