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

There is a post credit scene where the brothers ask for directions, then "leave no witnesses" See more »
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 »

Ive seen worse Brit Coms
Its not the best Sasha film by a long chalk and i doubt that it will translate over the pond or Channel very well, but it as its moments, shame that they seem to be repetitive in one form or another.
Rebel Wilson always adds on a point to any film hence why this 5 became a 6 for me.
Some funny moments, some flat moments but i suppose it depends on how easy you are entertained. Got a feeling East Yorkshire / Humbersiders might score it higher.
