    ★★★★

    Wonderfully charming.
    Playing the iconic duo was a tough task to undertake but Coogan and Reilly absolutely nail it. They both play their roles to perfection and give award nomination worthy performances. But they aren't the only double act in this movie. Arianda and Henderson, who play the 2 wives also bounce off each other to great effect.
    It's a well made movie that doesn't go for the big laughs but instead charmingly tells the story of the duo's twilight years. A great feel good movie.

    Enjoyed more than I thought I would.

    Good not great.

    But when it comes to the crunch, it's nothing more than a generic super hero movie. We were promised we'd be wowed but ultimately there is nothing new here.
    Marvel is usually very clever with the comedy element in their movies…

    ★★★★

    Delightfully charming.
    British comedy at its very best. Not laugh out loud but subtle comedy with more than a few emotional twists along the way. The cast are all excellent.
    A very enjoyable movie which I would recommend.
