The Grimsby scenes were actually filmed in Essex. I suppose Grimsby wasn't grim enoughI live about 45 minutes away from Grimsby, and I remember the Sacha Baron Cohen came and visited the area, and was welcomed with open arms.
I rather wondered about this , as the chances of him doing a puff piece on the town were rather remote. It's as if no-one had seen any of his earlier efforts.
This film was crude, rude and lewd, as they say. It panders to the basest levels of schoolboy humour, and is entirely without any redeeming features whatsoever.
Naturally I am the target audience and I cannot remember laughing so hard for quite a while.
A guilty pleasure them, but I think once was enough. One for/rental streaming methinks.
