Steve Coogan has been asked by The Observer to tour the country's finest restaurants, but after his girlfriend backs out on him he must take his best friend and source of eternal aggravation, Rob Brydon.
Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon talk about the song "The Windmills of Your Mind" by Noel Harrison and it is played at the film's ending. A different version of this song by The King's Singers was played at the end of the final episode of I'm Alan Partridge (1997), where Alan goes to see the unsold copies of his autobiography being pulped.

Steve says while at lunch that a version of 12 Years a Slave was made by HBO "about ten years ago". No such version exists but PBS did make a version in 1984 entitled Solomon Northup's Odyssey. See more »
Incredibly boring and uneventful. The kind of movie retiree's who listen to radio all day would enjoy.
40 minutes into the movie, I was incredibly bored. Essentially this film is just two mates having improvised banter over a meal. It's more of a documentary travel/food TV show painfully stretched out to a feature film length.
It was, the best way to put it; 'lame'. It did show a bit of promise in the beginning but failed to meet any kind of standards. Sure, the banter brought some smiles, but none of it was really clever or witty. It really was just two friends talking. I feel like this movie is the kind of video you make among friends and show it to only friends, and your friends would be the only ones laughing. No one outside that circle of friends.
Wouldn't recommend this.
