The Brothers Grimsby

This is possibly cinema’s new low-point.  I’m weirdly defensive of the work of Sacha Baron Cohen, believing him to be a far more intelligent social commentator and exposer of peoples’ prejudices than a perfunctory skim of his work would suggest… however this was just bollocks.  Why Mark Strong would agree to a film like this is a total mystery, and if you’re ever thinking of watching it I urge you to give me a call so I can describe the “highlights” to you and save you the waste of 80+ minutes. Reading this back I can’t believe I didn’t record mention of the brothers hiding inside a female elephant’s orofice, or the plan for neutralising the explosives at the end. 👎👎
