    • Excerpt: More very funny impersonations from Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan.
  • Daniel Carlson @ Movie Mezzanine
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: We get more Michael Caine impersonations with garbled “Dark Knight” Christian Bale and Tom Hardy takes…While this sounds like recycling, some of it is side splitting, as is quick-witted punning on such things as a woman’s gait and kumquats(!).
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: In The Trip to Italy, it feels as if they’re simply doing a routine, and it’s the same shtick we’ve already seen.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Leisurely and sublimely sybaritic, it;s filled with irrepressibly clever repartee.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: The script is witty, but it lacks confidence to add something fresh to the familiar concept. So how do you say déjà vu in Italian?
  • Blake Howard @ Graffiti With Punctuation
    • Excerpt: The Trip to Italy is just an assault of laughs, whether it’s duelling impressions, sketches or bickering. However, it’s in that vulnerable state, when your face is sore from laughter and your ears are reverberating with Michael Caine’s voice that Winterbottom torpedos you with emotional truths. The people you love should keep you grounded, tease you incessantly and dwarf your accomplishments; because they know it makes you better.
  • [New – 10/9/14] | Marty Mapes @ Movie Habit
    • Excerpt: We asked for more, and we got it. But maybe two is enough.
  • Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
    • Excerpt: The transplant to Italy has not made this Trip any less amusing, but Witerbottom takes full advantage of the country’s cinematic history. There are references to several famous films set in Italy, with an emphasis on those with bittersweet and unhappy endings.
  • Andrew Wyatt @ St. Louis Magazine
    • Excerpt: If the prospect of dueling Michael Caine imitations amid picture postcard scenery sounds charming, the film will likely prove to be an unassuming summer diversion.
