Info copied from youtube:

When Steve Coogan is asked by The Observer to tour the country's finest restaurants, he envisions it as the perfect getaway with his beautiful girlfriend. But, when she backs out on him, he has no one to accompany him but his best friend and source of eternal aggravation, Rob Brydon."

I first watched this movie during my flight to Tokyo last October.
I hardly watch movie, it's just not my hobby. I'm being picky on movie selection too.
No thriller, no lame comedy, no disaster movie.
The whole year of 2011, I only watched ONE movie in cinema.
This year? Not yet. 
Watching movies while traveling (when I'm not the driver such as on bus, and this time on plane) is already became a habit of mine. 

 When I read the synopsis, I found it quite interesting as it's about a trip to tour restaurants. It's about food and travel!
So I watched it while having my supper (late night flight) until I felt like I would fall a sleep in no time, I paused. Waking up for breakfast around 5am, I continued.
But too bad I had to miss the rest of the movie (about 20 minutes more) as we're about to land in Narita Airport already.

Upon coming back from my trip, I asked my cousin if she had the movie. I'm glad she has.
So I finished the movie, but without subtitle.
This is a movie with a lot of conversations. A LOT, I mean.
And that's the interesting and humorous part.

Because of their British accent and their speed of talking, I missed some jokes and info.
So I searched for subtitle online.
Ended up I watched the movie for 3 times. Hehe.
Subtitle does help a lot.

I give 4 stars for the movie.
One star is deducted for Steve Coogan's ego. Haha~


  1. Interesting indeed, thanks for sharing. I wonder are there movies about coffee :)?

    1. You heard of Taiwanese movie, Taipei Exchanges?
      check my post here:

  2. thanks, heard that now the cafe has turned into tourist spot.

    1. Yup, you're right. The sad part (but also no choice when there're too many of them) is customers can't take photos in the cafe.
