Movie Review: The Trip

Monday, November 7, 2011
Synopsis: When 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, when she backs out on him, he has no one to accompany him but his best friend and source of eternal aggravation, Rob Brydon. As the brilliant comic duo, freestyling with flair, drive each other mad with constant competition and showdowns of competing impressions (including dueling Michael Caines, Sean Connerys and Al Pacinos), 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.
Starring: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Claire Keelan, Margo Stilley, Paul Popplewell
Directed by: Michael Winterbottom
U.S. Rating: Not Rated

The Trip is one of those films that you never know what to expect from it. It was actually what happened from my personal perspective. I really enjoyed the trailer and synopsis from the very first time I watched it, but I was expecting something different, even though, the film was really entertaining.

The Trip is performed by two of the best British actors and comedians, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. It is a film with some good British humor, filmed in some really beautiful scenery based on the northern area from England. It is a fun journey enjoying the crazy conversations, impersonations and adventures of these two friends, going on a trip, visiting and eating in ten different restaurants across the country.

The film can be a bit slow and boring some times, loaded with some smart and mature humor, something that I really enjoyed. These two guys know how to play their roles like they're really living those lives and help us to enjoy more than those moments and short conversations, but get into the real trip, enjoying all the photography, the gorgeous scenery and all the places they visit.

It is actually a good and entertaining film for a lazy and quiet evening at home. A low pace British humor film that will not just entertain you, but will let you love all those "extra" things that will actually make you enjoy the film the way we did.

I would rate this movie with a 2/5
