The Brothers Grimsby is an action comedy spy spoof about Nobby, a poor lower class bloke with eleven children and his brother Sebastian, a top MI6 agent who are accidentally reunited when their paths cross during an assassination attempt at a high-profile public event. Underlying the hilariously crude and slapstick comedy is a credible action movie with a surprising hint of an endearing family story that Cohen fans should appreciate (Klaus Ming June 2016).
