When Steve Coogan is asked by The British newspaper The Observer to tour the country's finest restaurants, he envisions it as the perfect...
getaway with his beautiful girlfriend Misha (Margo Stilley). But, at the last minute, she changes her mind and Steve must
find another travel companion. He tries everyone he knows but they are all
too busy. His last hope is fellow actor and friend Rob Braydon who just happens to be not busy at all. The pair sets off for the North, trading impersonations
of famous actors and bickering all the way.
Director Michael Winterbottom (24 Hour Party People) manages to combine the best parts of My Dinner with Andre and Sideways, effortlessly juggling the essence of each of those memorable films. The
smart improvised dialog includes brilliant impersonations of such famous actors as Richard Burton, Sean Connery, Woody Allen, Michael Sheen,
Al Pacino and, especially, Michael Caine. The two comedians constantly try
to out do each other impersonating these well known voices, but Rob Braydon wins
with his spot-on mimicry of Michael Caine’s voice both as a young actor all the
way to his character in the The Dark Knight. This battle of
the voices provides and sustains out loud laughs throughout. Steve Coogan's quest to find a clear cell phone signal is also hilariously continued throughout, showing his frustration with modern technology.
As the brilliant comic pair drive each other mad with constant competition and showdowns, the ultimate odd couple realize in the end a great deal about not only good food, but the nature of fame, relationships
and their own lives.
