Grimsby

Spy comedy from Sacha Baron Cohen. Mark Strong is a deadly MI6 agent forced to go on the run with his idiot football hooligan brother Nobby (Cohen). Co-stars Rebel Wilson and Isla Fisher. From the director of Now You See Me and The Transporter.

Nobby has everything a man from Grimsby (in northeast Britain) could want, including 11 children and the most gorgeous girlfriend in England (Wilson). But there's one thing missing: his little brother, Sebastian, who Nobby has spent 28 years searching for after they were separated as kids. Nobby sets off to reunite with Sebastian, unaware that not only is his brother MI6's deadliest assassin, but he's just uncovered plans for an imminent global terrorist attack. On the run and wrongfully accused, Sebastian realises that if he is going to save the world, he will need the help of its biggest idiot.

I’m not the type of person who physically reacts to gross-out gags or shock comedy, so I’ve got to give Grimsby props for making me think: “Wow, they went THERE…” This doesn’t just apply to the scene that scarred Jimmy Kimmel’s audience. It takes the film only five minutes to drop a Cosby joke, 10 minutes to make a visual AIDs gag, and 15 minutes to kill an innocent bystander simply for a laugh. That should give you plenty to judge whether or not this is your kind of comedy, and if it is, add another star to the rating.

Baron Cohen's unflinching ability to play dumb is still good for a few chuckles...

Works much better as a Bond-spoofing actioner than it does as a politically incorrect rib-tickler.

Its lack of sophistication, like its odd mix of souped-up action and base comedy, ultimately feels like a badge of honour.

I laughed, winced, gagged, then laughed even more.

Carries a weird overall feel, like kids' TV but produced on a lavish scale with added filth.

In a league of its own when it comes to audaciously filthy gags.

Baron Cohen and Strong are both robustly physical performers, and their finest moments are when they're grappling with each other...

It may occasionally shock a laugh from you, but between those moments your face will be a rictus of horror.
