The Trip (quick movie review)
The Trip (2011)
Whenever I see a mockumentary, I have to judge it against This Is Spinal Tap, which is unfair, but that’s my standard. Of course, The Trip can’t hold it’s own against such a fierce competitor, yet it’s still a lot of fun and often hilarious. There’s nothing quite like dueling Michael Caine impressions, is there? But unlike Tap (or it’s younger brother, A Mighty Wind), the movie lacks an arc and any sense of closure – never before was ‘The End’ more needed at the end of a flick. Starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon (Brydon is my boy – Gavin and Stacey style!), The Trip is totally worth a watch, but it’s not exactly reinventing the genre – it’s just good fun.
