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

The Deadline website states: "Deadline heard that when The Brothers Grimsby left Paramount in early 2014 for Sony, it carried an estimated production cost of $80M. Before rebates at Sony, budget was at $60M. LStar Capital and Village Roadshow co-funded with Sony, the latter of which has an estimated $37M skin in the game. Since the film arrived at Sony during the pre-Tom Rothman administration, it's faced uphill battles. Testing began early and there was a consistent rejection of concept and star. Sony bounced The Brothers Grimsby around the calendar, first slotting July 31, 2015. But then Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015) moved to that date and you can't have spy vs. spy. So [The] Brothers Grimsby [aka Grimsby] moved to February 26, 2016, then March 4 [, 2016], and finally March 11 [, 2016]." See more »
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 »

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 »
Great Parody, Gross Humour, overall a really funny movie
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.
