Trivia

Michael Winterbottom came up with the idea for the series after working with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon on Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story (2005). He was specifically inspired by the opening scene, where the two actors, playing fictionalized versions of themselves, make fun of each other in a completely ad-libbed conversation. See more »

Alternate Versions

A 90-minute feature version was shown at film festivals a few months before the screening of the TV series. See more »

Whatta ya got? I'm in the dark here!
2 January 2011 | by scott_thompson7454See all my reviews

One of the TV highlights of 2010. Coogan and Brydon are superb, the oddest of couples as they bicker about their careers and try to outdo each other with impressions ranging from Al Pacino ('whatta ya got?') to Alan Bennett ('Peter and Dudley, Dudley and Peter'). It's beautifully shot with some stunning locations and also manages the tricky feat of segueing from dark comedy to oddly touching drama and back again. It could so easily have been self-indulgent tripe, and there are admittedly times when you want to reach into the screen and punch the preening, self-obsessed Coogan, but The Trip manages to walk that finest of lines, delivering a love song to the north and a funny, thoughtful meditation on fame and the ageing process. Here's hoping for a second series.
