The Trip to Spain - anything to gain?
14 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

As is the case with the previously released trips ('The Trip', 2010 and 'The Trip to Italy', 2014) with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, so it is with 'The Trip to Spain' that it does not really play out as a film but rather an extended TV show. Which it is. Although actually shortened and combined from the six episodes of the last (third) series.

What kind of show exactly is 'The Trip' itself, is quite difficult to determine because although the trips are partly to do with reviewing food, a minuscule amount of comments made on the subject actually reach the viewer. Same is with visiting different locations, though at least in that aspect there are small bits of useful information pointed out every now and again. Though it's hardly ever an extensive introduction to the place visited. It's not a documentary even though it might come across as such. Calling it a talk show wouldn't be quite right either. In a way it is a different version of 'Top Gear' with just as beautiful camera work but less information and unfortunately - as it is listed under comedy - jokes.

Steve and Rob get on with their usual antics which obviously include a lot of impressions, but it gets old at some point and I truly don't want the hear either of them say: "I told you to blow the bloody doors off" and then try to settle on the age of the voice etc. It's the constant competition between the two who's better at impressions which includes mimicking mainly just one sentence over and over and over and over and over and over again. Which brings me the horrific flashbacks from watching 'Dude Where's My Car' as a teen and not being amused. However, I can respect, accept and enjoy repetition (British comic Stuart Lee is a great example), but it has to serve a purpose. At the moment were not watching a film, ahem, TV show. We're watching to guys rehearsing for it. Despite that I'm not calling the show unfunny. No, far from it. 'The Trip to Spain' is still humorous. Just not necessarily laughing out loud funny. It has it's better moments though.

So basically, if you've enjoyed the previous films or TV series, you can probably appreciate this one as well, if not, then there's nothing that will convince you otherwise. It has its entertainment value but not for everyone. If I had enough money to go out for even one meal like in the film with a friend, I would've done that instead and had much more fun. But on the other hand perhaps wouldn't have learned all I know about the invasion of Spain by Roger Moors.
