Following the famous Hollywood double act, Laurel and Hardy, now late in their careers & on tour in Britain in 1953. As they travel from Newcastle to Glasgow, they play half-empty halls and stay in seedy hotels while their slick, double-dealing promoter Bernie Delfont is far more interested in boosting new client Norman Wisdom than in helping old-timers. With beautiful performances by Steve Coogan and John C Reilly, this is a film about friendship and loyalty as much as a comedy.
