An Idiot Abroad (2010)

An Idiot Abroad

Ricky Gervais is up to his usual tricks as he and pal Stephen Merchant send the 'idiot', Karl Pilkington, to each of the Seven Wonders of the World. They say that travel broadens the mind but some of the experiences Ricky and Stephen cook up for Karl have him longing for the comfort of an armchair.
