Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon go back on the road with The Trip To Italy

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are back for a second helping of The Trip, the 2011 BBC miniseries-turned-film in which the two comedians play themselves, traveling across England together. The characters are ostensibly on the road to review restaurants, but that flimsy setup is merely an excuse for the actors to bicker, one-up each other, and trade impressions (most notably their dueling Michael Caines).

Now Coogan and Brydon are back, along with director Michael Winterbottom, for The Trip To Italy. As the trailer makes clear, it’s simply more of the same—more food, more bickering, and more impressions—only this time against the backdrop of Italy. Whether that seems like a pointless retread or a delightful second helping is up to you.
