    Coogan and Brydon make terrific companions for us partially because, at least as they appear onscreen, they’re so amusingly incompatible themselves.

    Their improvisation has been honed to the point where the jokes land solidly without losing naturalism.

    While The Trip to Italy offers all the pleasures of a posh holiday accompanied by two of the most inventive comedians today, the improvisation here lacks the total unexpectedness that the first enjoyed.

The majority of the "action"If you saw "The Trip" you know what to expect: Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite for a culinary tour of Italy. The majority of the "action" consists of the two comics bantering (in a car or a restaurant) and doing their impressions (the humorous highlights). The scenery is stunning, but the actual meals get less attention. Of course, it's really about them, so you like their style, you'll find yourself amused. Full Review »

Never have I wanted the main characters in a film to just shut up more!Run, don't walk from this movie if you have believed the reviews! Never have I wanted the main characters in a film to just shut up more! They waste beautiful scenery, beautiful food, and beautiful women with their self-absorbed and usually off-key or completely inappropriate badinage. Full Review »
