Film Review: The Trip

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, both actors are well known in their own right, in the same film, doing impersonations of famous characters and actors, whilst touring restaurants in the North of England. Directed by Michael Winterbottom, how can you resist the combination?

Answer, you can't, and you would be very foolish to not watch this film.

Put simply, a film full of one liners and hilarious send ups, is so enjoyable to watch. The two mains, Mr Coogan and Mr Brydon, play "fictionalised versions of themselves", rather how I've heard the guest actors on Extras portray themselves.

A word of advice, this is a good movie, to watch when you've already eaten, because then you won't feel too hungry afterwards.

  1. This first quote comes from another hilarious British film:
    “The Count: Cuz if you shoot a bullet, someone dies. When you drop a bomb, many die. You hit a woman, love dies. But... if you say the f-word, nothing actually happens.”

    And the next two from another:
    “Arthur: OK. Leave this to me. I'm British. I know how to queue.”

    “Trillian: I have a plan.
    Arthur: Does it involve pushing him out there and then running the other way?”
