After Steve (Steve Coogan - 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE, TRISTRAM SHANDY) is commissioned by The Observer to review half a dozen restaurants, he decides to plan a trip around the North of England with his food-loving American girlfriend. But when she decides to leave him and return to the US, Steve is faced with a week of meals for one. Reluctantly, he calls Rob (Rob Brydon - GAVIN & STACEY, TRISTRAM SHANDY), the only person left he can think of who will be available on short notice. Over the course of six meals at six different restaurants in and around the Lake District, Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales, the brilliant comic duo freestyle with flair, driving each other mad with constant competition, all the while riffing hilarious impressions of iconic actors including Michael Caine, Sean Connery and Al Pacino. Directed by the award-winning Michael Winterbottom (24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE, TRISTRAM SHANDY), THE TRIP stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon in a laugh-out-loud British comedy about the importance of friendship, fame and great food.
Two friends, one week, six restaurants and the journey of a lifetime
