The Brothers Grimsby Reviews

November 10, 2018
You will not be chin-scratching while watching this in the manner of someone reviewing a lost black and white epic from 1928. The only things being scratched anywhere near this filth will be someone's slightly grubby Y-fronts. And yet, and yet...

Just expect to feel dirty, guilty and offended afterwards, and you'll have a great time with Grimsby.

In bad taste barely begins to describe some of the scenes.

What Baron Cohen has added to film comedy in the last decade is not insignificant, but it seems that the joke is reaching its end, but without a good punch line in sight.
December 3, 2017
The Brothers Grimsby contains some of the most lowbrow humor imaginable, and it's usually outrageous fun
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 24, 2017
The shaming truth is that I was amused; so amused that on several occasions I had to wipe tears of laughter from my eyes. The fact that I knew deep down that I really shouldn't be laughing at all just made it funnier.

At only 82 minutes, it's hard not to wonder whether something went desperately wrong behind the scenes or in the editing suite.

February 18, 2017
Delivering neither on engrossing action or effective satire, this mess is Cohen's worst film to date.
December 18, 2016
A wild, scatological slalom from the grimmer parts of northeast England to the plains of South Africa.
November 29, 2016
Hurting Grimsby most is its misuse of Rebel Wilson, Isla Fischer, Penelope Cruz, Barkhad Abdi, and Gabourey Sibide in broad bit parts that strictly connect one segment to another.
August 15, 2016
A rambunctiously uncouth satire that's as disgusting as it is riotous.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 5, 2016
The attempts at satire fall flat despite some broad targets, and the result produces more groans than laughs.
July 2, 2016
Even at less than 80 minutes sans end credits, "The Brothers Grimsby" is about as pleasant as elephant semen to the face.

June 25, 2016
It brings to mind such one-star atrocities as The Love Guru, Freddy Got Fingered, and Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie -- comparisons that make this new picture a Chernobyl of comedy.

It's taboo, it's politically incorrect, it's disrespectful and all with a love for the buttons it's pushing. They had me at the Daniel Radcliffe joke.
May 26, 2016
A couple of funny scenes, but it's amazing how quickly Sasha Baron Cohen's comedy has grown safe and stale.

April 25, 2016
Some of this is funny. A fair amount of it -- including the toilet joke -- isn't.
April 11, 2016
It's extreme for its own sake, and too rarely for the satirical purposes of Baron Cohen's better vehicles, "Borat" and "Bruno."
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 7, 2016
The comedy merely exists alongside a very ordinary action movie outline, rarely crossing paths and never working in concert.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 1, 2016
There are the expected fish-out-of-water beats and over-the-top gross-out gags, and the peripheral characters in this world feel like thinly sketched afterthoughts, but the film works when it focuses on Cohen and Strong.
