The Brothers Grimsby Reviews

May 26, 2016
A couple of funny scenes, but it's amazing how quickly Sasha Baron Cohen's comedy has grown safe and stale.

Cohen, brilliant in his craftier and more avant-garde shock-humor roles, is too irritating to make this character likable, much less lovable as the story demands.

The joke at the heart of Sacha Baron Cohen's new comedy The Brothers Grimsby [is] an enjoyable one, even when the film as a whole weaves between being just hilariously foul and incoherently sloppy.

Mostly, The Brothers Grimsby simply wants to make you laugh. And it will.

A production that fails in every way at every turn.

His obsession with anal cavities and what goes in and comes out of them suggest Cohen is auditioning to be the after-dinner amusement at a proctologists' convention.

There's a bizarre, obsessive fixation on bodily fluids (in the gallons) and orifices (for spelunking). The problem is that the writers overly rely on these taboo, gross-out displays to provide laughs, instead of, you know, actual jokes.

It's one of those movies that's barely a movie; scenes don't follow any discernable logic, the action is incoherent when it's not deliberately inane, and so on.

"Grimsby" punches down - at the sick, at the poor, at anyone who's not quick enough to get out of its sloppy roundhouse rights. Boy, chronically unemployed drunks sure are funny, aren't they?

It's not unfunny in spots, but it huffs and puffs (among other bodily functions) more often than it splits the sides.
