ABBA song in new movie, "THE TRIP".

"The Winner Takes It All". The classic ABBA post divorce ballad, is the subject of a humorous discussion and singing duet in the new movie. The song actually features in two segments.   The Trip movie stars Brits,  Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, The movie is  based on  the BBC -TV show of the same name.  Steve Coogan is notable in ABBAdom for hosting the parody  British TV and radio talk show  called Knowing Me, Knowing You, in which he  played the role on Alan Partridge. I enjoyed this movie, though I suppose it works better if your a bit of an Anglophile like I am.
