The Trip to Italy

Rated NR 106 minutes 2014

Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, and director Michael Winterbottom reunite for this sequel to their indie favorite The Trip (2011), with the stars embarking once again on a restaurant-reviewing tour that guarantees plenty of food porn and literate table talk. The most remarked-up scene in the original was a hilarious sequence in which the two master mimics debate how best to impersonate Michael Caine; it's reprised endlessly here, with quick takes on Hugh Grant, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Marlon Brando, Humphrey Bogart, and Gore Vidal. Despite these moments, some spectacular seaside vistas, and numerous quotations from Byron, the movie soon grows tedious; Coogan's irritation with his traveling partner has diminished significantly, and the laughs along with it.
