The Trip to Spain

The Trip to Spain

Average Rating:
Rate this:
Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on another deliciously deadpan culinary road trip. This time around, the guys head to Spain to sample the best of the country's gastronomic offerings in between rounds of their hilariously off-the-cuff banter. Over plates of pintxos and paella, the pair exchange barbs and their patented celebrity impressions, as well as more serious reflections on what it means to settle into middle age.

Two middle-aged U.K. men travel across Spain, eating and living their lives. There's occasional banter but in general, this is just what it sounds like and not very interesting. There's also an odd moment when they dress up like Don Quixote and Pancho, which doesn't make sense and isn't the most diplomatic acknowledgment of a Spanish classic.

My Australian husband loved this movie and laughed to so much of it. I liked the movie also, although I did not tune quite as much into the humor. All of the goofy impressions in the movie were of British show biz people, which resonate a bit less with Americans.

I loved the glimpses of various parts of Spain that we plan to visit this year. I recommend this movie as light entertainment to anyone, and it is a fun few points for someone going on their own road trip through Spain.

The formula is wearing thin. This is not a patch on the previous two Trip movies. Don't bother with it unless you simply want to enjoy the landscape of Spain.

I will say after watching all three Trip films that it takes a bit of time to get used to the humor. That being said the series is about two middle age actors/comedians who reveal the angst of trying to be successful in a highly competitive field. Their impressions of more famous contemporaries reveal their envy for those they pretend to disdain. Trip to Spain reveals the self loathing that the original movie hinted at and the result is a bitter sweet commentary of the British Entertainment industry if not British culture. Is it rip roaring hilarious? No. Don't expect slap stick and one liners. Expect a lot of wit and self reflection about growing old that is more sad than funny, but worth the trip.

Third time boring, with 2 so-so actors (don't trust the Photoshopped DVD cover without pock-marked faces, and thinning hair) mouthing Brando, Cruise, Sir Ian, and dropping names (Laurie Lee of Roses in Winter). The photogenic locations are OK and the food porn not bad, BUT do all this make the film any better? For more MATURE enjoyment, check out La Sapienza, if you are young enough to appreciate architecture, or Dinner with André, if you are old enough to know Wallace Shawn and Louis Malle.

Boring beyond bearable. A tawdry repeat of a once funny idea.

After their 2014 "The Trip to Italy," the two actors drove from Santander to Málaga. Same delightful and enlightening bantering with great food, historic sites, Spanish arts etc. Locations: Getaria, Basque Country, Cave of Altamira, Hondarribia, Sos del Rey Católico ... La Mancha (Don Quixote country), Sigüenza, Andalusia etc. Most entertaining dialogue was the word play and tit-for-tat on Roger Moore and Moors near the end of their trip. LOL!

Not at all funny. Two men who love to talk, mostly about themselves and think they’re funny. The first time I saw them was doing the trip in England. That was fresh and funny, but not this. Could only stand them blathering on for about ten minutes.

I'm a big fan of the Moors.
-Oh, Dudley Moore, Christy Moore, Patrick Moore?
No more, please.
- Roger Moore.
The thing about doing Roger Moore.
Less is more.
-Ah, you've met my brother Les. Les, come in.
That's right, I'm also a Moore. Les Moore.
They introduced the orange to Spain.
- The Moors?
You've stopped saying Moores, and you've started saying Muslims. And I find that a little racially offensive.
- Go on, please.
You started off referring to us as the Moores, now you're referring to us as Muslims.
-The Moors were Muslims.
But why did you start with Moores?
- It doesn't matter. The people that I'm talking about were one and the same Moors with the Muslims.
I'm not Roger Muslim, I'm Roger Moore.
- Dear god.
