The Trip is a British comedy film, edited from the BAFTA award-winning television sitcom series of the same name. The film stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon as fictionalised versions of themselves undertaking a restaurant tour of northern England. It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2010. The Trip is a follow-up to the 2006 film A Cock and Bull Story, which features the same fictional versions of Coogan and Brydon and is also directed by Michael Winterbottom.


In an attempt to impress his American girlfriend, Mischa, actor Steve Coogan accepts a commission from the Sunday newspaper, The Observer, to undertake a tour of leading restaurants in the north of England for a column in their monthly food magazine. However, when Mischa, who was expected to accompany Coogan on the tour, insists that they take a break from their relationship and returns to America, Coogan is obliged to search for another companion. After finding that other friends are "busy", he decides with feelings of some ambivalence to invite his former colleague, Rob Brydon, with whom he shares an uneasily competitive relationship. In the course of the trip, they eat a series of gourmet meals and visit sites linked to the Romantic poets Coleridge and Wordsworth, Coogan has casual sex with a couple of women working at their hotels, and the two men indulge in various forms of one-upmanship, including exchanging impersonations of famous actors such as Anthony Hopkins, Sean Connery, Woody Allen and most notably Michael Caine. At the end of the trip, Brydon returns to a nondescript suburban home and his evidently loving wife and child, while Coogan comes back to a glamorous but lonely riverside apartment: the closing shots show him staring broodingly out of the window. In the end he calls back his agent to reject a deal for the lead role in a US drama to remain close with his family.

C’est 2 frères. Qui habitent Montbard, en Bourgogne. Et qui, pour les vacances d’été, ont décidé d’aller voir leur mère à Saint-Jean-de-Luz. Parce que ça fait longtemps. Parce que ça lui fera plaisir. Ce ne sont pas les parce que qui manquent. Ils ont trouvé un motor-home d’occasion, et vont faire la route au rythme du bitume, au gré des envies. C’est ça l’idée : une diagonale de France entre frères. Sauf que leur tombe dessus une fille qui n’était pas prévue. Une fille attachante. Inattendue. Et qui n’a jamais vu la mer. Ils font donc la route à trois. Et tout doucement, entre désirs diffus et envies cachées, ils réalisent que d’être un trio n’empêche pas de s’aimer. Sans jalousie. Plaisirs partagés.
