Director: Michael Winterbottom
Stars: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon
The Trip is literally about two guys traversing the English countryside, sampling the food in various upscale restaurants, and gabbing on and on about random, seemingly inconsequential topics. You're probably thinking, “I'd rather watch paint dry,” yet director Michael Winterbottom's happily simplistic comedy is anything but mundane. On the contrary, it's an absolute blast, thanks to the consistently witty and amusing banter between the perfectly matched Steve Coogan (Tropic Thunder, The Other Guys) and Rob Brydon.
