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

Trivia

With Sacha Baron Cohen's surreal mind, as a co-writer of the screenplay, he dreamed up quite a bit of punishment for the actors. "One particular day, Sacha fell on me and smashed a bottle over my head repeatedly," says Mark Strong. "Then I was drowned in a car; I was trapped in a tiny, sleeping bag-sized costume; I had a day on the African plain in freezing cold winds; and I was subjected to three days in a small house with Nobby's entire family. It wasn't just Sebastian enduring these tasks - it was me." See more »

Alternate Versions

In Singapore, before the film could receive an official classification (R21) the company were required to remove a scene depicting a man sucking the poison out from his friend's testicles as the latter has been injected in the groin with a poisonous dart. The scene which features close-up shots of the man's scrotum, and brief shots of the man's penis in the other man's mouth. The scenes above have exceeded the Classification Guidelines which state that "exploitative and excessive nudity" is not allowed for all ratings. See more »

What Happened to Samuel L. Jackson . He should be the 3rd Brother .
26 May 2016 | by mikevonbachSee all my reviews

Was a it a spoof on spy films ? Samuel l.Jackson was asked to do this film ,But he was Shooting the Hateful 8 And sasha Told Rolling stone magazine that he would never take sloppy seconds after Tarantino Again . I feel That Sasha should have waited for Sam Jackson,He would have brought the kind of Humor & Flavor to this film that was needed to make it the over the top Laughfest that Sasha Fans the world over xpected . I'm sitting in a submarine In the middle of the china sea they give us one movie a week to watch as a treat . Why the crew chief chose this film I will never know,On account our mission is TOP SECRET . Well if you like nut sack jokes and heroin gags YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE . But if you happen to be 1 & 1/2 miles under water looking for some entertainment VIA A funny film this will not Float your boat .Sacha Baron Cohen is back with his COCK in your face humour, did you expect anything else. A fully produced movie that's rude in your face politically incorrect and will more than likely offend those sensitive movie goers.

Reunited by chance with his brother after 28 years played by Mark Strong. Wrongfully accused the 2 battle it out against henchmen, spies and all sorts of bad guys to save themselves and the world.

Baron Cohen playing the dumb lower socio-economic lead so well and only complimented by Strong's solid hard lined acting. It's a good mix of real world situations and over the top action fight scenes that would be on par with any Hollywood film, extreme shock comedy and moments that will literally make you gag.

I see it as a spy parody that works well and there hasn't been one for ages. The line up of celebrities is nothing to poke a stick at Cohen's real world wife Australian actress Isla Fisher plays a major part and does it well and fellow Australian Rebel Wilson playing the wife of Nobby also nails the part. But does let her Aussie accent slip a little.

Is it Cohen's best probably not. That's because I'm a huge Samuel L. Jackson fan. But it's surely a close number 4. I'd probably put it in the same basket as Honey boo boo .

Fart Jokes,and turd jokes while still pulling out college dorm pranks won't keep me satisfied from start to finish. A solid 6 out of 10 you may be disappointed.
