MI6's top assassin has a brother. Unfortunately for him, he's a football hooligan 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. 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.
This movie flopped, but I was so surprised that it did not do well. It was pretty funny. I had not even heard of it or seen a trailer for it. There was so silly parts to the movie, and they were some scenes that some people will find to be too much for them. They suck.
Sacha Baron Cohen did what he does best, being offensively funny. There are some great funny scenes in this movie with him. I wish Rebel Wilson was in the movie a bit more. She was good in what little time she spent in the movie. Gabourey Sidibe was okay in the movie. Almost anyone could have played that part. She did not stand out at all really. Again, Mark Strong could have been someone else.
This was good, but I do not really know if it is a rewatcher or not. It may be for some. It is worth at least watching once. Enjoy.
