Directed by Michael Winterbottom, Coogan and Brydon drive their way in their Mini-Cooper convertible along the Italian coast sampling persons and cuisine of the most delightful nature. Intermixes with the tour they are taking are references to the two tourists’ personal life and the not so fictional versions of them. Coogan and Brydon are wonderful as they banter, ad-lib and joke with each other about their respective traits and personalities but, through it all, a caring and bonding that is rarely found in two friends without any negative agenda. You watch the film liking its heroes and wishing you could be the third member of their group. Unorthodox and unlike most films the viewer will see, I give the movie an 8 for, above all, it is fun to watch, extremely entertaining and allows the audience to experience, not only the charm of really funny men but, in addition, the breathtaking beauty of the landscape that is Italy.

If you enjoyed The Trip, you should enjoy The Trip to Italy as well. It's in both the scenery & the interactions between Rob Brydon & Steve Coogan that the film particularly excels.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film, but the bad news is that you have to pay attention. The jokes and impersonations are hilarious, but they come thick and fast. They identify each person mimicked in passing, but you have to follow carefully. YouI thoroughly enjoyed this film, but the bad news is that you have to pay attention. The jokes and impersonations are hilarious, but they come thick and fast. They identify each person mimicked in passing, but you have to follow carefully. You also should know something about movie history and the Romantic poets (Byron and Shelley in particular), so I can understand that this movie is sadly not for everyone. The scenery is lush, and the food is voluptuous and lovingly filmed to the point where it can make you crazy, especially if you are eating stale popcorn as we were. The film is a lot of fun, but I didn’t give it the highest rating because of the maudlin last half hour where personal family issues and a real family member and a not-very-interesting agent appear in person. The movie fell flat, and since this film is the equivalent of mental calisthenics, it was just a bit too long and the change in tone didn’t really work for me. Expand
