Starring: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon & Rosie Fellner
Last seen together touring the finest restaurants of Northern England’s Lake District in Film Circuit favourite, The Trip, the dynamic duo of Steve Coogan (Philomena, Alan Partridge), and Rob Brydon (Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story) returns for a seconds in this much-anticipated sequel, trading drab-grey British skies for the glorious Italian coastline.
When London’s Observer once again commissions Coogan to write a series of restaurant reviews, the egotistical would-be superstar rounds up his cheerful friend/nemesis Brydon and sets out for la bella Italia. Partly retracing the steps of the great Romantic poets Percy Shelley and Lord Byron, the pals pile in to a quintessentially Italian Mini and take off from norther Piemonte, making a stop in Liguria and then heading south to Capri and the sun-dappled Amalfi Coast.
Along the way, between bites of succulent seafood and mounts of pasta, they riff on everything from Alanis Morissette and Batman to family and the realities of middle age. And as they did on the first Trip, these gifted mimics offer a repertoire of wickedly, hilariously accurate celebrity impressions.
A savoury mixture of character comedy, spectacular landscapes and unabashed food porn, The Trip to Italy is marvellous, witty fun with something for everyone.
Much of the pleasure of this latest Trip comes from the way Coogan and Brydon interact with their surroundings, using ancient history as rich comic fodder. – Scott Foundas, Variety
