THE TRIP TO SPAIN (2017 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

The Trip to Spain follows the same pattern as the first two films in the seriesSteve Coogan and Rob Brydon take a road trip through a country, eat well at many restaurants, discuss their personal lives, do impersonations, and come home. This film, as did its predecessors, presents entertainment fare with a rather depressing, dreary weariness as if boredom can best be served on a gourmet platter. The movie delivers very low-key British humor more appropriate for mature audiences.

Storyline

Steve (Steve Coogan) and Rob (Rob Brydon) take a third road trip. This trip takes their audience through Spain.

Additional Thanks

Thank You to Director Michael Winterbottom for directing efforts. Thank you to Producers Josh Hyams, Stefano Negri, and Melissa Parmenter for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Yolanda (Marta Barrio), Emma (Claire Keelan), Busker (Tom Clegg), UK Agent (Justin Edwards), Sally (Rebecca Johnson), Joe (Timothy Leach), Matt (Kerry Shale), Jonathan (Kyle Soller), and Mischa (Margo Stilley).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. All three road trips reveal gourmet food as increasingly boring, sparsely served, and as undifferentiated as the landscapes in which it is found.
