THE HUNGRY-FOR-ADVENTURE STEVE COOGAN AND ROB BRYDON ARE BACK FOR SECONDS IN THE HILARIOUS SEQUEL TO 'THE TRIP'
The Trip to Italy
The Funnymen Display More Brilliant Improvisation When Director Michael Winterbottom Sends Them on a Culinary Tour Through Italy. The Theatrical Hit Arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on December 23, 2014
"Brilliant. The 'Godfather 2' of road movies" - The Hollywood Reporter
Take beautiful scenery, add exquisite meals and the company of brilliant, witty friends and you have the recipe for delight in the The Trip to Italy, the highly anticipated followup to 2010's The Trip. The new film, again starring the riotously funny Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon and directed by award winner Michael Winterbottom, is booked for release December 23, 2014, by IFC Films via MPI Media Group. The Blu-ray will have an SRP of $29.98 and the DVD, $24.98.
Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film The Trip took actor-comedians Steve Coogan (Alan Patridge, The Look of Love) and Rob Brydon (Tristram Shandy, Little Britain) - or semifictionalized versions thereof - on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive followup, Winterbottom (The Killer Inside Me, 9 Songs) reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, where they retrace the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy. During their drives and between bites of fine cuisine, the pals indulge in some sparkling banter and face off against each other with celebrity impersonations. Re-whetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman's vocal register, the artistic merits of Alanis Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill" and, of course, the virtue of sequels.
Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centered on the crackling chemistry between the two leads. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship, the juggling of family and career, and the inevitability of growing old. The result is a biting and moving portrait of modern-day masculinity.
The film, an official selection at the Sundance Film Festival and the Seattle International Film Festival, received high praise upon its national theatrical release.
Chris Nashawaty of Entertainment Weekly said, "At its heart, The Trip to Italy is more than just a travelogue about food. It's about friendship and the appetite for experience we all share." "The pair bicker cheekily and needle each other in clever, amusing ways," said Claudia Puig of USA Today. Variety's Scott Foundas wrote, "Coogan, Brydon and Winterbottom journey to the Mediterranean in this warmly enjoyable continuation of their improvised cultural and culinary adventures." "If it's your cup of tea, you're likely to spill it from laughing so hard. Somebody send these two on another holiday," said Tom Long of The Detroit News. Said Rick Kisonak of Film Threat, "Here's hoping Winterbottom doesn't wait another four years before cooking up a third course."
