Title: The Trip
Author: Not rated
I just watched The Trip, which stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon playing Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. They go on a restaurant tour / road trip, sing ABBA to one another, discuss whether or not they’d be willing to give their children a fatal disease if it meant they’d win an Oscar, and do impressions. It’s… funnier than it sounds. Also sadder. Very British. Cannot adequately describe, but highly recommend.

When Steve Coogan (24 Hour Party People, Tropic Thunder) is asked by The Observer to tour the country s finest restaurants,he envisions it as the perfect getaway with his beautiful girlfriend. But, when she backs out on him, he has no one to accompany
him but his best friend and source of eternal aggravation, Rob Brydon (A Cock and Bull Story). As the brilliant comic duo, freestyling with flair, drive each other mad with constant
competition and showdowns of competing impressions of famous celebrities, the ultimate odd couple realize in the end a rich amount about not only good food, but the nature of fame, relationships and their own lives.
