This review is from: The Trip [DVD] (DVD)
The Trip is a wonderful, one off series where 2 great comedians show off their array of acting and comedy skills. Coogan plays the brash, domineering, successful guy who is so jealous of Brydon's happy and content lifestyle. Coogan, on a tour of restraunts which he is reviewing, has been dumped by his american girlfriend. In steps best friend Brydon to accompany him on the journey...
Each episode has the two bickering or out-doing the other with impressions, re-citals or manly tales! Coogan's ego needing massaging, Brydon just wanting to please. My favourite scene is where Brydon is telling his mate what eulogy he would give him at his funeral as they walk through a grave yard. Meeting Steve's parents too is brilliant.
The series ends with Brydon being dropped off, returning to his wife and child, whist Coogan is left in his plush apartment, alone. Very poignant, well crafted series, which will be a classic in years to come.
