Nobby has everything a man from the poor English fishing town of Grimsby could want - 9 children and the most attractive girlfriend in northern England (Rebel Wilson). There's only one thing missing in his life: his little brother, Sebastian. After they were adopted by different families as children, Nobby spent 28 years searching for him. Upon hearing of his location, Nobby sets off to reunite with his brother, unaware that not only is his brother an MI6 agent, but he's just uncovered a plot that puts the world in danger. On the run and wrongfully accused, Sebastian realizes that if he is going to save the world, he will need the help of its biggest idiot. Written by

During the pitch invasion scene, once the camera switches to the rear view up to just after the boys jump into the crowd, 'Sebastian' is quite obviously played by a much older, larger boy. See more »
I just finished watching this movie, and I say it all in my summary. After comedy after comedy that makes you grin slightly it was refreshing to see a movie that makes you laugh out loud. Often. There was one point where I was literally worried that I would die laughing. No joke. My health hasn't been the best, and I was laughing so deeply that I gave a little worry that my heart or lungs would pop. I stiffled myself. Didn't know what would happen if I just let it roll.
I'm sure that I will remember some things tomorrow that will make me want to take away a star or two, but right now I can't think of a way to make the movie better.
The two stars were a perfect match for each other. Their interactions actually made this movie work more than the laughs. Probably because they never do what you would expect them to do. I rarely like a movie where the next move is easily predicted.
This is easily the best comedy that I've seen since Borat. I get the feeling that Sasha and I have the same sense of humor.
