Storyline

MI6's top assassin (Mark Strong) has a brother. Unfortunately for him, he's a football hooligan (Sacha Baron Cohen) from the town of Grimsby. 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 Sony Pictures Entertainment

Great Parody, Gross Humour, overall a really funny movie
29 May 2016 | by (Toronto, Ontario) – See all my reviews

I laughed a lot at this movie, and that is the soul criteria I measure a comedy on. Did I laugh? Yes! This movie had a lot of funny scenes (especially if you understand the English).

It's not his finest work, but it's a very good comedy overall. Good take on the working English class, Football Hooligans, Spy Movies.

To the people trashing this movie, clearly they are offended by the very offside humour in this picture. I thought they where too much truthfully at times (Elephant Scene), but overall it didn't ruin the many other funny moments in this movie.

Definitely worth a watch, lots of fun.
