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

Sacha Baron Cohen, who in real life is married to co-star Isla Fisher, in an interview said of his co-stars Rebel Wilson and Penélope Cruz: "Well, because I'm a method actor I would go home with Rebel Wilson at night. Actually, I should tell you that Rebel is pregnant and the studio is really pressuring her to have the baby at the premiere," he pauses. "No, no. On the contrary, it was actually great to work with somebody during the day and sleep in bed with them at night." He deadpans, "And I want to thank Penélope Cruz for that. She was amazing."

Good Lord this is filthy, and I laughed right through it, sometimes crying tears. I can totally see why some people would hate it, many scenes are hard to watch. The "plot" cracks along and the jokes are pretty much continuous, and filthy. Mark Strong not only makes a convincing James Bond type secret agent but is as equally committed to embracing the film's sense of humour, following Cohen into new filthy territory. Cohen, as usual, has no internal breaks and doesn't seem to be even trying to figure out where he should stop, he just keeps piling on the filth to levels hitherto undreamed of. The elephant bukake scene nearly broke me.
Being drunk will help, but you have to be able to enjoy filthy humour. Did I mention it's filthy?
