I’m still getting over this experience. I wasn’t expecting the kind of humour this was and that was the gross kind. The kind that makes me close my eyes and feel like I’m going to heave. I think they took it way, way too far with some of the gags.
Even so, there must be people who find this funny. I certainly heard some laughter. (I’m convince this was awkward laughter because ugh.)
This is not my kind of film. I did not like it at all and that’s purely because of the kind of comedy it is. If that kind of humour is your thing then go for it.
The action is pretty good, but there isn’t much of those scenes. It really is focused on humour. The pacing is good and the film is the right length.
I liked all the Actors and they did great with their exaggerated English roles. Although, some might feel offended by this film, considering the current state of the system.I think it would have been good if the entire film was set in Grimsby rather than moving to other locations. It could have fully capitalized on the English humour gag.
But if you don’t like gross humour then do not watch this. If I’d been at home then I’d have turned this film off immediately.
To sum up, Gross, and I mean gross, humour, Well paced, Good acting
Was it worth the watch? No
Would I re-watch? Never!!
