Trailer: The Trip to Spain

When it was released in 2011, I found The Trip wonderfully entertaining and it remains one of my default go-to movies to this day. The Trip and its sequels are essentially a compilation of highlights from the BBC show. In The Trip, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon explore the English countryside as in search of good cuisine as food reviewers for The Observer. They exchange quips, find interesting locals, and explore foggy, magnificent British landscapes along the way.

Better yet, The Trip was set to a pensive soundtrack of Michael Nyman with a bit of Joy Division, which was perfect for the setting.

Following The Trip came the sequel, The Trip to Italy, and while they used much the same formula as the first, it was satisfyingly enjoyable. The subtle humor that the two can’t help but to convey makes this series worthwhile, again and again.

The next, The Trip to Spain, will be released in theaters on August 11th.

After jaunts through northern England and Italy, 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. As always, the locales are breathtaking, the cuisine to die for, and the humor delightfully devilish.
