Watch: More Michael Caine Impressions In 2 Clips From 'The Trip To Italy' With Steve Coogan & Rob Brydon

The Playlist By Ben Brock | The Playlist April 15, 2014 at 3:52PM

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon's “The Trip” was a hard thing to pin down: it was a BBC TV series that was recut into a movie, and a travel documentary that didn't really document anything much, in which the two British comedians played some indeterminately exaggerated/scripted/improvised versions of themselves. But despite nobody quite knowing what it was, a lot of people liked its meandering, mild comedy style and the interactions of the two master comedians: hence the similarly imprecise sequel, “The Trip To Italy,” now playing on BBC and to be released by IFC Films (in a shorter movie format) in the U.S. sometime later in the year.

The Trip to Italy

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon's “The Trip” was a hard thing to pin down: it was a BBC TV series that was recut into a movie, and a travel documentary that didn't really document anything much, in which the two British comedians played some indeterminately exaggerated/scripted/improvised versions of themselves. But despite nobody quite knowing what it was, a lot of people liked its meandering, mild comedy style and the interactions of the two master comedians: hence the similarly imprecise sequel, “The Trip To Italy,” now playing on BBC and to be released by IFC Films (in a shorter movie format) in the U.S. sometime later in the year.

Ahead of that premiere, the BBC has released a couple more clips, and like one we saw a few weeks ago, one of the new scenes also plays on the most successful (or at least most viral) moment of the original trip—the Michael Caine impression, this time matched up with a Roger Moore one. It's a good impression and everything, but hopefully there's more to the film than that. The second clip does at least suggest as much, with a bit of musing about Byron's time in Italy. It's all very aimless, but then that's the attraction. Watch below.
