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 »
Absolutely brilliant! Coogan, Brydon, Keelan, & Barrio are so natural together it's like they aren't even acting, absolutely brilliant! It will never catch on in the United States as the average Joe likes stuff like Star Wars, Guardian of the Galaxy and that sort of fare. But I'm not an adolescent and I prefer headier fare, I simply can't stomach the action genre (except perhaps Daniel Craig playing Bond, now that's a bulldog). The cinematography in the trip movies is always first rate and this trip installment is no exception! Hats off to Michael Winterbottom, first rate job Michael, absolutely first rate! I must mention the piano accompaniment as it is always welcome, so wistful and, highlighting melancholia filled moments. This Trip movie ended with an interesting twist with Steve about to be taken captive by the mujahideen. My bet is Steve talks his way out of it perhaps by doing "no one expects the Spanish Inquisition" impression! In addition to the pure viewing pleasure one always learns a bit, these trip movies edify as well as entertain. I simply look forward to the next installment!
