Like a Spanish/Argentinian twist on the famous Bing Crosby-Bob Hope “Road” comedies of the 1940s and 50s, Taxi to Treasure Rock is a full-throttle delight of sight gags, hilarious one-liners and side-splitting adventure comedy. It’s no wonder that this film is one of the top 3 comedies of the year at the Spanish box office.

Freshly released from a Madrid prison, Argentinian con artist and professional charmer Diego has one idea to rebuild his life: finding a lost stash of gold hidden inside the legendary Rock of Gibraltar. Diego puts his snake charmer ways to convince León (Dani Rovira of the Ocho appellidos vascos films), a misanthropic, miserly taxi driver flooded with debt and rage against the system, to drive him from Madrid to Gibraltar.

On their chaotic road trip they meet Sandra (Ingrid García-Jonsson), a runaway bride-to-be who is just enough of a misfit to connect with Diego and León, and join their eccentric, life-changing adventure.

This screening is sponsored by Viendomovies available with Xfinity and FlixLatino.
