Storyline

MI6's top assassin (Mark Strong) has a brother. Unfortunately for him, he's an English football supporter (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

Trivia

This was the second film distributed by Sony / Columbia Pictures in two years to provoke controversy from a political leader. In 2015, The Interview (2014) sparked furor amongst North Koreans about the depiction of its leader Jong-un Kim, which allegedly led to the Sony hacking which reportedly revealed confidential emails and information about the James Bond movie Spectre (2015).The Brothers Grimsby (2016), has been controversial due to its depiction of a joke relating to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Goofs

When Nobby shows smartphone photos to his kids, the edge of the phone is white with black corners, but when Sebastian takes the phone the edge is entirely black. Likewise, when it was in Nobby's hand the back of the phone was white, but when Sebastian makes a call with it, the back is black. Finally, while Sebastian is holding the phone (the black-backed version), there is a cut back to Nobby and the kids where Nobby is also holding the phone (the white-backed version). See more »

Not laughed so much at the cinema since the parole officer
25 February 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Went to watch Grimsby last night on a whim and ended up having a great time. Not everyone's cup of tea I'm sure, but surely anyone going to see this new Sacha Baron Cohen film knows exactly what they are going to get.

To be honest I was amazed how good the action scenes where played out, they could rival any serious action movie, however I was there for the comedy and that's what I got, I don't want to spoil this movie but I can't remember the last time I cried with laughter or cringed at the same time I was laughing, everyone in the cinema was in hysterics at some of the parts, an overly long scene featuring Elephants (I'll say no more) made my face and stomach hurt i was laughing that hard.

Rebel Wilson was great I love her in everything I watch her in, her Aussie accent did come out a few times which I forgive her for, but the line she delivered "am not pregnant am just fu*kin fat" was as Northern as they come.

Go see this movie, you'll laugh, you'll cringe, you'll feel ashamed of yourself for laughing at some parts but you'll be entertained, I promise.

I do think Sacha Baron Cohen needs to go see a doctor, maybe a psychiatrist as no one should be thinking up stuff like this, it's wrong.

As for people getting upset about the movie making fun of Grimsby, come on it's a joke, I haven't been their but I'm intelligent enough to know its completely exaggerated for comic effect, I'm from the North, Lancashire, actually and the funniest thing is how many people I meet in London through work who think I come from a similar place...
