The Trip to Italy

The Trip to ItalyComedy/Drama; Rated NR; 108min; 2014.

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets’ grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman’s vocal register, the artistic merits of “Jagged Little Pill,” and, of course, the virtue of sequels.

By the time the curtains draw to a bittersweet close, you’ll walk out feeling rejuvenated, satisfied, well replenished in humor and culture, and already planning your own trip to Italy.” – Nikola Grozdanovic, THE PLAYLIST

As funny as the first go-round, more beautiful to look at, and better conceived.” – John DeFore, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Brydon and Coogan’s discourse over breakfast, lunch and dinner is captured with a casualness that makes the eavesdropping delicious.” – Betsy Sharkey, LOS ANGELES TIMES
