GIVEAWAY | The Trip to Spain

5 double passes up for grabs

Thanks to MADMAN Entertainment we have 5 in-season double passes to the THE TRIP TO SPAIN up for grabs for 5 lucky readers. There’s also an actual culinary trip to Spain on the cards as well!







The Trip to Spain reunites director Michael Winterbottom and comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon for a satisfying third course of witty banter, hilarious impersonations, gorgeous Spanish sights and mouth watering food.


If you ask me it should be called ‘A Taste of Spain’ because that’s exactly what you get. A taste of the food and a taste of the countryside with a big dish of Steve and Rob’s comedic talents. Six meals in six different places on a road trip through Spain from the North Atlantic to the Mediterranean coast- visiting Cantabria, the Basque region, Aragon, Rioja, Castile La Mancha and ending in Andalucia.


Steve, now 50, is still chasing love – he wants to get back together with his ex-girlfriend Mischa, but she is with another man. Rob’s acting career is going from strength to strength, his family life is fulfilling – he has had another child since Steve last saw him.


Steve has just starred as a chef in a US TV series and is asked to do a set of restaurant reviews in Spain to publicise the show. As usual Rob will write the newspaper articles, this time using Don Quixote as inspiration. Meanwhile Steve is hoping to write a more ambitious book based on this trip and his earlier experiences in Spain. He imagines himself in the tradition of writers such as Orwell, Hemingway, and Laurie Lee. After all, Steve is now an Oscar nominated writer.


Much like the two previous films The Trip and The Trip to Italy, Rob and Steve follow a similar format with witty conversations and hilarious impersonations on their travels, as they play semi-fictionalised versions of themselves. A format that seems to work. It’s probably just me but unlike the first two courses, I felt the third course dropped pace and lost its appetite around the ¾ mark. I found myself wanting more of the food, travel and witty banter side of things and less of the ho-hum.


It will be interesting to see if there is a fourth or dessert course. Perhaps a dessert course in the desert.

  • I haven’t seen the other movies but the trailer looks hilarious! I love the idea of exploring the sights and tastes of Spain without having to leave my cinema seat!

    • Me too with the cinema seat exploring but I pretty much came home from the cinema and looked up flights to Spain. I’m hoping we can score the cheap flights to Greece that are supposedly happening from lunch time today with Scoot. Fingers crossed.

  • Sounds like a great movie (if I close my eyes maybe I could really be in Spain). #teamIBOT

    • It certainly has me craving another overseas trip.

    • I wish I was in Spain. Although after my recent trip to Sydney, where just about everything went wrong (including a cancelled flight), I’m probably best to head to the movies for a bit of escapism.

  • I saw the shorts to this recently, and it looks fantastic! I would love to travel to Spain, my daughter visited just last month and her pictures were amazing.

    • The food and scenery were impressive. Makes me want to jump on a flight.

  • Haven’t seen either movie but looks like fun! And something hubby would like 🙂 (Often a point of contention in our place)

    • Yes, here too. Although, I’ve been known to drag him along to the odd chick flick.

  • I LOVED the trip – the Michael Cain impression had me in stitches.

  • Pauline Olsen

    I loved the first two, and this “third course” sounds fun. I like your idea of a possible dessert course in the desert too!

    • It will be interesting to see if there is a third course.

  • Well I live in Spain, so I don’t necessarily need to enter. However I can say that Spain is just as amazing as it sounds. I’m so glad the tour ends in Andalucia because that’s where I live!

    • This film certainly had an interesting ending.
