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, which can be eaten whole, or used in making marmalade. It has a very sharp flavour. A physalis has a paper-like husk like a tomatillo and is very sweet when ripe. See more »

Another good holiday with the two oddballs
2 January 2018 | by gavinp9See all my reviews

It's now four years later and Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are offered another restaurant reviewing gig - this time in Italy, rather than England's Lake District. What qualifies them exactly, who knows, but the actors - and the semi-fictionalised characters they play - are pretty lucky. They get to stay in amazing hotels with fantastic views, drive around the beautiful Italian coast, drink quality local wine and try great-looking Italian cuisine. One thing's for sure - this film acts as much as an Italian tourism promotion as it does anything else! I certainly wouldn't mind visiting Naples now I've seen it...

Now much closer to 50 than 40, there's plenty of digs at each other, as this is basically a 'man-cation' where they try to see who's more famous/who has the bigger ego, as well as lots of postulating as to how (or if) they'll be remembered when they're gone. There's a tangent of following Lord Byron and Mary Shelley's personal history, that doesn't really go anywhere. If this and the Rob having a bit of a mid-life crisis/affair bits were left out, it would have been a much more streamlined and succinct film.

The whole point though is to watch these two interact and do their impressions, constantly trying to outdo each other. There's some truly great impressions, from Michael Caine (again), Tom Hardy, Christian Bale, Hugh Grant, Woody Allen, Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Pierce Bronsan and more. How accurate some of them are is uncanny, but watching Steve & Rob interact in character is often hilarious.
