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

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) have stated on their website regarding the film's English rating: "During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission . . . This film was originally shown to the BBFC, for advice, in an incomplete form. The BBFC advised the company it was likely to be classified 18 but that their preferred 15 could be achieved by making reductions to a couple of scenes of crude humor. When the film was submitted for formal classification, these sequences had been acceptably reduced". 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 »

Love it or hate it

And I'm not telling you what to do, I'm kind of telling you what possibilities are after watching this. It is very likely that it won't leave you cold. It's almost impossible to not have strong feelings towards what you will get served. And all that with something that stretches the word "quality" so wide, you could fit a ton of (insert something to your liking here) ... Does that sound like something you want to see? It apparently sounded like something Mark Strong wanted to be a part of.

Which when you think about the class this thespian represents (if you know him), will shock you very much. The lengths he goes through and the puns he doesn't pull out from (other things are being pulled out of and from, but that's a different story) ... it's almost remarkable. There are so many "what the ..." moments, that I'm not sure what to call this. Shocking? Definitely. Irritating? You bet. Funny? Well that depends on your taste ... in humor that is amongst other things. But if you feel like this is a low blow (it is) and not worth you time, just stop watching it ...
