    Looks like it could be quite a decent little movie, about time one was made about this duo.

    Wow John C. Reilly has really got himself into the role. Can't believe it's him.

    Even when it said his name, I still couldn't make the connection.
    For his sake, I really hope that's all make up and not method acting!

    Film looks great and lovingly made.

    Can’t wait. Adore L&H. My earliest memories are watching their films on video with my dad, they made me laugh so much.

    Movie looks good and Reilly looks like a great Hardy. Coogan’s voice is good, but I don’t know if he suits the part of Stan Laurel. I’ll wait and see, but I feel there may have been a better choice out there somewhere. However, I’m already sniffing a possible Oscar or two here, probably for Reilly.

    It's actually reminded me that I've had this boxset sitting around for years and only watched a couple... Mind you, one of them was the brilliant one where they get sent to Oxford Uni as a reward for accidentally foiling a bank robbery.

    Time to crack on with some of these!

    This sketch was always brilliant, remember seeing it for the first time a few years back and in tears laughing at how over the top it got. :D

    Great box set. However, don't watch the colourised versions. Stick to the original black and white.

    Wonder who they have got to play James Finlayson?

    Absolutely. It just kills the charm.

    Come across this trailer today.
    Big fan of the pair, my dad had a few VHS tapes back in the day.

    Quite interested in seeing this.

    Hmm. Have a bad feeling about this one. Want it to be great..but I dont associate Steve Coogan with 'movie greatness' I'm afraid. JCR perhaps. Just has a middling kind of vibe to it. There's talk they are aiming for awards season, but can't see it myself...not from that.

    And, um, it's clearly just pretty decent prosthetics, but can't tell if posters above are being serious.

    Could be a Blu-ray extra. I’m sure they can do a good conversion after.

    Either that or just turn the saturation on your telly to 0 :p

    But the film is about there lives which, to them, would have been in colour.

    Interesting to see where the drama will be, unlike Abbott and Costello or Lewis and Martin there were no break ups or
    jealousies, Stan and Ollie were always best buds from the get go, no fall outs.

    Stan did the writing and creating, and Ollie played golf. :D

    Strangely I really want to see this. I have such find memories of watching them when I was a kid. It's a shame they aren't repeated nowadays and, because of that, I suspect the audience for the film will be limited. But I can't wait.
