Having made a mockery of Kazakhstan in the 2006 film Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen turns his attentions to mocking the coastal British town of Grimsby in this lowbrow Bond spoof.
Football hooligan Nobby Butcher (Cohen) discovers his long-lost brother Sebastian Graves (Mark Strong) is a secret agent for MI6 and the two of them have to foil a terrorism plot during the World Cup football final.
The jokes are largely dick and fart jokes, with some bestiality thrown in with fat girl humour.
There are a couple of moments which may make you chuckle, dependant on how puerile your sense of humour, but Cohen's main focus here is to cause shock rather than make jokes.
