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

Laugh out loud, while trying not to gag. I loved it!
Sacha Baron Cohen is back with his shock and 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. Thats because I'm a huge Ali g fan. But it's surely a close number 2. I'd probably put it in the same basket as The Kingsman.
Grossed out, laugh out loud movie while still pulling on heart strings and keeping me satisfied from start to finish. A solid 8 out of 10 you won't be disappointed.
