The Trip to Italy — Film Clip ("Godfather" Impressions)


added: Sun, May 4th '14

When it comes to the source of their celebrity impressions, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon aren't just limited to Michael Caine. It appears the two British comic actors have a strong affection for "The Godfather." So, when dining at a restaurant in Italy, it only seems right that they get to show off their Al Pacino -- and for some strange-yet-glorious reason, Coogan impersonates Woody Allen, while Brydon demonstrates his Diane Keaton.

Check out this new "la-dee-dah" clip from Coogan and Brydon's improvisational comedy "The Trip to Italy." It's the sequel to their 2010 cult hit from prolific English director Michael Winterbottom. "Italy" is currently airing in the UK as a six-part mini-series, but will be available later in the year in the US as a full-length feature.

Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon -- or semifictionalized versions thereof -- on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting 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 "Jagged Little Pill," and, of course, the virtue of sequels.
