The story of Dick Cheney, an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
The true story of Hollywood's greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the inimitable movie icons, Stan and Ollie is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair's triumphant farewell tour. With their golden era long behind them, the pair embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) - a formidable double act in their own right - the pair's love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.
The "Elephant movie" that caused so much tension between Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy was officially titled Zenobia (1939). Hardy co-starred with Harry Langdon, who was briefly a major silent comedy film star. The press considered it the break up of Laurel & Hardy. Langdon & Hardy received much press, but Roach never intended for them to be a permanent team. See more »

This film had its world premiere in London tonight. First impressions. It's a warm tribute that is easy on the eye yet never tries to become anything more than an enjoyable reminder of a partnership that was much loved around the globe. Don't expect much drama yet be staggered by Coogan and Reilly who are magnificent. I loved the interplay of their wives, perhaps a surprising element. A tale of love and friendship. Not ground breaking but a sweet tale.
