Steve Coogan and chum Rob Brydon, sort of playing themselves, drive around North England, sample gourmet restaurants, comically recite poetry, needle one another, and offer competing impressions (Coogan’s Michael Caine is slightly better, but Brydon is ace with Anthony Hopkins). Coogan is rather draggy, fretting about his career and serially betraying his absent American girlfriend. Michael Winterbottom directed this slimmed version of the duo’s six-part British TV show, and despite quite a few laughs it finally seems like the last, tired lark of aging cut-ups. 2011.
