The Trip Description

THE TRIP is an improvised tour of the North of England reuniting comedy favorites Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. In the style of Curb your Enthusiasm, the story is fictional but based around their real personas. When Steve is commissioned by the food supplement of a Sunday newspaper to review half a dozen restaurants, he decides to mix work with pleasure and plans a trip around the North of England with his food loving American girlfriend. But when his girlfriend decides to leave him and return to the States, Steve is faced with a week of meals for one, not quite the trip he had in mind. Reluctantly, he calls Rob, the only person he can think of who will be available. Rob, never one to turn down a free lunch (let alone six) agrees, and together they set off for a culinary adventure.

The Trip is a 2010 British television sitcom series directed by Michael Winterbottom, starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon as fictionalised versions of themselves on a restaurant tour of northern England. A second series, The Trip to Italy, followed in 2014.

The Trip Movie Reviews

  • hilarious

    I didn't know what to expect ,but it was just superb, the impressions amazing, "the man in the box" michael caine, sean connery, hugh grant, and more importantly a look at the mechanics of acting, the use of sound , timbre, timing, a truly fantastic look into what makes truly fantastic actors work. As a professional violinist, this aspect was beyond fascinating. The Yorkshire Dales and constant scallop dishes (whats that about) it was thoroughly worth every penny ! VERY english
  • Let it soak in a bit...

    BAEE's Tunes
    A great example of dry British comedic banter. Don't go into this expecting a travelogue of northern England. It's a buddy flick, with a touch of food snobbery. The quick dialogue, gorgeous scenery and suggestive consequences of man's many choices that make it a keeper for me.

    One star given for the scenery & the chefs' creations. If you want to watch two impressionists compete...over & over & over...this is for you. Waste of time & money. BTW, my English husband says I am being kind here. I could certainly elaborate, but then I would be...boring.
  • ok. really bad.

    don’t waste your time even thinking about renting this one. After 30 minutes of mind numbing dialogue I quit watching. Not funny, not well written.
  • British Humor

    Save yourself from this one. Seriously!
  • Made an Impression...

    I loved seeing and learning about the history of Northern England through this film. I loved the character impressions. I thought the relationship that the travelers carved out was deeply human. The fancy food became an almost unimpressive aside to the delicious and witty repartee.
  • Awful

    Just awful. Being rendered numb with boredom curtsey to two deeply unfunny people in love with themselves and egos bigger than the ort cloud ..and being charged for the privilege?! If only I could take time back. Spare yourself some deep regret and give this a miss.
  • Painful

    There are better things to do with your time. Almost anything, really.
  • Many levels to this movie

    This is an subtly excellent movie about a guy doing an extended piece for a newspaper, that morphs into an inadvertent road trip piece. In the style of the road trip piece there are many moments of introspection, annoyance, absurdity, humor, reconnection with the outside world, self-questioning, passers by in the story that come and go and all leave their little mark, the deepening of a strong friendship/rivalry, the study of two distinct life paths, and a form of resolution at the end of the trip where the primary character chooses to forego a great opportunity in his career to stay close to his son. It is very understated in its messaging, which is my kind of movie. I am very excited that a second trip is in the works.
  • The Trip

    These two are hilarious. Brits are certainly different. The movie was good, dull at some points, but still enjoyable. It depicts two friends who live completely different lives, but go on a similar journey. Not sure what that means...This definitely made me want to go on a road trip with a crazy friend. People, check this out, you'll like it.
