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 look of Sacha Baron Cohen's character, most particularly the hair and sideburns, is heavily reflective of that of Liam Gallagher, frontman of world famous 90s-00s rock band Oasis. The pair had a dispute around 2012. Cohen later said: "I thought to avoid confrontation by having my hair done like him in my next movie." The Mirror newspaper also reported that Cohen "based his look in [the] new film The Brothers Grimsby (2016) on the former Oasis frontman". See more »

Goofs

Nobby goes quite a distance to buy his mattress at the beginning of the film, as the bus he gets on goes via Grays, and that particular service and route is in South East Essex. Also, the train pulling into Grimsby Town is the type used by the C2C service, which is the London Fenchurch Street to Southend line, also in South East Essex. See more »

There are some scenes in this movie I can never un-see. That being said...I really really enjoyed this and recommend it.
17 June 2016 | by cosmo_tigerSee all my reviews

"We're the butcher boys of Grimsby. They'll never split us up." Sebastian (Strong) is an undercover assassin who is the best at what he does. His brother Nobby (Cohen) is not as smart, but loves his wife and family. The two haven't seen each other in many many years so when Nobby finally locates him he is incredibly happy, but when he messes up an attempt by Sebastian to save someone both brothers are instantly wanted by the police. Now, Nobby and Sebastian must out run the law, and find a way to save the world. This is a movie I was very worried about. Cohen, to me, is very hit or miss. I though Borat was funny, hated Bruno, loved The Dictator, and the previews for this movie didn't really get me excited to watch it. After seeing this I understood why the previews were the way they are, most of this movie is so over the top and offensive pretty much the only things they could show were in the previews. There are some scenes in this movie I can never un- see. That being said...I really really enjoyed this. I watched it alone and laughed out loud over and over again, while at the same time turning away and watching through my fingers. Cohen has a history of pushing the envelope and he really holds nothing back in this one. Overall, hilarious and extremely over the top and offensive, if you are easily offended skip this one. I thought it was great and for those that can handle it without getting upset I would recommend it. I very surprisingly give this a B+.
