The Brothers Grimsby


brothersgrimsbyIn the middle of an assassination attempt, two British brothers are suddenly reunited for the first time since they were kids – one of them a suave, deadly secret agent, the other a moronic, soccer-loving working-class father of nine. Another Sacha Baron Cohen comedy in the same vein as The Dictator (2012) – unbelievably crass, but more childish than genuinely provocative. Cohen creates a new outrageous character and it’s fun watching him team up with an admirably straight-faced Mark Strong as the agent, but too many jokes just fall flat.

2016-Britain. 83 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Louis Leterrier. Screenplay: Sacha Baron Cohen, Phil Johnston, Peter Baynham. Cast: Sacha Baron Cohen (Norman “Nobby” Grimsby), Mark Strong (Sebastian Graves), Rebel Wilson (Dawn), Isla Fisher, Penélope Cruz, Ian McShane… Gabourey Sidibe.

Trivia: Alternative title: Grimsby.
