A worthy reconstruction with its mix of humour and pathos. Most enjoyable, fine performances by Steve Coogan and Mr. Riley. A lovely film, not overdone sentiment. Enjoyed the film, especially as it was based on a true story. Superbly acted. An excellent film. Really enjoyed it. A touching blast from the past – very enjoyable.# What a lovely film to end the season. Happy Christmas! Funny – sad, poignant. Loved the rooms in the Savoy. Only weakness was the parade of English settings, but beautifully acted. Charming and poignant film with two fine performances in the lead roles. Interesting, nostalgic, depressing, sad! Couldn’t understand the wives! Touching Tender depiction of the comedy duo. A sweet farewell. A bit sad and unambitious. Just good. A little slow and plodding like the end of their great career. Didn’t see any magic between them here. Very flat. The lush soundtrack. Yuk!
