A Trip To Italy

Steve Coogan and Rob Dryson take another culinary trip, this time in Italy. Featuring gorgeous cinematography of a cliff top castle overlooking a bay filled with yachts, the poignant lava-encased corpses of Vesuvius, and the lush, green cemetery where Percy Bysshe Shelley is buried, The Trip To Italy also features the music of Alanis Morrisette and impersonations. Lots and lots of impersonations. Honestly, the film is filled with too many impersonations and too much Morrisette, which is any. While the one-upmanship of the pair riffing on Batman and Michael Caine over pasta was briefly humorous, the incessant impersonations ground on my nerves after a while. Still, The Trip To Italy was witty, droll, and a touch too long.
