5.0 out of 5 stars Gently brilliant, 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Trip [DVD] (DVD)
If you enjoyed "A Cock and Bull Story" then you should definitely watch this.

Coogan and Brydon are playing basically the same characters (i.e. themselves (almost)) although there is no apparent link to their fictional personal lives from the film.

There is plenty of banter of the slagging each other off variety. Some of it is absolutely hilarious. There is however an overall sadness to the series. Coogan plays a man who despite middle age hasn't grown up, quite beautifully and the emptiness of his life when contrasted to Brydon's is very apparent. Coogan constantly sneers at Brydon at least outwardly but you get the sense that he is seeking the stability of Brydon's life but is also fighting against it and feeling that there must be something more.

Wonderful stuff.
