The movie The Brothers Grimsby is a 2016 action-comedy film directed by Louis Leterrier and written by Sacha Baron Cohen, Phil Johnston, and Peter Baynham. The movie stars Sacha Baron Cohen as Nobby, Mark Strong as his brother Sebastian, and Rebel Wilson as Lindsey. The plot of the movie revolves around two brothers, Nobby and Sebastian, who were separated at a young age. While Nobby went on to lead a simple life in Grimsby, Sebastian became a highly trained MI6 agent. Nobby is a father of 11 children and lives with his girlfriend in his hometown Grimsby. Life had been good to Nobby until he is reunited with his long lost brother, Sebastian, whom he had been searching for years, and suddenly his life turns upside down. The reunion takes place when Sebastian is on a mission to stop an international terrorist plot. In the midst of the mission, the two brothers reunite, and Nobby unwittingly ruins Sebastian's operation, forcing the two brothers to go on the run. To clear Sebastian's name and stop the terrorist plot, the brothers must work together. But, due to Nobby's overzealousness and incompetence, they end up in hilarious and awkward situations that keep them from their goal. Along the way, the brothers encounter a range of eccentric characters, including a provocative animal-rights activist, a cocaine-snorting millionaire, and a pack of savage wild animals. The movie is a blend of action and comedy, and both genres are executed with flair. There are some really intense action sequences, including a chase involving a John Deere tractor that will leave you on the edge of your seat. However, the comedy is the standout aspect of the movie, with Sacha Baron Cohen delivering some of his best comedic performances. The humor in the movie is extremely crude and vulgar, which some viewers may find offensive. However, if you're a fan of Sacha Baron Cohen's previous works, such as Borat and Bruno, you'll know what to expect. Mark Strong's performance as Sebastian is brilliant. He plays the straight man to Cohen's hysterical Nobby, providing an excellent foil to Cohen's comedic antics. Rebel Wilson is hilarious in her role as Lindsey, Nobby's girlfriend. She brings her trademark raunchy humor to the movie and steals every scene she's in. Overall, The Brothers Grimsby is a hilarious and entertaining movie that delivers both action and comedy in equal measure. While the humor may not be to everyone's tastes, fans of Sacha Baron Cohen's previous works will certainly enjoy the movie. The chemistry between Cohen and Strong is excellent, and the supporting cast is superb. The movie is definitely worth a watch if you're in the mood for a good laugh.
