The Trip To Italy (2014)

While perhaps not quite as fresh as Coogan and Brydon's original voyage in The Trip, The Trip to Italy still proves a thoroughly agreeable sequel.

Movie Info

Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon-or semifictionalized versions thereof-on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair 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

This is a sequel that, for a change, was worth making.

"The Trip to Italy" may not quite measure up to "The Godfather, Part II," the platinum standard for movie sequels, but it's very funny, and slightly serious, all the same.

If Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon were even 7 percent less amusing, "The Trip to Italy" would have no reason to exist, even with its casually gorgeous scenery and shattering close-ups of seafood pasta fresh out of the kitchen.

I'd follow these guys "'round the horn" in a second. Maybe that's where they'll head next time.

Yes, these friends play rough and you wouldn't want to compete at their table, but through Winterbottom's funny and slyly serious film, you can experience their creativity from a seat nearby.

...a stale rehash of its demonstrably superior predecessor...

If you enjoyed the first trip, there is no reason you won't enjoy the second. It's familiar enough with its brand of improvisational humor, but just different enough (apart from the location) to stretch out the expiration date.

Another often hilarious buddy/food/road trip through some of the most picturesque vistas Italy has to offer.

If it's engaging male banter you crave, it doesn't get any better than this.

While the conceit of Michael Winterbottom's The Trip to Italy is basically a carbon copy of 2010's The Trip, this follow up is no less winning and is actually more charming than its predecessor.

In The Trip to Italy, it feels as if they're simply doing a routine, and it's the same shtick we've already seen.

While Rick Steves possesses an extensive amount of useful information, he may have some competition if Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon ever start compiling travel guides.

It is when they [Coogan and Brydon]get serious and move away from the buddy road trip that brings "The Trip to Italy" down a notch.

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are reinvesting the so-called buddy comedy with the concept that, sometimes, friendship is not enough.

August 20, 2014 Full Review Source: PopMatters

We get more Michael Caine impersonations with garbled "Dark Knight" Christian Bale and Tom Hardy takes...While this sounds like recycling, some of it is side splitting, as is quick-witted punning on such things as a woman's gait and kumquats(!).

It's a skimpy premise for a movie, but it works because the two men are just so darned funny.

Taken on its own terms, though, it's a pleasant trifle aided immeasurably by a setting that's just as sumptuous (if not more so) than any of the rustic Italian meals the stars chow down on.

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon work hard to be funny in this ultimate piece of luxuriant fluff requiring a surfeit of viewer indulgence.

The Trip to Italy ... presents less a narrative than a series of dinnertime conversations between fictionalized versions of Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.

Audience Reviews for The Trip To Italy

Steve: It just feels odd doing something for a second time.

A long time ago Bing Crosby and Bob Hope had a successful series of comedy films, such as Road to Morroco, where they would travel somewhere and basically have fun with each other in various locals. After finding a lot to enjoy in The Trip and now having seen The Trip to Italy, if Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon want to continue making films where they play exaggerated versions of themselves, while traveling to different countries to eat amazing looking dishes, humorously argue with each other, and do hilarious impressions, then I would be all for it. The Trip to Italy not only continues to give these two the opportunity to have a lot of fun together, it also plays even better than the first entry, with plenty of laughs to be had during this European vacation.
