Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapaport run the celebrity tabloid show "Skylark Tonight". When they land an interview with a surprise fan, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, they are recruited by the CIA to assassinate him.
MI6's top assassin (Mark Strong) has a brother. Unfortunately for him, he's a football hooligan (Sacha Baron Cohen) from the town of Grimsby. Nobby has everything a man from the poor English fishing town of Grimsby could want - 9 children and the most attractive girlfriend in northern England (Rebel Wilson). There's only one thing missing in his life: his little brother, Sebastian. After they were adopted by different families as children, Nobby spent 28 years searching for him. Upon hearing of his location, Nobby sets off to reunite with his brother, unaware that not only is his brother an MI6 agent, but he's just uncovered a plot that puts the world in danger. On the run and wrongfully accused, Sebastian realizes that if he is going to save the world, he will need the help of its biggest idiot.Written by

The film opened on 24th February 2016 in the UK with publicity featuring a picture of Rebel Wilson and Sacha Baron Cohen boasting the slogan "Happy Valentines Day" - a joke, because the occasion is ten days earlier on the 14th of that month. See more »

I really enjoyed this movie but then I am from a Northern English City where it's OK to laugh at ourselves. Seems a lot of people (mainly Americans) are slating this movie, saying the humour and gags missed. No they didn't, you think they missed because you don't understand it. That's why American television got hold of Shameless an amazing working class series and remade it so Americans could get it. I really don't wish to be rude here but try getting out more, or reading more. For example, I know the history and reputation of Detroit, so if a joke is made about it referring to hard times, or poverty I get the joke, or reference. Why? Because I read and learn about other things other than my own back yard.
Anyway, with respect to people from Grimsby, it's a pit. Been there a few times, it stinks of fish, it has very poor areas and yeah there are a lot of fat people. But I tell you what, they are good funny people who will do anything for you.
I agree with some the movie didn't really have a point, it was just funny. Like I have said, funnier if you understand something more than the comfort of your own back yard.
Some good actors came together here to make a very decent comedy. Give it a try, it will make you laugh.
