Synopsis:
Beautiful scenery, exquisite gourmet cuisine and inspired, free-flowing, improvised comedy from two of the finest comic actors around. Steve Coogan has been commissioned by a Sunday newspaper to review half a dozen restaurants in the North of England. When his food-loving American girlfriend backs out, Steve is faced with a week of meals for one. Reluctantly, he calls Rob Brydon, the only person he can think of who will be available. Heading north in a stylish black Range Rover, the pair begin a journey of bickering, jokes and reflection.
Across the dinner tables of the North's best restaurants, the neurotic and sardonic Coogan and the genial, eager-to-entertain Brydon spar on anything from Coleridge or career insecurities to which of them does the best Michael Caine impression. Out of a relationship between two friends spending more time in one another's company than they might wish, emerges sparkling dialogue, real poignancy and great laugh-out loud comedy.

Good bits - The Trip review by JD

Spoiler Alert
06/04/2012

Some of the meal time banter is well crafted and slick. Some very poignant and platonic. I laughed out loud at some of the thrashing of ideas while they were in the car. There are moments when you wondered why on earth they were filming, for example steve coogan's conversations with his agent as to his age and what type of film he was good for. Self indulgent rubbish and not remotely relevant to the rest of the film. Maybe a n excuse to film outside as 90% of it was interior footage. It should have been edited to 3 episodes, because there was obviously good comedy chemistry and it could easily have been better.

Very funny - The Trip review by gazmb

Spoiler Alert
30/04/2016

Really enjoyed this , very funny conversations between just two men on a trip. You could tell sometimes the other was trying not to laugh, makes you wonder how much some was just made up and added in.
