Coogan and Brydon give their impressions on the meals laid out before them.
12 August 2011 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

A TV comedy drama from director Michael Winterbottom, The Trip is superficially about Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon visiting various restaurants around the country to enjoy a meal and review the food. But, of course, it's not really about that at all.

Food IS consumed and discussed but The Trip is more about the two men, bravely playing interpretations of themselves (Coogan is arrogant, insecure and womanising while Brydon is always happy and always ready with an impression to relieve any tense moments), and their relationship as both friends and colleagues in that old business called show.

At times it's a little lightweight and meandering but, sometimes from out of nowhere, there's always some barb that hurts all the more or some joke made that reveals a bitter truth.

Coogan and Brydon, whether comparing Michael Caine impressions or trying to outdo one another while singing in the car, are both excellent and no episode actually has the air of something improvised and quickly made up. Paradoxically, nothing ever feels false or overly affected either. The performances from the two leads are pretty flawless.

A few other people do appear on screen but only for a very limited time. Coogan's current partner is played by Margo Stilley while the more important and dependable woman in his life, his assistant, is played by Claire Keelan.

Winterbottom has constructed a little gem here, with each episode containing a good mix of drama and humour and the overall story arc moving forward nicely to the final scenes, despite the lack of any real surprises. The food is given it's due, and looks pretty damn good, but the focus is always quickly moved back to the two men. Two friends who know each other so well, though neither would probably admit to it.
