Editorial Reviews

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.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on October 11, 2011
Format: Amazon Video
One of the more unexpected hits this year on the art house circuit was Michael Winterbottom's "The Trip." Initially designated to a very limited release, the film received great word of mouth largely due to a scene featuring dueling Michael Caine impersonations which became an outright cultural phenomenon. With this sequence becoming a genuine YouTube sensation, the movie eventually rolled out to a much wider distribution in over 100 major markets. It's an interesting success story about this unassuming little film that redefines the road movie AND the art of conversation. Interestingly enough, the movie is simply a condensed version of a six part television series that aired in Britain in 2010 (which incidentally won Steve Coogan a BAFTA for Best Male Performance in a Comedy). If you've had the opportunity to see the original source material, you will obviously be familiar with the content of Winterbottom's film. It utilizes the exact same footage. But in "The Trip," the narrative is tightened up for an enjoyable two hour ride.

In truth, there's not a lot of plotting to "The Trip." Comedian Coogan and the fantastic Rob Brydon play fictional counterparts of their real life personas. Coogan has been contracted by a local paper to review a series of the country's finest restaurants. When his girlfriend backs out on the trip, Coogan scrambles for a replacement settling for a friendly acquaintance that he has worked with in the past (Brydon). In a largely improvisational manner, the two companions bicker and provoke one another with a playful respect. Brydon continually lapses into terrific impersonations and challenges Coogan to much verbal sparring.

We Rise at 9:30!
Funny, loopy stuff that puts me in mind of SCTV (for me, the highest praise). It might be even funnier to Americans than to folks in the UK. We (I should say, I) don't really know these two. Is Steve Coogan REALLY famous over there for some kind of cheesey comedy show and is now seeking roles for more critical acclaim, or is that all made up? And is Rob Brydon truly well-known for being able to throw his voice in a weird, muffled way? I like how they sometimes got on each other's nerves but basically liked each other; I had feared some horrible Gervais-ish snarkfest with non-stop attacks on The Dumb Guy.

The shots of the countryside were so beautiful they should have had a link to British Airways.

Be sure to check out the Food Cut in the bonus features. And let me know what dish it was that had a saucepan filled with butter, brown sugar, honey and creme anglaise--I think I passed out.

Oh, and Coogan's Michael Caine was better.

There are several reasons why a certain viewer category might enjoy this film such as:
First, the drives through the countryside of northern England.
Second, the literary and historical sites visited.
Third, the verbal exchanges in the traditional British satirical and tete-a-tete repartee manner were informative and entertaining.
Fourth, the food preparation and even eating scenes were highly engaging and beyond most American humble dining experiences.
Fifth, the impressions were fascinating especially the degree to which preciseness was sought after with great diligence.

The special features/bonus material contains some worthwhile additional takes (although a few could be skipped if time is a problem) and more film of the food prep.
