The TripWhen Steve Coogan is asked by The Observer to tour the country's finest restaurants, he envisions it as the perfect getaway with his beautiful girlfriend. But his girlfriend decides not to go at the last minute. After being turned down by everyone else he knows, Steve extends an invitation to Rob, and together the pair attempt to navigate the winding back roads of rural England, impersonating popular celebrities such as Michael Caine, Woody Allen and Liam Neeson and bickering along the way.

Critic Reviews of "The Trip"Miami HeraldJuly 14, 2011
The Trip is not about food; it's about friendship, one that will give you plenty to laugh - and think - about.Detroit NewsJuly 08, 2011
The Trip is a comedy about two guys going to fancy restaurants in the English countryside. Sounds hilarious, huh? Well, it actually is.Globe and MailJuly 01, 2011
Much more than an appetizer, if not quite a main course, it definitely goes down a treat.St. Louis Post-DispatchJuly 01, 2011
The pinch of pathos in this tart comedy makes the "The Trip" a transportive experience.Toronto StarJune 30, 2011
Think The Odd Couple with sartorial style and more bickering. Add hints of truisms about middle age, sex, family, mortality and the limits of friendship and The Trip reveals itself to be more than it initially appears.New YorkerJune 27, 2011
The joy of this small, unimportant contest is weirdly addictive; you come out of the film as if from a concert, playing the music of false voices in your head.The NationJuly 18, 2016
The illusion of spontaneous interplay between Coogan and Brydon is faultless; the progression of the tour seems to happen on its own, as if Winterbottom's camera were just riding along.Critic's NotebookOctober 07, 2015
"The Trip" just seems forced without ever reaching the sort of cathartic climax it approximates.Playboy OnlineAugust 05, 2015
Line for line, insult for insult, The Trip is the year's most addictively quotable movie.The Patriot LedgerMay 26, 2013
A couple of hams served up with just the right blend of vinegar and spice to tantalize even the most discriminating palate.Concrete PlaygroundMarch 04, 2013
Part road-movie, part restaurant-review, 100% hilarious.Tribune News ServiceJanuary 04, 2013
Droll, improvising, overlong but awfully funny.
