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.

Nobby goes quite a distance to buy his mattress at the beginning of the film, as the bus he gets on goes via Grays, and that particular service and route is in South East Essex.
Also, the train pulling into Grimsby Town is the type used by the C2C service, which is the London Fenchurch Street to Southend line, also in South East Essex. See more »

I'm a big Sacha Baron Cohen fan. I particularly love him in his documentary-style movies where he uses real people in each scenes and plays his character around them. He's now proved with both 'The Dictator' and 'Grimsby' that he can write very well in the standard comedy style as well. The thing I like most about his films is that nothing is off limits. Any thing can be said, any event can happen and no one is safe from his ridicule. There is one scene in 'Grimsby' that is particularly offensive and shocking to watch. I had seen a clip on Jimmy Kimmel's show where the audience were seen reacting to this scene (a very clever marketing ploy) and now I can fully understand their disgust and discomfort at what they were watching. He pushed it to the limit with that one.
There's more here than just shock value though. The dialogue is constantly clever and witty whilst always adhering to Cohen's unique style. Sometimes it's almost like he struggles with the pacing of his comedy because the audience isn't even finished laughing at one joke and another hilarious one is being thrown out there. The thing that made this better than 'The Dictator' for me though was the story. The action was genuinely entertaining and interesting. Combine excellent action and hilarious comedy and the already short runtime absolutely flies by.
