Eric & Ernie


In the run-up to World War Two, Ernie Wiseman, a precocious and confident child performer, is signed up by influential impresario Jack Hylton. In Morecambe, pushy stage mum Sadie Bartholomew drags her slightly reluctant son Eric, an eccentric dancer, from one audition to the next until he too becomes a client of Hylton. The boys do not get on at first but Sadie sees a way to exploit their cross-talk and they form a bantering double act as Morecambe and Wise.

After war service they become successful on stage and on radio but their attempt to crack the new medium of television is a disaster because they have been forced to accept a script which will make their Northernness acceptable to Southern viewers. They split up. However Sadie knows the formula that once worked and pushes Eric, now married to dancer Joan, into contacting Ernie. They decide to reform, on their own terms, into the act that would become one of the most successful television pairings ever.

Andrew Thomas

The music did not enhance the storytelling in a meaningful way, feeling more like background noise rather than a crucial element in conveying the mood and atmosphere of the era in which the story is set.

Elizabeth Adams

The soundtrack seemed repetitive and uninspired, with a lack of variety in musical styles and themes, making it difficult to stay engaged and fully immersed in the narrative of the film.

Karen King

I found the soundtrack of Eric & Ernie to be lacking in emotional depth and failed to capture the essence of the characters' struggles and triumphs throughout their career.

Brian Martin

Overall, the soundtrack of Eric & Ernie is a fitting accompaniment to the story of two comedic legends. The music not only sets the tone for each scene but also evokes emotions that resonate with the ups and downs of Eric and Ernie's careers.

Ashley Williams

The soundtrack of Eric & Ernie perfectly captures the nostalgia and charm of the post-war era. The music transports the audience back in time and enhances the storytelling of the duo's journey from struggling performers to television icons.

James Carter

The use of period-appropriate music in Eric & Ernie adds depth and authenticity to the portrayal of the entertainment industry during that time. The songs chosen complement the narrative and help establish the setting of the story, making it more immersive for the viewers.
