Movie: The Trip to Italy

Usually for a comedy, the best jokes are in the trailer. So it was a pleasant surprise that the majority of the jokes in the trailer were actually the first part of scenes of longer, funnier dialogue: there were lots of laugh-out-loud moments, the scenery was amazing, the food looked amazing. There was a lot to enjoy.

The genius of it, though, is the transition back and forth from the surreal conversations to the real-world of the restaurants, and the more mundane aspects of relationships and life that creep through. It’s not an unreserved recommendation: there was a subplot that was a bit sad (I can’t say more without risking spoilers), and there’s a lot of fairly choice language throughout.
