4.5 The British Odd Couple stuartfear | 20/10/2011 | See all stuartfear's reviews (762) Coogan and Brydon team up on their own little tour around the great British countryside, seeing the sights and trying some delicious restaurants along the way.The story is basic, it's just two people who aren't really friends travelling around together ranting and moaning. At times its very amusing, at other times it gets a little tiring.Coogan is the middleaged man who seems in crisis, down and miserable complaining about everything. Brydon is his counterpart, a married middleaged man who just seems to want to be happy and have fun. Most scenes have the two doing impressions, Brydon's Michael Caine is amazing, sounds just like the man himself.Some of the things that are said are hilarious and others just go by without a real laugh. Some are dragged out a little bit too long and its obviously that this was made with a ver flexible script.Overall: Theres some laughs and chuckles but on the whole it's not as gut busting as you'd hope. It's an alright movie to pass the time but it's nothing compared to the two's previous TV shows.
