Trivia

Early in the film, the car stereo plays "Atmosphere" by Joy Division, which Steve Coogan explains he has chosen as the "soundtrack" for their trip, Though neither the song title nor the band are mentioned, in 24 Hour Party People (2002), Coogan played Tony Wilson, the producer who signed Joy Division to his Factory Records label.

Coogan and Brydon entertain us and themselves
23 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Trip is a delightful little road movie unlike any other film you are likely to have seen before.

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon travel the English countryside trying the best hotels and cuisine on offer and on they way they not only try to out do themselves on the impersonation stakes they also try to keep their friendship going when quite obviously they see themselves as rivals.

Most of this film is improvised and it's so much better for it although there is an underlying story in the film about Steve Coogan's relationship with his girlfriend but it's more a distraction than a help to the movie. Without doubt , the conversations the two men have ( mostly in other famous peoples voices ) are the highlights of the film.

Brydon comes out of the film as the most likable , if not a little irritating , and Coogan seems a little irritable at times . It's never clear whether they are trying to be themselves or they are meaning to come across this way.

The Trip is a very British film that i doubt would appeal to a foreign market but i liked it a lot.
