The Trip to Spain

 

Rated NR · 110 minutes · 2017

Comedy
With this third theatrical spin-off, the British miniseries The Trip has graduated to a genuine franchise: it's like the Fast and the Furious movies, but with celebrity impressions instead of hot rods. Following The Trip (2010) and The Trip to Italy (2014), Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon (playing themselves) set off on a tour of Spanish restaurants with scrumptious food and spectacular views, where they needle each other, pontificate about Don Quixote, and workshop their impressions of David Bowie, John Hurt, Ian McKellen, and Roger Moore, among others. (This comic motif, a mainstay of the series, crosses through the looking glass when Brydon mimics Mick Jagger, whom he met at a party, trying to do Michael Caine.) Joke for joke, this is much funnier than Italy, predicated as always on Coogan's vanity and insecurity.
