The Trip to Italy, September 12

Four years ago, two friends embarked on a tasting trip across the English country, and now, they're hungry for more. The Trip to Italy is basically like The Trip, except with Italian restaurants. Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon once again get sent on assignment to eat at a bunch of fancy restaurants and keep each other company in the meantime. The two share witty banter throughout their journey and -- much like the first trip -- the film ends up being more about their personal journeys than the cuisine they set out to consume, all while keeping the jokes steadily roasting.

This is Where I Leave You, September 19

Another book to screen adaption, This is Where I Leave You brings Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Jane Fonda, Rose Byrne, Adam Driver, and Connie Britton together under one roof -- literally. The troupe plays a family who is brought together by the passing of the patriarch and are forced to get along. Normally, that much talent tagged to a film title would make one weary, but the quality of these actors makes us more excited. Plus, we're suckers for a heart-warming comedy.
