The Trip




Saw "The Trip" last night, a different sort of buddy movie.

Scenery of The Lakes district in UK breathtaking.  Also of the food these guys eat at upscale places on their driving tour. 

Funny stuff, but not in the usual slick American buddies with perfect teeth getting drunk and acting outrageous way. They're non-royal British so the teeth, well you know.  But they know how to entertain themselves in a civilized manner where the testosterone fueled competitiveness is roiling beneath the surface.

The other thing I liked about the movie is that seeing it was an unplanned event. Spontaneity rules.
