Goofs

Toward the end of the movie (33 minute to the end), they are showing and commenting about a fruit they call "kumquat" which is in fact a "Physalis" also called "Cape Gooseberry", a fruit originally from Chile and Peru. A Kumquat is like a miniature orange with leathery leaves, and is rarely eaten raw because of its citrus like flavor. A physalis has a paper-like husk like a tomatillo and is very sweet when ripe.

Annoyingly irritating but ultimately boring film
7 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

I started to watch The Trip to Italy hoping to be entertained in a light entertainment sort of way.

As the action progressed I became more and more irritated with the script, the performances, the settings, even the cinematography.

Never before have I had to contain the urge to throw things at a screen. I felt great sorrow for the poor Italian extras and actors having to put up with this "story" of a pair of British luvvies act-or-ing their way around the Italian scenery at the expense of the BBC licence payer.

I was infuriated at the driving slowly and wobbling about in the outside lane of the autostrada without indicating in the proper Italian manner. If I had been a passing motorist I would have given the whole crew il mano cornuto or worse.

As for the "funny" schtick in the restaurants - if I was a waiter I would have spat in their soup or "tripped" and sent their pasta into their laps or even thrown them over the edge of the terrace to their severe injury on the rocks below.

By the end of the movie I felt strangely satisfied with my bilious reaction and went to bed thanking my lucky stars I have never met such unpleasant arrogant people because I would probably get myself into trouble.
