Starring: Rob Brydon, Steve Coogan, Paul Popplewell

Director: Michael Winterbottom

Running Time: 107 mins

The Trip is a British film about two men: Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, who are sent on a trip around Britain to review ten different restaurants by The Observer.

This film features two of my favourite comedians, who do the most wonderful impressions, as shown in the movie, and I must say that the scenes with the impressions were very funny, however that was it for me.

Although obviously intended, the film had no story as such, so I found it quite boring to watch, as nothing actually happened, and the other random conversations between Rob and Steve were not as funny as intended, while the very very long and empty landscape shots were very dull, as there was absolutely no reason to watch Steve Coogan walking across some rocks in the North.

Overall, this gets a 5.2 because although some scenes were very funny, the rest of the film was very empty and dull to watch, which was not very entertaining in my opinion.
