Synopsis: 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. Six meals in six different places on a road trip from the North Atlantic to the Mediterranean coast–visiting Cantabria, the Basque region, Aragon, Rioja, Castile La Mancha and ending in Andalucia. 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 humour delightfully devilish.

A jaunty, funny, entertaining personal and geographical journey, brushing up against moments of truth that can sting. -Flavorwire

If you’re a fan of the first two movies, it’s hard to imagine that you won’t like this one. -Variety
