From acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom comes the follow up to the BAFTA winning first series The Trip. Four years after they ate their way round the North of England Brydon and Coogan take their own Grand Tour around Italy, following in the footsteps of Byron and Shelley. The Trip to Italy reunites two men for more delectable food, sharp-elbowed rivalry and plenty of laughs.

I loved the full 3 hour version of THE TRIP. I was overjoyed to hear there was another. They have hit on a great presentation - fine scenery, some character studies and salient remarks about the times we live in and the media - not to mention celebrities. Then there are the impressions, not just used for effect, but also to make other comments about the characters in a Pythonesque way. This one is more bittersweet - if there are more, great. If not, this is a good way to leave it, with a balance. Those who have seen both may understand why I write that. I heartily recommend it - I feel these shows will go down as classics, perhaps a new genre has even been invented here.

I was compelled to write this review after reading the 1 star effort by the chap who didn't seem to understand that:

a) this isn't real - it's a mostly improvised melancholic comedy
b) Coogan and Brydon play caricature versions of themselves, particularly emphasising their negative personality traits.

I found this series more of an event to watch as you can't deny the beauty of their surroundings which they seem to take more for granted, further emphasising their celebrity status. Some of the improvised scenes, especially their commentary on The Dark Knight are pure genius and I also learnt plenty about Byron and Shelley too.

Where to go on the next trip? I'd like to see The Trip to Japan.

There is something wrong with me. I'm sure of it. I'm sure I used to hate these kinds of shows. Then I saw the Alan Partridge movie and suddenly I found myself racing to catch up with all things Coogan. Not of all it landed well. Some of Coogan's Run was a little off key for me, but The Trip and the movie that came before it were brilliant. I get that they're not everyone's cup of tea but there's something about the minimalistic direction and the fine line between comic and seemingly stripped down characters that I love. This is just as strong as the first series for me. If anything it is a little lighter in places but I don't think it suffers for that. This, for me, really is about two good friends showing just what they can do without restrictions of character or expectation and I think Michael Winterbottom may well be directing some of the finest looking TV comedy we have at the moment.
An accuired taste? Sure. Worth accuring? Without a doubt.

If you are a fan of impersonations, superb food, exquisite scenery and two men who are full of beans, this is the film for you. Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, are the stars,characters in this film. I had seen their previous film, 'The Trip', where they took a motor trip to the back roads of the UK, stopping at fine Inns, eating wonderful food, drinking good wine, talking about the scenery and their lives. It was a fun rollick with two funny guys. This is pretty much the same, only different.

Coogan from England, Brydon from Wales are actors/comedians, driving through Italy, from Naples to Capri with Amalfi scenery thrown in. The food looks excellent, the restaurants and the Inns are first rate. They drive a Mini Cooper convertible, which is a good thing on these small roads. The scenery is, of course, so superb, a grand taste of the sights and sounds of Italy. Their conversations amusing, often downright funny, they each have impersonations of their favorite celebrities down to a 'T'. However, I found the impersonations got old for me, difficult to understand at times and annoying at others. It was not until the end of the film that I understood this was a somewhat scripted story, not their real life adventures. Family members and some staff all actors. On the whole, however, I found the film amusing and the scenery gave me everything I had wished for. Where will they go next year, the wine country of France?

The first series of The Trip was sublime, hilarious, borderline-genius and in a part of the world I know well. Series 2 in Italy was on first-watch a bit of a disappointment especially the first episode. BUT, the more I have watched it the funnier it gets! It is not as good as series 1 but it is a very, very funny series. Would recommend

A pretty decent follow-up to the first series albeit quite a bit more sombre in tone. The visuals are splendid. My wife and I both enjoyed watching it. I think Coogan fares a bit better in the drama department here than Rob Brydon (again), who is saddled with a bit of a mid-life / career crisis. Suggestions for future locales for THE TRIP; Japan (Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka), USA (New York, Chicago, San Francisco), France (figure it yourself).

The next best thing to visiting Italy yourself. The Michael Caine impressions, banter, and wind-ups are a pleasant bonus.

An interesting gastronomic journey around some of the various regions of Italy which my late wife and I have visited over past years.It brought back some fond memories.I think however that the table banter could be varied a bit and the impressions are getting a little repetitively overdone!!
