Synopsis by Mark Deming
Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy return -- well, sort of -- in this comedy for the whole family. Bronson Pinchot plays the look-alike nephew of Stan Laurel, while Gailard Sartain appears as a man who bears a striking resemblance to his uncle, Oliver Hardy. Just like their uncles, when the younger Stan and Ollie get together, comic chaos is the inevitable result, especially after the duo travel to South Africa and encounter a mummy. F. Murray Abraham also appears in this film, which is not a biography of Laurel and Hardy or a remake of one of their classic films, but a new story inspired by the characters they created.
