"Eat, drink and try not to kill each other."

Directed by Michael Winterbottom, THE TRIP finds the entertaining Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon (24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE, A COCK AND BULL STORY) back together in a hilarious road comedy. The film follows the pair on a hysterical odyssey that has won over audiences at the Toronto and Tribeca Film Festivals, and has critics rolling in the aisles.

Steve Coogan is asked by The Observer to tour the country's finest restaurants, and he makes plans thinking this will be the perfect getaway for him and his beautiful girlfriend. When she backs out, Coogan extends the invitation to his best friend and constant source of aggravation, Rob Brydon.

The brilliant comic duo let their egos go wild and, freestyling with flair, they drive each other mad with constant competition and showdowns of competing impressions (including dueling Michael Caines, Sean Connerys and Al Pacinos).
