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.

If only the inflatable boat in the early scene had sunk.
26 November 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Could only be called two idiots abroad. Calculated 'rambles' and cringe-inducing dialogue of nothingness.

Full screen filled with their fairly boring faces while frustratingly, Italy, in all its green and aromatic glory is reduced to playing a background fleeting extra. Beautiful food is given a brisk token summary of a Benidorm-type review, while unbearable fractured Italian and pompous guide-book knowledge makes one wish their inflated boat would sink immediately with their over-inflated egos.

An arrogant treatment of Italy, combined with the most pathetic belief that these two have anything interesting to say, will leave you searching for Italian for 'where is a Borgia when you need one?"
