The Trip to Italy
First screened in August 2014
Director: Michael Winterbottom. Cast: Rob Brydon, Steve Coogan, Ronni Ancona, Rosie Fellner, Timothy Leach, Claire Keelan, Marta Barrio, voice of Rebecca Johnson. Screenplay: Michael Winterbottom.

Twitter Capsule: Nearly as funny as the first, daring to undermine Brydon's affability and underscoring what men avoid by joking.

VOR:   Slightly less funny than the first, and with a somewhat blatant attempt to differentiate itself by turning tables a bit on Brydon. Otherwise, mostly back to the same well.
