Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The Brothers Grimsby showers viewers with a steady stream of Sacha Baron Cohen's edgy humor, but too many gags hit the wrong side of the line between audacious and desperate.
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...

Gross-out comedy is obsessed with bodily fluids, sex, guns.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Brothers Grimsby is an extremely crass spy comedy starring Mark Strong and Sacha Baron Cohen. As you might expect from the man behind Borat and Ali G, there's a lot of envelope-pushing, offensive content -- like men hiding in a female elephant's uterus as she's mounted repeatedly by male elephants who find their release inside her ... and all over them. And that's just one of the many raunchy, crude sequences involving bodily fluids and orifices (fireworks are inserted inside bums on more than one occasion, etc.). There are also frequent references to and jokes about sex, particularly oral sex, seduction, mating animals, and even HIV/AIDS; a woman's breasts are seen briefly, and there are other sex scenes, too. The movie's action leads to a high body count via gunshots, explosions, and more. Characters drink and smoke a ton, and there's extreme language in nearly every scene, with many uses of "f--k," "c--t," "s--t," "bitch," and more. All of that said, if you dig far below the boorish, gross-out humor, there's an underlying message about the importance of family.
