The Trip To Italy
In 2010, there was THE TRIP with Steve Coogan. It was basically two guys (Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon) traveling through the English countryside, eating at fabulous restaurants and writing reviews.
As the trip continues backstories develop as Brydon has a fling with attractive tour guide(Rosie Fellner) while his wife back at home seems disillusioned by his jokes and their life; Coogan attempts to reconnect with his teenaged son.
Overall “A Trip To Italy’ is witty, talky, even if you might be worn down with the dialogue, you won’t be bored by these two very creative actors.
