Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine It's very funny and, with this as a start, we hope the two will pay their disrespects to other film classics; Laurel and Hardy as G-Men, or Laurel and Hardy calling on the House of Rothschild. Jul 23, 2019 Full Review Steve Crum Video-Reviewmaster.com Stan and Ollie way, way out east in Scotland. Very funny bits. Rated: 4/5 Apr 23, 2007 Full Review John J. Puccio Movie Metropolis The two plot threads are so disconnected that the principal and secondary players are never in the same scenes together. Rated: 5/10 Apr 13, 2006 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Filmed when Laurel and Hardy were at their peak. Rated: B Apr 10, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member One of the weaker of the Laurel & Hardy features, although at least they get more screentime than in Fra Diavolo, say. The gags are either overworked (Stan failing to march in time) or underwhelming (a choreographed litter-picking). The romantic plot is completely uninteresting, and the whole thing is deservedly forgotten now. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review ashley h Bonnie Scotland is a funny film. It is about Stan and Ollie mistakenly enlist in the Scottish army. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy give terrific performances. The screenplay is good but a little slow in places. Jame W. Horne did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed this motion picture because of the humor. Bonnie Scotland is a must see. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review simon d Strange title for a film mainly set in India and not their best. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Got to love Laurel and Hardy. There is nothing that amazing about this film but all the same their blunders and mishaps still entertain. First they are in Scotland and then trying to cope in a Scottish regiment. This plot seemed somewhat similar to Flying Deuces but I don't mind that much Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member There's lots of fun to be had here with a number of clever gags and well-written dialogue. The sub-plot is well-enough handled to not bog down Laurel and Hardy's momentum too much. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member stan n ollie bring tha funny from what i've heard this was their personal fave of their movies myself i still love the music box and those iconic stairs!
