The only thing better than watching people eat delicious food in gorgeous locations – besides actually eating it yourself – is watching two comedians do it. Michael Winterbottom launched what would become a beloved trilogy back in 2010 with The Trip, which began as a BBC Television miniseries with episodes edited into a feature-length versions. The first film found comedian-actors Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon traveling across Yorkshire devouring scrumptious meals and showing off their best celebrity impressions. After reuniting for a second course in The Trip to Italy in 2014, the two are back for a third excursion in The Trip to Spain, a delight that adds some introspective notes to the series.
Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan’s The Trip franchise is quite possibly the most pure and fun series of films out there. Sure, you’ve got your Avengers and your X-Men and your Dom Torettos, but sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and enjoy two hilarious actors go on road trips across Europe together. We’ve been with them through England, Italy, and now they’re off to gorge themselves on pasta primavera in Spain, and we’ve got your first look at the road ahead.
Besties Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan are back in action for The Trip to Spain, the third in what’s become a runaway franchise for the two actors, as they travel the world, sample local cuisine, and become better friends by the day. In this new clip debuted by Sky Atlantic, the two buds bounce their Michael Caine and Mick Jagger impressions off of each other over glasses of wine.
This past August brought the welcome news that Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly would share the screen in Holmes & Watson, a comic send-up of Arthur Conan Doyle’s legendary literary detective Sherlock Holmes and his trusty sidekick John Watson. Before we go any further, though, let’s all take a moment to revisit Ferrell and Reilly’s magnificent performance of “Con te Partirò” at the motherf---ing Catalina Wine Mixer in Step Brothers.
