The Plot:

Dimwitted Nobby lives in an English fishing town with his loving girlfriend and nine children. For the last 28 years, he's been searching for his long-lost brother Sebastian. When the two finally reunite, Nobby finds out that his sibling is a top MI6 agent who's just uncovered a sinister plot. Wrongfully accused and on the run, Sebastian now realizes that he needs Nobby's help to save the world and prove his innocence.

The Verdict:

Since the film is a Sacha Baron-Cohan movie just expect to be shocked and wetting your pants in laughter. Sacha past films, Borat and the Dictator, have all crossed the line between crude and offensive with his movie style making headlines around the world for its warnings. But The Brothers Grimsby is a tamer movie with its storyline centered around the reuniting of two long last brothers.

When Nobby and Sebastian were young their parents were killed forcing the two brothers from Grimsby into the foster system. With only one of the brothers, Sebastian, being fostered out to a upper class family.

Nobby has never given up on trying to find his brother even resorting to enlisting everyone he knows to look for him anywhere in the world.

All of Nobbys searching pays off when one of his friends hears they may have found Sebastian and he will be attending a swanky event.

Nobby, a hardcore English football loving fanatic, heads to the event where he does anything but fit into the event. His brother, Sebastian is a secret agent for an arm of MI6 who is at the event to protect the main speaker, Rhonda George, played by Penelope Cruz, who happens to be the head of a not for profit company 'World Cure'. But the event decends into utter mayhem when Nobby makes himself known to his long lost brother and Sebastian shoots the Head of World Health automatically making him a fugitive and forcing him to try and clear his name.

In true Sacha style this movie makes fun of Daniel Radcliffe and Donald Trump contracting HIV to Nobby and his brother hiding in an elephants womb while a line of male elephants 'interact' with her.

Will this football fanatic Nobby be able to help his brother save the world or will he just get in the way?
