THE TRIP TO SPAIN — Steve and Rob are at it again…..

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.

"Behind the gags, the barbs, the wordplay, and the many, many impressions lurks a sadness...By definition, the pervasion of this theme may make The Trip to Spain the least funny of its brethren so far. But it also makes it the most interesting." -- Michael Arbeiter, Nerdist

"Like a fine wine or a stinky cheese, Winterbottom's The Trip movies have only gotten more mature with age, and Spain is the most thoughtful one yet." -- Erin Oliver Whitney, ScreenCrush
