“The Brothers Grimsby,” also known as “Grimsby,” is a 2016 British-American action comedy film directed by Louis Leterrier and starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Mark Strong, Penélope Cruz, Rebel Wilson, and Isla Fisher.
The film follows Nobby (Sacha Baron Cohen), a dim-witted but lovable soccer hooligan from the town of Grimsby, who reunites with his long-lost brother Sebastian (Mark Strong), a highly skilled MI6 spy. When the two brothers team up to prevent a global terrorist attack, they find themselves on the run from both the terrorists and the government.
While “Grimsby” received mixed reviews from critics, it did not receive any major awards or nominations. However, the film was praised for its over-the-top humor and action sequences, as well as the chemistry between Sacha Baron Cohen and Mark Strong. Despite its lack of awards recognition, “Grimsby” has become a cult favorite among fans of Sacha Baron Cohen's irreverent comedy style.
