The Trip is a British comedy film, edited from the BAFTA award-winning television sitcom series of the same name. The film stars Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon as fictionalised versions of themselves undertaking a restaurant tour of northern England. It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2010.

The Trip is a follow-up to the 2006 film A Cock and Bull Story, which features the same fictional versions of Coogan and Brydon and is also directed by Michael Winterbottom. In an attempt to impress his American girlfriend, Mischa, Steve Coogan accepts a commission from Sunday newspaper, The Observer to go on a restaurant tour of the north of England for a column in their monthly food magazine. However, when Mischa (who was supposed to accompany Steve on the tour) insists that they take a break from their relationship and returns to America, Steve is forced to search for another accomplice. When he discovers all his other friends are "busy", he reluctantly invites his former colleague, Rob Brydon.
