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

One of the film's titles, "The Brothers Grimsby", which is what the movie is known as in the USA, can be interpreted as play on the title "The Brothers Grimm", which became well known first from the classic Hollywood movie The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm (1962). The most recent cinema movie with this title was about a decade prior to The Brothers Grimsby (2016) with The Brothers Grimm (2005). Sound department ADR (additional dialogue recording) mixer Chris Navarro worked on both pictures. Navarro has also worked on Brothers (2009), The Brothers Solomon (2007), and Brothers Three: An American Gothic (2007). See more »

Goofs

When Chilcott locates Sebastian in Grimsby, the laser pointer dot and the beam it leaves are visible on one of men in the pub. The beam from a laser pointer is only visible if it's going through smoke, fog, or another visible gas. The air in the pub is very clear so the beam wouldn't be visible. See more »

User Reviews

 
Great Parody, Gross Humour, overall a really funny movie
29 May 2016 | by traviscornellSee all my reviews

I laughed a lot at this movie, and that is the soul criteria I measure a comedy on. Did I laugh? Yes! This movie had a lot of funny scenes (especially if you understand the English).

It's not his finest work, but it's a very good comedy overall. Good take on the working English class, Football Hooligans, Spy Movies.

To the people trashing this movie, clearly they are offended by the very offside humour in this picture. I thought they where too much truthfully at times (Elephant Scene), but overall it didn't ruin the many other funny moments in this movie.

Definitely worth a watch, lots of fun.
