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

Goofs

During the pitch invasion scene, once the camera switches to the rear view up to just after the boys jump into the crowd, 'Sebastian' is quite obviously played by a much older, larger boy. See more »

Alternate Versions

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 »

Funny movie if you understand the English.
29 May 2016 | by pinkpooch27See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie but then I am from a Northern English City where it's OK to laugh at ourselves. Seems a lot of people (mainly Americans) are slating this movie, saying the humour and gags missed. No they didn't, you think they missed because you don't understand it. That's why American television got hold of Shameless an amazing working class series and remade it so Americans could get it. I really don't wish to be rude here but try getting out more, or reading more. For example, I know the history and reputation of Detroit, so if a joke is made about it referring to hard times, or poverty I get the joke, or reference. Why? Because I read and learn about other things other than my own back yard.

Anyway, with respect to people from Grimsby, it's a pit. Been there a few times, it stinks of fish, it has very poor areas and yeah there are a lot of fat people. But I tell you what, they are good funny people who will do anything for you.

I agree with some the movie didn't really have a point, it was just funny. Like I have said, funnier if you understand something more than the comfort of your own back yard.

Some good actors came together here to make a very decent comedy. Give it a try, it will make you laugh.
